Liverpool ace bored by transfer speculation

Liverpool striker Fabio Borini has dismissed talk linking him with a move to Serie A side Inter Milan, who have reportedly edged ahead of fellow Italian outfit Fiorentina in the race for his signature.

Borini enjoyed a successful loan spell at Sunderland last season – netting ten times in all competitions – but has found first-team opportunities limited on his return to Anfield.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has favoured Borini’s compatriot Mario Balotelli to lead the line for the Reds this season,¬†which has led to speculation that the Italian is surplus to requirements.

However, the 23 year-old is desperate to prove himself at Anfield and is keen to stay at the club and fight for a place in the first team.

Speaking to the Italian press, Borini’s agent Marco De Marchi said:¬†“Inter and other clubs are interested in him but he’s happy here in Liverpool, [Brendan] Rodgers will decide.

“Fabio has great relationship with Rodgers. He wants to find space and he’s working for that.

“He has contract until 2017 and wants to play for Liverpool. The January market? Now is soon, let’s see.

“Many clubs are interested in him.

“We have respect for Liverpool so Fabio just thinks about Liverpool. When you play for one of best clubs in the world that is normal.”
