Borini could stay in England

The Italian striker recently joined the Swans on loan for the rest

of the season after failing to make the breakthrough into Carlo

Ancelotti’s first-team plans. He marked his Swans debut with a

decisive brace against Nottingham Forest and is wanted by several

clubs when his Blues deal runs out in the summer. Parma director of

football Antonello Preiti watched Borini in action for Italy’s

Under-21s last week, while the likes of fellow Serie A sides Lazio

and Juventus are also rumoured to be interested. Swansea boss

Brendan Rodgers is reportedly keen on a permanent deal as well and

Borini is keeping an open mind regarding his future. “I did not

know he (Preiti) was there, but I do know there’s interest in Parma

for me,” the 20-year-old is quoted by Wales Online. “But even then,

they are not the only team and if I start thinking about how many

are following me it will end up detracting from my real goal. “And

that’s to score five more goals by the end of the season with

Swansea. I want to play and grow and I have finally found a place

where I can. “We’ll see what happens but I really like the English

atmosphere and English football – I think that’s my football.”
