The agent of Liverpool striker Fabio Borini has suggested his client will leave Anfield this summer, but wants him to join a club playing in European competition.

On 8 June, Liverpool confirmed they have struck a deal with Burnley striker Danny Ings, who will join the club when his deal with the Clarets expires on 1 July.

The Reds will have six strikers on their books then in Ings, Daniel Sturridge, Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert, Divock Origi and Borini, but Brendan Rodgers will look to streamline his forward options during the summer transfer window.

And while the club have previously resisted offers for the former Roma striker, his agent has indicated it is now time to move on.

"I want to make this clear once again. Borini is a serious professional; what matters for him is to find a team of the top level, with a serious technical project and the opportunity to perhaps play in the European cups," Borini's agent Marco De Marchi told Calcio Mercato.

"Soon we will have to talk to Liverpool. Several teams have asked for Fabio on loan but [Liverpool] have always refused, especially in light of the offer of €18m [£13.2m, €20.1m] last year from Sunderland.

"I think taking Fabio today, at the age of 24, at the height of his career, with only one year on his contract, is a real steal."

De Marchi added clubs from England, Spain, Italy and Germany have shown an interest in his client, although he ruled out approaches from Lazio and Torino.

Bologna were among the clubs to try and bring the player back to Serie A on loan in January only for Liverpool to reject their advances. The club recently suggested they will make a fresh approach during the summer transfer window.

Borini, who became the first signing of the Rodgers era on Merseyside in 2012, started just four games in all competitions last season, scoring once.
