Borini agent plays down Liverpool exit amid Lazio interest

The Italian striker endured an unspectacular debut season at Anfield, hampered by injuries, but is only focused on cementing a place in Brendan Rodgers' first team.

Fabio Borini will not be leaving Liverpool to join Lazio, according to the player's agent.

The Italy international suffered an injury-plagued debut season at Anfield and managed just two Premier League goals during the 2012-13 campaign. Speculation has mounted that the 22-year-old could return to Serie A, with Lazio thought to be keen on the former Roma forward, but that possibility was ruled by the player's representative, Marco De Marchi.

"I can confirm that Lazio sporting director Igli Tare has always been a fan of Fabio, but I have not had any contact with Lazio," De Marchi told Radio Sei. "What I can assure you is that Borini is concentrating on doing well for Liverpool to beat the competition for places in attack.

"At his moment in time he only has Liverpool in his mind. We are talking about one of the greatest clubs in the world."
