Fabio Borini believes he can star for Liverpool and provide plenty of goals if given a regular run in the first team.

The Italian striker looked set to quit Anfield in the summer, with Sunderland and QPR both chasing his signature.

He opted to stay at Liverpool and fight for a first team place, and has managed three appearances in all competitions so far this season.

But Borini has larger ambitions, revealing he is hoping to surpass his 10 goals for Sunderland last season, and win a call up to the Italian national side.

Asked about his goals for the season by the club’s official website, Borini replied: “Step by step, to get into the team as soon as possible and as much as possible.

“After that, I want to stay in the team, score goals and break my scoring record in the Premier League and perform. I haven’t changed my personality [since going out on loan] but I have improved my game.

“I can offer hard work in performances every week and goals, as I did in the past. For Sunderland, I did very well and scored important goals.

“I can do the same here; with better players around me, it could probably be easier and with better results. I want to get back in the national team as well because that’s a big aim.

“With a new manager [Antonio Conte], a new system and a new structure to the Italian national team, that can be a really good target for me, to get into the team and stay there as long as possible.”
