Fabio Borini: Liverpool striker subject of £10m QPR bid

The 23-year-old is believed to have been shortlisted by QPR manager Harry Redknapp as a replacement for striker Loic Remy after the Frenchman completed a £10.5million move to Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Italy striker Borini spent last term on loan with Sunderland, notching seven goals in a productive spell and leaving Poyet keen to secure the 23-year-old's services on a repeat temporary deal.

Former Uruguay midfielder Poyet said after Sunderland's 1-0 loss at QPR on Saturday that he remained hopeful of securing a deal for Borini before Monday night's transfer deadline.

Rangers boss Redknapp has moved in with an offer for a permanent transfer that Liverpool have accepted, with a fee that could rise to £13million with add-on clauses.

Redknapp remains hopeful of completing a deal to bring midfielder Sandro to Loftus Road from Spurs, while Jermain Defoe has been heavily linked with joining QPR from Toronto.
