Crystal Palace show interest in AC Milan winger Fabio Borini

Crystal Palace are planning a move for Fabio Borini.

According to a report from Calciomercato, Crystal Palace are showing interest in AC Milan winger Fabio Borini.

The Italy international was signed by AC Milan in July 2018 from Sunderland for a fee of 5.5 million euros. The 28-year-old has a contract until 2020 with the club.

There has been no movement on Fabio Borini agreeing a contract extension at AC Milan, and he will be on the radar of many European clubs during the winter.

AC Milan, however, would prefer to sell him in January than lose him on a free in the summer, so their asking price may not be too high.

Roy Hodgson wants to sign a new winger and Fabio Borini is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. Hodgson is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this winter.

According to Calciomercato, “Milan winger Fabio Borini seems to be destined to leave to Rossoneri soon due to new coach Stefano Pioli’s unwillingness to use the player, with multiple clubs now interested in him. The report details how Pioli doesn’t consider the 28-year-old Italian important to his project at the club, and therefore a move away seems likely. Borini has only made two appearances for the Rossoneri so far this season, both at the start. Since then he was only managed to appear on the bench. The three clubs interested in him are Genoa, Torino and Premier League side Crystal Palace. The South London club attempted to sign him this summer to no avail but considering his lack of play they made try again in January. Contracted to Milan until 2020, the most likely deal for Borini seems to be a loan deal with an option to buy, the report highlights. Milan aren’t keen on renewing his contract for another season and may be happy to sell the former Sunderland forward soon in order to stop him leaving on a free transfer next June.”


However, a move to Crystal Palace will be ideal for the 28-year-old at this point of his career.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Crystal Palace.

How strong that interest is and whether Crystal Palace will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
