Many Liverpool fans, and the players I am sure, thought that we would never see Alberto Aquilani again playing for Liverpool after he left to go spend last season on loan at Juventus. He played very well there and it looked certain that Juventus would sign him on a permanent deal but that did not happen and now Aquilani is back at Liverpool and could be staying on past this summer according to his agent.

“Alberto’s thoughts were to stay in Italy, but this was not possible,” Zavaglia told Radio Sportiva.

“I don’t know if there is a chance to go back to Italy during this transfer window, it’s a shame our players leave Italian football.

“Liverpool are an important team and I think he can win the Premier League. The objective [at Anfield] is Champions League football.”

Aquilani admitted that he would want to stay in Italy but so far no one has come in with an offer for him in Italy that meets our valuation of him. I am sure there are many clubs in the Serie A who want Aquilani but we will not sell him on the cheap especially since we spent so much money on signing him. I see FSG are playing a critical part in this Aquilani saga as they want to try balance the books as best as they can with this Aquilani deal.

At the end of the day if no one wants to buy Aquilani for the fee Liverpool want for him, he will remain a Liverpool player and Dalglish has said that he will consider the Italian in his plans for the coming season.
