FABIO BORINI, a reported target for Liverpool, has admitted moving to Anfield did not enter his thoughts.
The 21-year-old completed a permanent move to Italian giants Roma over the weekend after Zdenek Zeman’s side paid the remaining half of his transfer fee with parent club Parma.
Borini spent last season on loan with Roma, scoring nine goals in 24 games, but there had been uncertainty over his long-term future and the Reds were said to be showing interest.
New Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers worked with Borini at Swansea with the forward scoring six goals in 12 appearances as part of his loan deal from Chelsea.
Having gained promotion to the Premier League, the Swans were hoping to secure a permanent deal for the Italian but Serie A Parma have swooped with a five-year deal.
Now the national under-21 player has moved onto Roma.
“I am a Roma player,” he said.
“It’s not my business that there is talk about whether I go to Liverpool or stay. It doesn’t matter to me, I am Roma.”
