Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish is reportedly excited at the prospect of cashing in on Alberto Aquilani's sale to Juventus, and will be using the €16 million to buy new stars for the history rich club.
Today Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta told Gazzetta dello Sport that the Italian giants believe they can come to an agreement with Liverpool on a fee for the Italian international.
"We have a good rapport with Liverpool and we think we can reach an understanding," Marotta said.
"Alberto has proved to be an important player and we knew him already from his time at Roma.
"We have an option to buy his contract which is quite high for us, but we will soon try to find a solution with Liverpool."
£35 million Liverpool striker Andy Carroll recently revealed that the Anfield club will be looking to buy big stars in the summer, telling the official Liverpool website, "There are massive names here, it's a massive club and I don't see why we can't attract big names.”
Director of Football Damien Comolli also reiterated Carroll’s sentiments, insisting that despite January signings costing in excess of £50 million, there would be more money to sign players in the summer.
"There will be movement, that's for sure,” Comolli said.
"We are very attractive for a lot of players because of what we did in January and a game like that [the 3-1 defeat of Manchester United] is fantastic publicity for us around the world.
“Since the day after I was getting phone calls from agents telling me that their player would love to come and that we are going to compete next year if we get it right.”
With a figure close to pay €16 million [£13.9m] reported by Aquilani’s agent on the star’s worth, Liverpool will no doubt have a decent amount of extra cash to spend on players come summer.
