The Italian striker spent last season on-loan with Sunderland.
"Fabio goes back to Liverpool to stay there, as stated by the manager Rodgers a few weeks ago," Marco De Marchi told Calcionews24.
"So far, Liverpool have not received any communication regarding his transfer.
"I would not be surprised if there were other clubs who want him, because I consider him a complete striker.
"But for the moment, all I can say with certainty is that Fabio has returned to Liverpool to stay."
