Liverpool has confirmed Fabio Borini is to undergo an operation on a fractured bone in his foot.
The forward originally sustained an injury to the area during the recent Anfield clash with Manchester United.
He then further aggravated the problem resulting in a fracture and returned from international duty with Italy last week.
Borini was assessed by the club's medical team upon his return to Melwood and a decision was made for the 21-year-old to have surgery.
Typically, an injury of this nature requires a three-month rehabilitation period.
