Aquilani aims to make Liverpool mark

Published Add your comment

Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani is happy to stay at Anfield this summer, and is aiming to make a big impression on the pitch this season.

The Italian international, who scored the winner for his country against Spain last night, has been constantly linked with a move back to Serie 'A' this summer after a successful loan at Juventus last term.

After spending big on midfielders this summer, the door appeared to be closing on Aquilani with the Reds, but the attacking midfielder has enjoyed a successful pre-season and now appears to be in Kenny Dalglish's plans.

I'd love to make my mark at Liverpool. The transfer market is open until August 31, so we'll see what happens," said Aquilani.

"All I can say is that there has been a lot of talk. Obviously I would take the offer of a permanent move into consideration with Liverpool.


"I wasn't following the Italian media much over the summer, but whatever happens I am at a great club like Liverpool."

The comments come just a day after Aquilani's agent confirmed it was 'not a problem' if his client stayed on Merseyside.

After failing to make a big impression following his move from Roma in 2009, the Liverpool faithful will be hoping Aquilani can continue his fine form this summer into the coming campaign, which starts with the visit of Sunderland on Sunday.

"Alberto has played almost every pre-season friendly with Liverpool," Franco Zavaglia told Italian radio station Radio Sportiva.

"He's a major player, who was in the Italian national team even before his injury. We will have to see if he remains at Liverpool or whether there will be a suitor from Italy.

"He has three more years left on his contract and if he has to remain at Liverpool that will not be a problem."
