Liverpool striker Borini not interested in Fiorentina move

Liverpool striker Fabio Borini will resist interest from Fiorentina.

Liverpool striker Fabio Borini will resist interest from Fiorentina.

Having consistently suffered from injuries since becoming Brendan Rodgers' first signing at the club, the 21-year-old Italian has yet to have a significant influence and has consequently been linked with a return to his homeland, something his representative Marco De Marchi insists is unlikely to happen.

"I have to be honest, I’ve not had any contact with anyone at Fiorentina," he told Firenze Viola.

"Fabio is happy at Liverpool because they are one of the most famous clubs in the world. He chose Liverpool in the summer and he’s happy with his English adventure.

"If Fiorentina, a club who have shown they are ready to target youngsters with bright futures, are really interested then we’d thank them.

"But Fabio is just focused on getting back to full fitness after injury and thinking only of Liverpool.

"Fabio is 21, he’s already changed five clubs and he’s contracted to Liverpool until 2017."
