Report: West Ham, Aston Villa and Watford want Fabio Borini

The trio have been mentioned as possible interested parties for the Italian striker.

Aston Villa and Watford have free agent Fabio Borini in their sights during the current transfer window, according to reports by Tutto Mercato Web.

Interestingly, West Ham are also interested in the striker with Calcio Mercato claiming the Hammers are keen to bring him back to the Premier League.

Borini is available to sign for a new club after leaving Verona where he scored three goals in 16 appearances.

The 29-year-old is no stranger to England having featured for Chelsea, Swansea City, Liverpool and Sunderland.

An impressive resume in football also features spells with AC Milan and Roma but a lack of goals recently might alarm supporters of the linked clubs.

Villa will probably go in search of more firepower next season having survived on the final day of the season in 2019/20.

Wesley spent the second half of the campaign out injured, whilst Mbwana Samatta didn’t really hit the ground running.

 

West Ham finished last season with Michail Antonio operating as a striker and to be fair to him he was flying in the role.

Moyes will want competition for places though and Borini could provide a cheap option and one with some top-flight experience.

Watford could be the outside bet as they prepare for life without Premier League football.

Borini’s arrival could help the Hornets get over the departures of several high-profile players, with Ismaila Sarr likely to be the biggest name to leave.

Whoever lands the ex-Premier League man will need to hope they can get him firing again after a few years in the wilderness.

It’ll be a risk but he could prove shrewd on a free transfer as a squad option for Villa, Watford or West Ham.
