Liverpool ready to offload Italian to Fiorentina

Alberto-AquilaniLiverpool have accepted an undisclosed offer from Fiorentina for Italian midfielder Alberto Aquilani.

The 28-year-old has flown to Italy from the Reds' pre-season tour of the United States to complete his move.

Liverpool are likely to step up their attempts to sign Swansea's Joe Allen if the deal proceeds as expected.

Aquilani has failed to settle at Anfield since signing in 2009 for £20million from Roma and has been on loan for the last two seasons.

The Italian’s lucrative contract equates to around £6.5 million a year, an expense which has only been reduced in recent years thanks to loan deals.

To put it into perspective, the £125,000 a week he is currently costing the Anfield club double what Anfield stalwart Jamie Carragher earns.

His stints at AC Milan last term and Juventus in the 2010-11 season mean he did not play for former Reds' managers Kenny Dalglish and only made two appearances for Roy Hodgson.

And despite having two years left on his contract and completing pre-season under new boss Brendan Rodgers, it appears that his time at Liverpool is coming to a conclusion.

Rafael Benitez brought Aquilani to Anfield as a replacement for Xabi Alonso, but he struggled with injury and made 26 appearances in his first season.

Liverpool playmaker on the move again

One Liverpool FC midfielder’s name has been dominating the headlines this summer. With host of Italian Serie A clubs vying for his service, Alberto Aquilani may ends up at AC Milan at the end of the month.

Alberto Aquilani The Italy international midfielder was left out of the Reds’ 18-man squad for Saturday’s 2-0 win at Arsenal and appears to be surplus to requirements at Anfield.

Aquilani’s future has been the subject of intense speculation all summer after his season-long loan spell with Juventus ended.

They opted not to take up their option to buy him and then Aquilani turned down the chance to join Fiorentina on loan.

Aquilani, who cost Liverpool £17million from Roma in 2009, has made it clear if he leaves the Reds again it will be on a permanent basis.

And it now looks like AC Milan are ready to offer him a return to his homeland, although a fee with Liverpool has not yet been agreed.

   “I am close to joining Milan,” Aquilani said.

Aquilani looks set to finalise a loan move to Italian side AC Milan, with a view to the move becoming permanent for £5million next summer.

Should he stay or should he go?

I ran a public poll last week with the title: “Should Alberto Aquilani remained at Liverpool FC?” and accumulated 98 votes on it. Many still thinks Aquilani deserves another shot at Anfield.

Aquilani Yesterday match against Valerenga which ended in a 3-3 draw in Oslo and the Italian international played a major part in Liverpool coming from behind to drew level at 2-2 in the second half.

The press has linked him back to Italy, with Fiorentina and AC Milan waiting on the wing to sign the Liverpool playmaker on a season loan.

Kenny Dalglish has refused to rule the 27-year-old out of his plans on Merseyside, but with Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam joining Steven Gerrard, Lucas and Jay Spearing at Liverpool this summer, the exit door could be open for Aquilani.

Milan have been linked with a summer swoop for the Italy international. While Galliani insists there are no plans at the moment to try and bring in Aquilani, he admits the 27-year-old is the type of player they are targeting.

   “Currently we are not looking for him, but we could speak of it,”

“He's a midfielder with the characteristics that we are looking for so, like with other players in his role, he could be of interest.”

Liverpool midfielder set for Anfield exit after all

After months of speculation, Liverpool FC has finally agreed on the proposal given by Fiorentina for Alberto Aquilani.

According to the Echo, talks are ongoing after the Serie A outfit stepped up their pursuit of the Italy international.

Fiorentina want to take Aquilani on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent transfer.

Reports in Italy suggest they will pay the Reds a loan fee of £900,000 with the option to buy him for £9million next summer.

Aquilani's agent Franco Zavaglia said: “The agreement between Fiorentina and Alberto has not yet been reached.

“If we talk about an agreement, that was only reached between the two clubs, because Fiorentina have not come to any decision.”

Aquilani, who cost £17million from Roma in 2009, spent last season on loan at Juventus. They had the option to buy him for £14m at the end of the campaign but turned it down.

The 27-year-old is surplus to requirements at Anfield following the signings of midfield trio Jordan Henderson, Charlie Adam and Stewart Downing.

Liverpool midfielder denies Fiorentina link

The agent of Alberto Aquilani has brushed aside speculation linking the player with a move to Fiorentina this summer.

Reports in the Italian media claim the Viola are considering strengthening their squad by signing the Liverpool midfielder.

Alberto-Aquilani-Liverpool-Fiorentina-Transfer-Target However, Aquilani's agent, Franco Zavaglia, told Tuttomercatoweb.it: "His future for the time being is at Liverpool. The player will remain there.

"With Fiorentina there are no negotiations in place, I have not even been approached by them.

"They are just rumours."

Aquilani, who spent last season on loan at Juventus, wanted to remain in Italy but received no suitable offers despite making 33 league appearances for the Turin outfit.

The 26-year-old was a reported target of AC Milan and Napoli this summer but announced earlier this month he will play in Anfield next season.

Liverpool signed Aquilani from Roma in 2009 and he is under contract with the Reds until June 2014.
