The Italian international had been linked with a return to Italy after playing just 14 times and scoring only once in a Liverpool shirt having suffered several injury problems in his first season on Merseyside.
The arrival of Daniel Sturridge from Chelsea and Inter Milan midfielder Philippe Coutinho in the January transfer window has put Borini further done the pecking order at Liverpool and prompted speculation of interest from Fiorentina.
But Borini’s agent Marco De Marchi insists the forward is committed to Liverpool and said: “I have to be honest, I’ve not had any contact with anyone at Fiorentina. Fabio is happy at Liverpool because they are one of the most famous clubs in the world. He chose Liverpool in the summer and he’s happy with his English adventure.
“If Fiorentina, a club who have shown they are ready to target youngsters with bright futures, are really interested then we’d thank them. But Fabio is just focused on getting back to full fitness after injury and thinking only of Liverpool. Fabio is 21, he’s already changed five clubs and he’s contracted to Liverpool until 2017.”
Borini worked with manager Rodgers twice before arriving at Liverpool. During his time as a youngster at Chelsea, Rodgers worked in the Stamford Bridge academy and after taking over as Swansea boss he signed Borini on loan and scored six times in 12 games for the club.
