Liverpool have agreed a fee of £12 million for the sale of Fabio Borini to Queen’s Park Rangers, with just hours remaining in the transfer window.
The Reds had agreed a £14 million deal with Sunderland for Borini last month, but the move failed to materials amid reports Borini was keen to stay and fight for his place at Anfield.
However, it looks as if Liverpool are keen to sell the Italian forward permanently having brought in strikers Rickie Lambert and Mario Baltoelli this summer.
James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo tweeted on Monday afternoon:

Borini would be seen as a direct replacement for striker Loic Remy, who left QPR for Chelsea over the weekend.
