The agent of Liverpool midfielder Alberto has cooled talk of his client making an Anfield exit this summer, despite fervent speculation surrounding his future.
Aquilani, who enjoyed a successful spell on loan at Juventus last term, had hoped to secure a permanent move to Turin but the two clubs were unable to negotiate a deal and the player instead returned back to his parent club.
There has since been speculation that a number of other Serie A clubs, including Fiorentina, have been monitoring the Italian’s situation with a view to making a move. But Aquilani’s agent insists the player is content with life at Liverpool and has all the attributes to be a success in the English top flight.
“Alberto overcame his ankle problem, coming back into the national team and he has the characteristics to do good things in the Premier League too,” Franco Zavaglia told Radio Mana Mana.
“He is at a summer camp training with Liverpool, playing positively in all games of their summer tour.”
Although this is hardly a definitive statement from Zavaglia, all signs continue to point to an Anfield stay for Aquilani. And although the club are currently well stocked in this position, there are unlikely to be too many complaints if the club were to retain such a quality player.
