Liverpool may just be set to offset the amount they spent on signing Jordan Henderson from Sunderland with Alberto Aquilani headed to Sunderland for £14million according to Football Italia.

This will be great news for many Liverpool fans who feel that Aquilani will not cut it at Anfield. The Italian midfielder spent a season on loan at Juventus and it was thought that the Italian club would sign him on a permanent basis but that was not to be. Aquilani is now back at Liverpool and is currently training with the squad although it is thought Liverpool want to offload him this summer in order to raise some transfer funds and to get him of the wage bill.

Sunderland have lots of cash following the sale of Henderson, ironically to Liverpool and they still have money from the Darren Bent sale. If Liverpool are able to get £14million for Aquilani that would signal a good business move as we virtually would have made our money back from signing Henderson and we would not have made such a huge loss from the reported £17million we bought Aquilani for from Roma.

If Aquilani is sold this summer then I do not think Liverpool should sell Raul Meireles who is the subject of a proposed move to Italy this summer.
