Liverpool striker not trying to force Italian exit

Fabio Borini’s agent has insisted that there’s no truth in rumours linking his client with a January move back to Italy from Liverpool.

The 23-year-old forward spent last season on loan at Sunderland and was expected to leave Anfield on a permanent basis during the last transfer window after the Reds accepted offers of around £14m from the Black Cats and QPR for his signature.

Despite the club’s decision Borini himself elected to stay put in a bid to battle for his future, yet some rumours have suggested that his choice was based on a potential loan move to Serie A in the winter, amid links with Inter Milan.

The former Chelsea, Swansea and Roma forward has since featured for the Merseysiders in both domestic and European games, and his agent, Marco De Marchi says that both the player and Liverpool are content with the current situation:

“Borini is a top level player, so consequently he has a contract with Liverpool and any club interested knows how to approach them,” he told

“At this moment I am certainly not going to look for another club, as the boy is happy to remain at Liverpool. Let’s not forget he left a journey he already started at Roma in order to come to England.

“Liverpool have no intention of loaning him out, as they already proved in August. We know that and so do all the clubs who came looking for him in the last transfer session.

“The situation is exactly the same as it was in September, in the sense that he is very happy to be part of this important team.

“He has managed to find some space playing in the Champions League and starting in the Premier League. Things are progressing as expected.”
