Fabio Borini will not be leaving Liverpool before this month’s January transfer window closes, according to his agent.
The one-time Italy international has been a Reds player since 2012, but his spell on Merseyside has been largely forgettable.
He spent last season on loan with Sunderland, and despite Liverpool accepting an offer worth around £14m from the Black Cats for him, Borini elected to stay at Anfield and battle for his future.
However, the 23-year-old has once again struggled for game time under Rodgers, leading to speculation off a move back to his homeland in the coming weeks.
But his agent, Marco De Marchi, says that the versatile forward has no interest in leaving Liverpool and that he’s content with life at the club:
“Borini will not return to Italy in January. He is happy with Liverpool, the club he is playing for.” He is quoted by talkSPORT.
Borini was handed a rare start by Rodgers last weekend against Sunderland, but is expected to see his chances reduced further when Daniel Sturridge returns from a lengthy spell on the sidelines through injury.
