Juventus midfielder Alberto Aquilani is hopeful he will remain at the club beyond the summer.

The Italian playmaker is on loan at the Turin giants until the end of the season from Liverpool, but Juve have an option to buy him should they wish to do so.

"There is a price fixed for Juve to acquire me at the end of the season," Aquilani said to Corriere dello Sport. "The club has to evaluate the situation but I would like to stay."

He added: "It is thanks to the Bianconeri club that I have returned to the national team."

 

Aquilani joined Liverpool in the summer of 2009 for a reported £20million, but failed to make an appearance for the club until November due to injury.

The 26-year-old returned to Italy after just one year in the Premier League.

Aquilani has scored twice and made 27 league appearances for the Turin giants this season.

Juve are seventh in Serie A, eight points behind Udinese, who hold the last Champions League qualifying spot with seven games remaining.
