Roma's director of football Walter Sabatini has confirmed that Liverpool have made their interest in Fabio Borini known to them.
New Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is said to be a big admirer of the 21-year-old, whom he managed during his stint in charge of Swansea City.
During a press conference in Rome this afternoon, Sabatini revealed that the Italian club are now considering Liverpool's wish to sign the striker with their general manager.
"There is a real interest shown by Liverpool for Borini," said Sabatini. "We're currently evaluating the situation with [Franco Baldini]."
Borini joined Roma in the summer of 2011 from Parma.
