Liverpool star expresses desire for Serie A

Published Add your comment

Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani has revealed he wants to stay at Serie A outfit Juventus after spending a successful season there on loan.

“There is a price fixed for Juve to acquire me at the end of the season,” Aquilani told reporters.

“The club has to evaluate the situation but I would like to stay.

“It is thanks to the Bianconeri club that I have returned to the national team.”


 

Aquilani was purchased by Liverpool in 2009 for a reported sum of €20 million. While then-Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez held a lot of hope for Aquilani, when Benitez left and Roy Hodgson come in, Aquilani had trouble getting starts at the Kop.

Liverpool have reportedly set a €16 million [£13.9m] price on the star, which Juventus are currently unwilling to pay.

Aquilani’s agent, Franco Zavala, recently told Italian radio station Mana Mana he believed Juventus would eventually give Liverpool what they're demanding for the star.

"[Aquilani] will stay at Juventus," he said. "I believe there are no obstacles in this regard. Aquilani is not a player to be put into question.”

"Juventus has a right of first refusal."
