Fabio Borini's agent eyeing talks over striker's Liverpool future

Fabio Borini's agent Marco de Marchi has insisted that he wants to speak with Liverpool to clear the air on the striker's future at Anfield.

De Marchi also revealed that the Italian has had a number of loan moves blocked in recent months, despite rejecting permanent moves to Sunderland and Queens Park Rangers last summer, having been told he was surplus to requirements at Liverpool.

Brendan Rodgers' side came up short throughout a troubling season, with the 24-year-old scoring one goal in 12 Premier League appearances throughout the 2014-15 campaign, only five of which were starts.

"Soon we will have to talk to Liverpool," said Borini's agent. "Several teams have asked for Fabio on loan but the Liverpool board have always refused, especially in light of the £10m bid that was rejected last year from Sunderland."

Borini was the Northern Irishman manager's first addition back in 2012, as Rodgers paid £10 million to bring in Borini from AS Roma.

But the Italian has failed to live up to his potential since arriving on Merseyside, after an injury-hit first season restricted him to only a handful of appearances.

His second year in the Premier League was spent on loan at Sunderland, where he scored seven goals to help the Wearside club stave off relegation as well as scoring in their League Cup final loss to Manchester City.

Despite a successful stint at the Stadium of Light, Borini rejected the opportunity to move to Sunderland permanently after the Reds accepted a £14 million bid. 

Borini later turned down the opportunity to play for QPR the same summer, insisting he wanted to stay and prove himself at Liverpool despite limited first-team opportunities.

Having struggled to make an impact last season, with just 18 appearances in all competitions, his future on Merseyside is looking even more uncertain with Divock Origi and Danny Ings joining up with the squad later this summer.

Liverpool are now eager to cut their ties with Borini, insisting that they have no interest to allow him to go out on another loan spell as they look to rebuild their squad to challenge for a top-four next year.

Lazio are believed to be one of the sides interested in bringing Borini back to Serie A - who were said to be monitoring the striker a few years ago.
