Borini injury leaves Liverpool short on strikers

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will be without Italy international Fabio Borini for up to two months after the Italy international was found to have a broken foot after complaining of pain in his right foot while on national team duty, the Liverpool Echo has reported.

Borini moved to Liverpool from Roma over the summer, signing in at Anfield for a fee of just over £10m, having previously worked with Rodgers during a brief loan spell at Swansea City while a contracted Chelsea player. Borini has yet to score for his new club in any of his five appearances.
The injury to Borini leaves Luis Suarez as the only senior striker available to Rodgers, the Echo notes.

Following the loan departure of Andy Carroll to West Ham United, Liverpool attempted to sign Clint Dempsey from Fulham but were unable to agree a deal with the Cottagers, and Dempsey instead moved to Tottenham Hotspur. That means Rodgers will be forced to turn to youngsters to supplement his attack, if need be.
