It seems like the future of Alberto Aquilani has taken another new twist today. The Italian midfielder has come out and said that he is close to completing a move back to Italy with AC Milan.

“I am close to joining Milan,” Aquilani told Gazzetta dello Sport.

We are not sure yet if this would be a loan move or a permanent move. I would prefer it to be a permanent deal if we are going to let the player go so that we can use the cash from his transfer to buy other players.

We have not seen Aquilani feature for the Reds in the first two games of the Premier league season despite his great displays for us in pre-season. He is a player I would have liked to stay and we see more of this season but if he wants to leave and a deal is close as he suggests then I wish him the best of luck.
