Fabio Borini, the caged lion, wants a fresh challenge

Send

Fabio Borini looks set to leave Liverpool according to his agent.

The reds striker played in just 12 Premier League games for the reds last year after refusing a move to Sunderland last summer.  It was believed that the Black Cats had offered £13M for the player.

He now has one year left on his Liverpool contract and at 24, and having failed to convince Brendan, has decided he needs to be playing regular first team football.

Fabio Borini was Brendan Rodgers' first signing at Liverpool Football Club - costing the club around £10M- and was a player that Brendan had already worked with at both Chelsea and Swansea.

Speaking to Italian media outlet Corriere dello Sport, his agent Marco de Marchi said:

"Fabio wants a new experience

Top clubs in Europe are keen on him, from the Premier League to the Bundesliga and there also clubs in Italy, but many clubs in Italy have had coaching changes and that has slowed things down.

He has no preference, he just wants a team that gives him a clear chance to prove himself.

Right now he feels like a lion in a cage."

Borini has made 38 appearances for Liverpool and scored 3 times.  His season on loan at Sunderland saw him score 10 goals in 40 appearances.
