The agent of Alberto Aquilani believes his client's future will be decided next week.

The Italian midfielder has spent this season on loan at Juventus from Liverpool, but the Turin giants failed to exercise their first buy-out option to sign the 26-year-old on a permanent basis, which expired last weekend.

"The percentage that Aquilani will remain at Juve is above 50%," said Aquilani's agent Franco Zavaglia to Gazzetta dello Sport.

"He has three years left on his contract with Liverpool. I believe that in a couple of days the two clubs will reach an agreement."

Juve, who have failed to qualify for European football next season after finishing seventh in Serie A, had refused to pay the asking price of £16m demanded by the Reds for the player's permanent signature.


However, Zavaglia is confident an agreement will be reached.

"Juve should have paid 16m for the buy-out clause but I don't think there will be any problems regarding the financial aspects," said Zavaglia.

"I believe within the next week everything will be resolved."

Liverpool signed Aquilani for a reported fee of £20million from Roma in 2009.
