The latest news coming out of the Aquilani camp, which is firmly lead by his agent, Franco Zavaglia, is that Aquilani is not part of Dalglish’s technical plans and the midfielder could be set for a move to AC Milan in the next couple of days for £8.7million.
Zavaglia spoke about the potential of a deal being struck to take Aquilani to AC Milan, “When you speak of such a negotiation, there is always an element of truth,” he told ilsussidiario.net.
“Galliani is now in China for the Italian Super Cup, but I expect to talk to him when he comes back to Milan.
“I think an agreement could be reached for a figure around €10million.”
He added: “Aquilani is still tied to a three-year contract with Liverpool and before his eventual departure we will talk with the leadership of Liverpool.
“It seems clear to me that the player doesn’t fall into the technical plans of the coach, so the suggestion of his departure is concrete.”
