Fabio Borini’s agent confirms Fiorentina transfer talks

The Liverpool fringe forward looks set for a move away from Anfield, with negotiations with the Viola continuing.

The agent of Liverpool attacker Fabio Borini has confirmed that he has held discussions with Fiorentina over a potential transfer, as per Radio Blu.

The former Sunderland loanee has seemingly slipped down the pecking order at Anfield following the summer arrivals of Christian Benteke, Divock Origi, Danny Ings and Roberto Firmino.

With first-team football looking like it will be a commodity for Borini if he stays with the Merseyside club, the Italian’s representative has confirmed that discussions over an Anfield exit have begun.

Marco De Marchi also stated that the player was evaluating other options, as his time at Liverpool looks to be drawing to a close.

“Yes, we have spoken to Fiorentina, but are evaluating everything carefully,” the agent told Radio Blu.

“Fabio will decide also based on Liverpool’s needs. We are looking for an important project in Italy or elsewhere, but for the moment he doesn’t have a preference.”

Borini joined Liverpool from Roma in 2012, reuniting with Brendan Rodgers following their mutual time together at Swansea.

However, the Italy international has struggled to show his best form at the Anfield outfit, with the 24-year-old a back-up option for the majority of his time with the club.

Borini featured in 12 Premier League games last season, but only started three of the fixtures as Rodgers trusted others instead of the Italian.
