Liverpool transfers: Fabio Borini’s future is with the Reds, says agent
Liverpool transfers: Fabio Borini's agent says the Italy international will not be leaving the Merseyside outfit in the summer
Fabio Borini’s long-term future is with Liverpool, according to the striker’s agent.
The Italy international is expected to be sidelined for the rest of the season after suffering a dislocated shoulder in the Reds’ 5-0 victory over Swansea City on Sunday.
The 21-year-old has failed to score in nine Premier League appearances in his first season at Liverpool after joining in a £10.5m deal from Roma.
But Borini’s agent Marco De Marchi insists the injured forward will remain at Anfield.
“His future is definitely at Liverpool,” De Marchi told TMW.
“He’s signed a long-term deal with one of the most glorious sides in the world game.”
Borini only returned to action in January after breaking a bone in his right foot during training with Italy’s Under-21 side last October.
And Rodgers admitted that the striker’s absence would be a big blow to Liverpool following the Swansea victory.
“It looks like he has a dislocated shoulder which will keep him out for the season,” said Rodgers on Sunday.
“He suffered a similar injury while at Chelsea but on the other side. It’s a big, big blow for us.”
