Borini’s agent dismisses exit rumours

The former Roma and Chelsea attacker has been linked with a move to Fiorentina recently due to his lack of playing time at Liverpool, but his representative rejected departure talk

Liverpool attacker Fabio Borini has no intention of leaving the club in the immediate future, his agent has declared.

The 21-year-old has struggled for a starting spot in the Reds’ first team this season after joining last summer from Roma, though has been hampered by injuries.

As a result, the former Chelsea forward has been linked with a move back to Serie A, with reports suggesting Fiorentina as his likely destination, but his representative Marco De Marchi dismissed any notion of his client leaving Anfield.

“I have to be honest, I’ve not had any contact with anyone at Fiorentina,” he told Firenze Viola.

“Fabio is happy at Liverpool because they are one of the most famous clubs in the world. He chose Liverpool in the summer and he’s happy with his English adventure.

“If Fiorentina, a club who have shown they are ready to target youngsters with bright futures, are really interested then we’d thank them.

“But Fabio is just focused on getting back to full fitness after injury and thinking only of Liverpool.

“Fabio is 21, he’s already changed five clubs and he’s contracted to Liverpool until 2017.”

Borini has played 14 competitive matches for Brendan Rodgers’ side, but the attacker has scored only once for the Reds.
