AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani admits he is interested in bringing Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani back to Italy.

The 27-year-old has struggled to settle at Anfield since his £17million move from Roma two years ago because of injury.

The Italy international  spent last season on-loan at Juventus and was keen on a permanent deal but the Old Lady did not match Liverpool’s valuation.

Fiorentina also wanted to take him on-loan but a deal collapsed at the final minute leaving Aquilani likely to start the season on Merseyside.

But Milan need a replacement for Andrea Pirlo and Galliani has revealed Aquilani is his choice to be that player.

“He’s a midfielder who has the characteristics we’re looking for so he could be of interest,” he told Gazzetta Dello Sport.

Galliani also ruled out moves for Real Madrid’s Kaka, a former San Siro favourite, and Manchester City’s ex-Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli.

“Kaka’s wage is impossible for an Italian club due to the tax system,” he said.

As for Balotelli, Galliani added: “If someone comes in it will be a left central midfielder, not a striker.”
