Should Brendan Rodgers plot reunion with Fabio Borini at Celtic?

Celtic haven’t quite had the same threat in front of goal this season that they’ve become renowned for under manager Brendan Rodgers, which is why he should consider bolstering his attack in January.

The Bhoys only have Odsonne Edouard and Leigh Griffiths as their senior centre-forward options, while James Forrest has been the one main consistent winger.

Rodgers should turn his eye to Serie A and consider if a move for AC Milan’s Fabio Borini would be possible.

 

The Celtic boss signed him during his time with Liverpool and a reunion at Parkhead could be a great switch for both.

Borini managed to get his career back on track last season in his homeland with Milan and his loan switch was turned into a permanent one over the summer.

But the 27-year-old hasn’t quite had the same success at the San Siro this season and made just eight appearances across all competitions, with only four in the league.

He’s only complete 90 minutes in one game for AC and it could be worth Celtic considering tempting him into a January switch.

Borini is a versatile ace that can be deployed as a winger or centre-forward and he could be a decent addition for Rodgers’ current squad.

His finishing can be a little irrational at times, but he was directly involved in 12 goals across all competitions last season and certainly played for some elite clubs.
