It must be a really frustrating time for Alberto Aquilani right now. It would be great to hear what he is thinking himself because all along we have been hearing from his agent Franco Zavaglia. So it is no surprise that his agent has come out and said that Aquilani rejected a loan move back to Italy with Fiorentina as he wants a permanent move back to his home country.

“Alberto has played nearly every pre-season friendly at Liverpool,” Zavaglia told Radio Sportiva. “He’s a major player, who was in the national team even before the injury.

“We’ll wait a little to see whether he will remain at Liverpool or whether a team from Italy will take him. Now he has three more years of the contract and if he stays in England he will have plenty of satisfaction.
“The offer of a loan from Fiorentina was not right. We are looking for a permanent solution that fits all.”

I for one am hoping that no deal comes through for Aquilani to return to Italy this summer as I am looking forward to seeing him play for Liverpool this season. With Dalglish’s pass and move style of play, this could bring out the best in Aquilani.
