Liverpool striker Fabio Borini is getting ready for the new season with an extreme fitness routine.
The Italian, who impressed on loan at Sunderland last season, posted a picture to his Twitter account that showed him sprinting up a hill in gruelling heat.
"Different gradient hill sprints in the 30 degree heat! Getting ready..." he posted to his Twitter account.
Borini, 23, has been the subject of interest from Sunderland, after he scored crucial goals for Gus Poyet's men in the run-in last season, as Sunderland managed to escape relegation.

However, with Luis Suarez's future at Anfield unclear, Brendan Rodgers may want to hold on to the striker as extra cover.
Borini scored 10 goals in total last season, but has just two in 20 appearances for the Reds.
