Liverpool forward Fabio Borini needs surgery on his broken foot and is set to be out for around three months. 

The Reds forward sustained a fracture during his side's recent defeat to Manchester United before further aggravating it whilst on international duty with Italy

The former Roma striker had to be substituted at half-time after sustaining the injury during the Reds' recent 2-1 defeat to Manchester United and further aggravated the blow whilst on international duty with Italy.

The 21-year-old, who joined from Roma in July, aggravated the injury while training with the Italian Under-21 squad for their fixture against Sweden last week. 

And the club have now confirmed that the 21-year-old will go under the knife after being assessed at Melwood and is set to be absent for some time.

The blow leaves Liverpool with just one senior striker, Luis Suarez, available following their failure to capture Clint Dempsey from Fulham during the summer transfer window.

Youngsters Samed Yesil and Jerome Sinclair have both recently featured in the League Cup and could now be handed further opportunities. 

 Borini, a former Chelsea trainee, moved to Anfield in the summer for an undisclosed fee reported to be in the region of £11m.

He scored on his home debut in August in a 3-0 win in Europa League qualifying against FC Gomel, but has yet to find the net again.
