Liverpool’s Italian midfielder Alberto Aquilani, currently on loan to Juventus, is reportedly considering a shock move to Russian outfit Zenit St. Petersburg after Juventus turned down Liverpool’s asking price of €16.5 million.

Zenit St Peterburg manager Luciano Spalletti has worked with Aquilani before, when both were at Roma in 2005-2009. Aquilani then moved to Liverpool in 2009. The manager is hoping he can coax the 26 year old to a move across Europe.


St Petersburg are currently the defending champions in the Russian Premier League, and would be able to offer Aquilani possible Champions League qualification should he choose to head from Liverpool to the side.

The top flight Russian side would also easily be able to raise the money that Liverpool has demanded for Aquilani’s services, with backing from international conglomerate Gazprom.
