Former Liverpool player Fabio Borini has urged his old club to hijack a deal that Manchester United have long had their eye on. Borini spent three years at Anfield after Brendan Rodgers signed him from Serie A side Roma.

The Italian’s time at the club was hampered by injury and he scored just three goals in 38 appearances for the Reds.

But despite his Liverpool move not working out, the 30-year-old clearly still holds an affection for his old club.

And with Jurgen Klopp’s men enduring a disappointing season, Borini has now weighed in with his view about who they could sign in the summer transfer window.

The Reds are set to be active in the market once this season ends, with arrivals expected as Klopp tries to turn the club’s form around.

One of the main areas that is need of reinforcements is attack, with Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane suffering dips in form this term.

Back-ups such as Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri have also failed to impress when called upon, meaning a refresh is needed.

Borini believes he knows exactly who the Reds should sign to boost their spluttering attack, though it is a player who fierce rivals United have long had their eye on.

“Looking at Liverpool’s competitors I think more depth in the attacking positions would do the team good,” he told CaughtOffside.

“Jadon Sancho would be a great signing and it would be fun to steal him from Man United.”

The Red Devils attempted to sign Sancho last summer from Borussia Dortmund, but could not agree a fee for the winger.

With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side also in need of a wide man, it is expected that they will once again attempt to bring the Englishman to Old Trafford when the summer window opens.

Though he has been sidelined with a torn muscle injury for the past five weeks, Sancho has continued to impress for Dortmund.

Since joining the Bundesliga side from Manchester City in 2017, the 21-year-old has scored 46 goals and notched 60 assists.

That includes 12 goals and 16 assists this season, in what has been a disappointing campaign for the Black and Yellow, who look set to miss out on Champions League qualification.

Sancho’s form has also earned him 18 England caps and he is pushing for a place in Gareth Southgate’s squad for this summer’s European Championships.

The winger’s contract does not expire until the summer of 2023 and it is expected that Dortmund will demand at least £100million for the winger.
