Liverpool transfers: Fabio Borini is desperate to stay at Anfield and fight for a first-team place next season

Fabio Borini is desperate to stay at Liverpool and fight for a first-team place next season, the striker’s agent has said.

The forward spent last season on loan to Sunderland and the Black Cats have recently tabled a £14m bid to sign the 23-year-old on a permanent deal.

I think he will stay, he is convinced that he will play

However, the Italian’s agent insists that his client wants to stay at Anfield and earn a regular spot in Brendan Rodgers’ first team.

“Sunderland have made a large offer of €18m (£14m) to sign him, but Fabio wants to stay,” Marco De Marchi told tuttomercatoweb.com.

“His project with Liverpool started two years ago when he left Roma. He began a journey and it is a major project for him.

“He should not be judged on his first year [at Liverpool]. He was out for six months with various injuries and during the past year he took a step back by going to Sunderland and he has had an extraordinary season.

“Now, after the loan, Liverpool have not told me anything. I think he will stay, he is convinced that he will play.”
