Liverpool can only bring West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino to the club once they get rid of Italian forward Fabio Borini, as reported by the Daily Mirror.
The Reds are supposedly set to capture the England under-21 international for £23.5 million, according to recent reports, in an attempt to improve their striking options going into the second half of the season.
Their biggest rivals for his signature, Tottenham Hotspur, are now set to pursue Burnley striker Danny Ings instead.
However, before the Anfield club can spend another big sum on a striker, Brendan Rodgers has been told that he needs to fund a move by getting Fabio Borini to leave the club, according to The Sun.
This might turn out to be more difficult than expected.
Borini saw a £14 million bid for him from Sunderland accepted for him in the summer, but he turned down a switch in the hopes of establishing himself with Rodgers’ side.
He has, however, only made one start in the league.
