Borini (shoulder) is once again a target of Sunderland's, who had agreed to a transfer fee with Liverpool before he was injured during Liverpool's preseason tour of the United States, the Daily Mail reports.

Borini wanted to fight for his spot at Liverpool instead of moving to Sunderland, but the injury put everything on hold. Liverpool appeared ready to send him away, but after Loic Remy failed a physical with the club, there may just be a spot for Borini early in the season.

The shoulder injury that Borini suffered during Liverpool's friendly against AS Roma in Boston on Wednesday is not considered serious, ESPN FC reports. "It's probably not bad as first thought; he's had problems in the past with his shoulder," manager Brendan Rodgers said. "He's only bruised it, so he'll miss a few days of training and he won't train for the remainder of the trip here, but it's only a matter of days until he's back training and playing again."

Liverpool have already agreed to send Borini to Sunderland for a 14 million transfer fee, although Borini has publicly stated that he wants to fight for his place at Anfield. With Loic Remy all but a Red, Borini may have to leave Liverpool to get consistent first team football.

Borini left Liverpool's friendly against AS Roma at Fenway Park on Wednesday due to a shoulder injury, the club's official web site reports.

The extent of the injury likely won't be known until after a scan, but Borini was immediately replaced by Emre Can after hurting the shoulder. Borini has been heavily linked to a return to Sunderland this season, but he has stated publicly that he wants to fight for his place at Liverpool.

Borini looks to be on the verge of a 14 million move that will see him join Sunderland on a permanent transfer from Liverpool, the Northern Echo reports.

Borini impressed during his loan spell with The Black Cats last season, scoring 10 goals in all competitions. A move away from Liverpool will ensure the 23-year-old Italian will see more time on the pitch, giving his fantasy value a definite boost.

Borini scored the only goal for Sunderland in the 1-3 loss to Swansea Sunday.

Borini had a great final month of the season grabbing four goals and an assist in his final five matches. In the other 27 games he played, he only had three goals, so it's tough to say which Borini will show up next season.

Borini's fine end of the season run continued, as he netted against West Brom in the 2-0 win Wednesday.

This is now three goals and an assist in his past four matches and it seems as though Borini is finally comfortable as a Black Cat. This is a very promising sign for his future as Sunderland are desperate to find a consistent every-week striker. Borini and Sunderland finish off the season this weekend hosting Swansea City in what's likely to be a party atmosphere at the Stadium of Light.

Borini had a goal and an assist in Sunderland's 4-0 win over Cardiff City on Sunday.

Borini has been red hot for the Black Cats recently, recording two goals and one assist in his last two games. It's been an impressive run, but he has been out-shined by Connor Wickham, who has five goals in his last three games.

Borini converted the crucial penalty late to beat Chelsea 2-1 in the shocking result Saturday.

Borini has struggled this season and this is only his second goal since February 1. Sunderland are going to need more production from Borini as they still have an uphill climb to get out of the bottom-three. They finish up the season hosting the two Welsh clubs(Cardiff and Swansea) and at Manchester United. Borini will surely finish up the season starting to see if they want to keep him for next season.
