Alberto Aquilani’s agent has set a 'decision deadline' for Liverpool to make a move on selling the star to his current on loan club Juventus, the Daily Post reports.
Franco Zavaglia insists that a deal between Liverpool and the Italian giants is just days away from being finalised.
“The percentage that Aquilani will remain at Juve is above 50%,” Zavaglia said.
“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.”
There were reportedly problems between Liverpool and the Old Lady in regards to the £16 million buy out clause in Aquilani’s contract, with the fee believed by his on loan club to be too high.
“Juve should have paid 16m for the buy-out clause but I don’t think there will be any problems regarding the financial aspects,” Zavaglia said.
“I believe within the next week everything will be resolved.”
A £16 million fee for Aquilani would no doubt please Kenny Dalglish, after the playmaker was purchased for £20 million from Roma three years ago.
With a minimal loss of value on the player, Liverpool will be hoping that they can recoup a large sum of their money to spend in the summer transfer period.
