Fabio Borini's agent has insisted the striker has no interest in leaving Liverpool in the summer despite speculation claiming the Italian is set to sign a deal to return to his home country.

Borini made the move to Merseyside over the 2012 summer after Rodgers had already worked with the 22 year old at Swansea.

The manager insisted he had complete faith in the hitman to make up for the absence of Andy Carroll, but injuries have hampered his progress and Borini has scored just once in his 16 appearances.

In fact, he has played in the league this year just five times, leaving way for rumours that he might go in search of a club where he can get more game time at the end of the season. But agent Marco De Marchi insists this isn't the case, and that his player is totally committed to the long-term success of Liverpool.

Fabio Borini
Fabio Borini isn't interested in leaving Liverpool, his agent claims.

"I've heard the Fiorentina rumours, but there has been no direct contact," he told an Italian radio station.

"Borini has bought into the Liverpool project and they are one of the most important clubs in the world."

Borini was unable to fill an important gap in the Liverpool line-up in the first half of the campaign, with Rodgers forced to dip into the January transfer market to find a striker to alleviate the pressure from Luis Suarez.

Daniel Sturridge has so far been a success at Anfield, scoring five times in nine matches and he has heaped more pressure on Borini to deliver on the goal front.

The former Roma man, who cost Liverpool £10.5 million, is currently recovering from shoulder surgery and will likely not play for the club again for the rest of the season.
