Fabio Borini is ready to commit his future to Liverpool in the face of further transfer speculation…
Liverpool striker Fabio Borini is not going anywhere this month, with his agent telling reporters that he expects his client to remain at Anfield beyond the January transfer window.
Reports in the Liverpool Echo confirm that the Italian’s future has been the subject of plenty of speculation, with his opportunities having been limited for the Reds so far this term.
Last weekend’s win at Sunderland was Borini’s first Premier League start since the trip to West Ham back in September, but according to the source, he won’t be going anywhere this winter.
His agent Marco De Marchi, who also represents Werder Bremen defender Luca Caldirola, said: “Borini and Caldirola will not return to Italy in January. I’m happy with Liverpool and Werder Bremen – the teams where they now play.”
Borini, 23, was told he was surplus to requirements last summer but rejected moves to both Sunderland and Queens Park Rangers, and vowed to force his way back into Brendan Rodgers’ plans.
However, he’s still yet to score a goal this season, and has in fact only netted twice in 33 appearances for the club in total. Borini cost Liverpool a little over £10m from Roma in 2012, and spent last season on loan with Sunderland.
