Fabio Borini is returning to Liverpool this summer and has no intention of leaving, according to the player's agent.
Borini, who moved to the Reds in 2012 from Roma, was shipped out on loan to Sunderland last season.
The 23-year-old proved to be a hit with the Black Cats as he helped the club avoid relegation and get to the Capital One Cup final.
Sunderland manager Gus Poyet is keen to keep hold of Borini, while Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says he has a future at Anfield.
Borini's agent, Marco De Marchi, feels there could be other clubs interested in his client, but is insistent that his main priority is to gain a place in Rodgers' first team.
"Fabio goes back to Liverpool to stay there, as stated by the manager Rodgers a few weeks ago," De Marchi told Calcionews24.
"So far, Liverpool have not received any communication regarding his transfer.
"I would not be surprised if there were other clubs who want him, because I consider him a complete striker.
"But for the moment, all I can say with certainty is that Fabio has returned to Liverpool to stay."
