Report: Fabio Borini to remain at Liverpool during this transfer window

Borini has been linked with a move away from Anfield since he returned from his loan spell at Sunderland, but he seems to be staying put for now.

Liverpool striker Fabio Borini will be staying put in January according to the Liverpool Echo who report quotes from his agent. 

Borini was strongly linked with a move away from the Reds in the summer with Sunderland and Queens Park Rangers both having bids accepted for the Italian forward.

His agent, Marco De Marchi, was also talking about Werder Bremen defender Luca Caldirola, and was quoted, saying: “Borini and Caldirola will not return to Italy in January.

“I’m happy with Liverpool and Werder Bremen – the teams where they now play.”

Borini has been sparingly used by the Reds this season, with most of his action coming from the bench but he did start the weekend's win over Sunderland in the absence of Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge - but ahead of summer signings Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli. 

The Italian has failed to find the net after returning from a relatively successful loan spell at Sunderland last season where he found the net on 10 occasions - with confidence seemingly in short supply for Borini who has seemed eager to impress when given the opportunity by Brendan Rodgers this season.

There is some sort of role Borini can play at the club for now, but had he buried his golden opportunity when he rounded Costel Pantilimon at Sunderland, he may well have made things just that little more secure for him at Anfield.
