Borini focused on Liverpool

Fabio Borini’s agent claims his client is happy at Liverpool and

is keen to distance himself from talk of a move to Fiorentina.

Borini only moved to Anfield last summer, with Brendan Rodgers

bringing in a player he worked with during a loan spell at Swansea

City.

The Italian has not enjoyed the best of starts to life in the

Premier League on Merseyside, with injuries having prevented him

from making the desired impact.

It has been suggested that he could be tempted to head home at

the end of the season, with Fiorentina prepared to offer him a

route back to Serie A.

But Borini’s representative has moved to rubbish such reports,

with the 21-year-old fully focused on being a success in the

Premier League and justifying the faith shown in him by

Liverpool.

Marco De Marchi told firenzeviola.it: “I have never been

contacted by Fiorentina and I have nothing to suggest they are

interested.

“Fabio is happy to play for Liverpool, one of the most

prestigious clubs in the world, and is happy with his experience in

the Premier League.

“A return to Italy? Fabio is 21 years old and has already

changed teams five times. He is tied to Liverpool until 2017.

“If the reported interest from Fiorentina is true, then we

should thank them as they are a club that has focused on the

nurturing of young talent, but I haven’t discussed this with

Fabio.

“He is just back from an injury and his season starts now. His

mind is wholly focused on Liverpool.”
