Borini's agent claims QPR proposal was not important enough
Fabio Borini's agent has claimed that his client's deadline day transfer to Queens Park Rangers (QPR) fell through because their proposal "was not for an important player".
The Liverpool striker, 23, turned down summer moves to Sunderland and QPR despite being deemed surplus to requirements by Brendan Rodgers.
While QPR claim the deal collapsed because of Borini's reported £90,000-a-week (S$186,000) wage demands, the player snubbed the Londoners because their offer was not suitable, according to agent Marco de Marchi.
De Marchi also said that Serie A side Inter Milan were keen to sign Borini, although their loan approach was rebuffed by Liverpool.
Sky Sports ran quotes from fcinternews.it from de Marchi as saying: "The player still has two years on his contract with Liverpool and they decided not to consider offers for a loan.
"Inter Milan and other very important clubs in Europe wanted him on loan. Liverpool didn’t accept and then QPR made an offer to buy him immediately. But the proposal for the player was not a proposal for an important player.
"Now Fabio will stay with Liverpool and try to convince the coach to give him a chance. He is used to fighting for things.
"I don't know what will happen in the January market."
