Fabio Borini
Fabio Borini's agent says he is only considering his future with Liverpool.

Fabio Borini will fight for his place at Liverpool this season after his agent admitted Lazio have yet to make contact over his availability.

Brendan Rodgers was reunited with the Italian last summer as the manager made the move to Merseyside following a previous spell together at Swansea City, but his season suffered as a result of a broken foot and dislocated shoulder and as a result the 22 year old didn't score a goal for the club until the end of April.

Rodgers has continually maintained faith that Borini will show his worth for Liverpool, though the January signing of Daniel Sturridge and the summer addition of Iago Aspas has increassed competition for a starting spot ahead of the new season.

But Borini's agent has confirmed that despite recent reports of a possible move to Lazio he is happy to stay and prove himself to Rodgers.

"I can confirm that Lazio sporting director Igli Tare has always been a fan of Fabio, but I have not had any contact with Lazio," Marco De Marchi told Radio Sei.

"What I can assure you is that Borini is concentrating on doing well for Liverpool to beat the competition for places in attack.

"At this moment in time he only has Liverpool in his mind, we are talking about one of the greatest clubs in the world."

The news will be a welcome boost for Rodgers, who has been continually fielding questions about the future of another one of his strikers, with Luis Suarez insisting he wants a move away from Liverpool this summer.

Rodgers has talked up the prospect of building depth in each position for the Reds this summer as he looks to compete for a top four spot next season and Borini's return to full fitness - the hitman participated in Italy's Under 21 European Championship campaign this summer - comes as a signficant boost.
