The agent of Sunderland striker Fabio Borini admits a return to Italy could be on.

Borini is on-loan at Sunderland from Liverpool.

"Does Walter Mazzarri appreciate him? I was in the Inter headquarters a few days ago, but there was no formal request," agent Marco De Marchi told

"I can say that if Fabio's situation doesn't change in the next month, we could evaluate a return to Italy so that he can find the consistency he needs ahead of the World Cup. Borini would absolutely love to take part in that tournament.

"Liverpool will not let go of the player definitively, so it would still be a loan spell. He is a modern striker, has an eye for goal and is appreciated by many in Italy and beyond."
