Sunderland have had a good start to the summer in the transfer market by signing a couple of players already.
Manager Gus Poyet clearly doesn’t want to find himself in the same position as he did in the last campaign.
Sunderland will look to get off to a flying start next season with several new players in the squad.
And latest reports suggest that they are hellbent on signing striker Fabio Borini on a permanent basis.
The Daily Mail reports that Sunderland are going to make a £10 million bid to sign the striker for good after the youngster showed simple glimpses of brilliant form towards the end of last season.
Sunderland test Liverpool’s resolve with £10m bid for striker Fabio Borini
The deal is understood to break down as £8m with £2m in add-ons.
Borini, who scored in both Tyne-Wear derbies and put them ahead against Manchester City in the Capital One Cup final, was voted Sunderland’s young player of the year.
Borini never really settled on Merseyside but he looks like he’s found a home at Sunderland and is developing into a top player at last – one that Gus Poyet will do very well to sign.
Let’s see some of his best moments for Sunderland over the last season. Do you think he’s worth the cash?
