Hellas Verona have announced they have completed the signing of Italian striker Fabio Borini from AC Milan. It is believed that the 28-year-old has signed a deal until the end of the season with the Serie A club.

Borini was signed by Chelsea at the age of 16 in the summer of 2007 from the Bologna youth team. There were big hopes for the youngster, and after impressing with the Chelsea youth team, he had successful loan spells with Swansea and Roma.

Despite that, he failed to break into the first team and eventually left to join Liverpool in 2012. After two seasons in Merseyside, he signed for Sunderland on a season-long loan deal before moving permanently the following summer.

After two more successful seasons, he returned to Italy to join AC Milan on loan before joining permanently the following year. He now leaves the club after three years.

Borini’s career has been a journey where he has moved club to club. He has built a reputation as a top professional who has always been valued at his respective clubs.

He has only one cap for Italy’s national side, which was a friendly against USA in 2012. He was also picked by former Italy manager Cesar Prandelli for the Euro 2012 squad but did not come off the bench.
