Fabio Borini admits he is relishing the prospect of proving himself at the top level after the Italian penned a long-term deal at Liverpool on Friday.

The Italy forward moves to Anfield from Roma for an undisclosed fee, although it is believed to be in the region of £11m.

He links up with new Reds boss Brendan Rodgers for the third time, having worked under the northern Irishman during his stints at the Chelsea academy and Swansea City.

“I wanted to come back to England one day,” Borini told Liverpool’s website. “I knew sooner or later I would be back. Being back with Liverpool is even better because I can show the people what I can do. We’ve got the Europa League and lots of things to play for.”

The 21-year-old, who will wear the No29 shirt at Liverpool, says he is also looking forward to linking up with Uruguay striker Luis Suarez at Anfield.

“He is maybe another player who is similar to me because he works very hard in every game,” he added. “I’ve watched a few games, and all of Europe wants him. Every player wants to play with him, so it will be a pleasure.”

Having played under Rodgers at Stamford Bridge and the Liberty Stadium, Borini is backing the new Reds manager to bring a successful and attractive brand of football to Merseyside.

“It is great to play football for him because you can have fun and you can get results,” he said. “I could see at Swansea the people loved him because the football was attractive. People like to see football [played] like this.

“[The fans] will certainly see football players that want to win, and that will always work for the team rather than themselves. Liverpool wants to get results and that’s what we’ll try to do. With Brendan [the fans] will see good football.”
