Is he staying or is he going? The speculation surrounding Aquilani’s Liverpool career is continuing. Only recently did his agent say that Aquilani will be staying at Liverpool this season but reports coming out of Italy today suggest that Aquilani is going to join Fiorentina this week on a season long loan and he has already been reserved the number 10 jersey at the Italian club.
The Corriere Fiorentino newspaper is saying that Aquilani will join Fiorentina on loan after agreeing to take a pay cut. For Aquilani, the player would want to be at a club this season where he is going to be a regular starter so he can work his way into the Italian national team. At Liverpool, there may be no guarantees that he would get as much time on the field as he would hope to with the influx of midfielders to Anfield this summer.
It would be better for Liverpool to sell Aquilani out-right if he is not part of Dalglish’s plans than send him out on loan again.
I am sure more news about Aquilani’s future is going to be made clear to us in the next couple of days or maybe even earlier which some reports saying that a deal could be struck today (Sunday).
