2012/13 Barclays Premier League
Borini signed for Liverpool in the summer of 2012 after choosing to re-join former boss Brendan Rodgers at the club.
The striker has represented Italy at various youth levels and started his career with Bologna before Chelsea's head of youth recruitment Frank Arnesen lured him to West London. In the 2008-09 campaign the natural finisher was top scorer for Chelsea's reserve side with four goals in eight appearances and also netted 11 in 10 for the club's youth setup.
The arrival of his fellow Italian Carlo Ancelotti was the catalyst for his rise to prominence and Borini was handed a first-team debut in September 20 when appearing as a substitute in a 3-0 win over Tottenham in the Premier League.
However, he was unable to secure a first-team place and he opted to move to Swansea on loan until the end of the 2010-11 season. Six goals in nine starts ensured that he was back to his best, but it emerged that a pre-contract agreement with Parma had already been signed and he went back to Italy.
A rather confusing state of co-ownership affairs followed as, just a month later, Borini signed for Italian club Roma on loan for €1.25m, with an option to buy for €7m. He stayed in Rome for a season and, in June 2012, Roma paid Parma €5.3m to secure the other 50% of Borini's rights.
But he was soon on the move again. In July, he chose to move to Liverpool and a fee of €13.3 million was agreed so he could re-join former Swans' boss Rodgers.
Strengths: Quick and agile, he is a versatile player who can play up front on his own or in a wide position.
Weaknesses: Consistency is an issue and he has not provided the deadly finishing touch of someone who cost as much as he did.
Career high: His loan spell at Roma ensured that he was being tracked by Europe's elite.
Career low: After thinking he was going to get a chance at Chelsea, he was relegated to the reserves in 2009-10.
Style: Fast, agile, strong, a striker with much to prove.
Quotes: "I've always played in the middle. I find things come more naturally to me there. If the ball drops in the box, I can sense how it will bounce, what a defender will do. I can read it early, it is a kind of instinct. When you play wide, you end up far away from the goal." Fabio Borini on his favourite position, 2012.
Trivia: Borini is nicknamed 'The Pirate' because of his trademark goal celebration.
