Anfield midfielder wanted by San Siro giants.
AC Milan are reportedly ready to meet Liverpool’s asking price for want-away star Alberto Aquilani according to Italian reports. The 26 year old has been on a season long loan spell at Juventus but the Turin outfit are unwilling to meet the player’s valuation which has let in the San Siro side who appear more than willing to splash the cash on the in form midfielder.
Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish was apparently more than happy to welcome Alberto Aquilani back to Anfield but the former Roma man was keen to remain in Italy after a consistent season in Serie A helped to force him back into the international set-up.
Rafa Benitez purchased Aquilani for a fee of £20m, with significant portions of that fee dependent on meeting appearance goals that were not met, and a move back to Italy may be best for all parties. The return of Dalglish has led to a vast improvement from the likes of Lucas, Raul Meireles and Dirk Kuyt and this in turn has meant that Dalglish could afford to cash in on the Italian international.
Aquilani is thought to have been keen on making his temporary move to Juventus a permanent one but will surely be very interested in a move to AC Milan, who are closing in on their first Serie A title in seven years. Liverpool will then in turn look to use funds made from the sale to continue their squad re-building having already brought in the likes of Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll in January.
