Marotta confident of cut-price Liverpool deal

Published Add your comment

Juventus remain confident of signing Alberto Aquilani permanently this summer, despite balking at the apparent transfer fee set by Liverpool.

A £13.5 million price tag is thought to have been placed on the head of the Liverpool loanee, a figure that the Old Lady are thought to be unwilling to pay.

However, General Manager Giuseppe Marotta is confident a deal can be reached with the Reds, and is searching for additional talks with the Merseysiders in an effort to come to an agreement of a permanent deal, according to Italian publication Leggo.

Liverpool spent €20 million in bringing the player to Anfield in the summer of 2009, but the Italian international struggled to settle on Merseyside and struggled to secure a place in the first team after a string of minor injuries.


After a year with the Merseysiders, Juventus took the player to the Stadio Olimpico on a season long loan and are keen to extend the deal beyond it's current agreement.

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is keen to recuperate some of the cash spent by Rafa Benitez on the 26-year-old, and would instantly look to reinvest in the summer on strengthening his squad.

The Scot is thought to have identified a number of positions, including midfield, where he would like to make additions, and Liverpool look set to be busy come the end of the season.
