Alberto Aquilani is close to completing a permanent move from Liverpool to AC Milan, according to the agent of the Italian midfielder.

The 27-year-old is on a season-long loan at the San Siro, but it is written into the terms of the deal that Milan have to make the move permanent if he makes 25 appearances this season.

And, having already played 20 times for the Serie A leaders this season, Aquilani's agent Franco Zavaglia expects a deal to be finalised in the not too distant future.

"It's all written in the contract," he told

"Once Alberto has made 25 appearances [he has already made 20] for the Rossoneri, he will be a Milan player in all respects."

Aquilani signed for Liverpool for £20 million from Roma in the summer of 2009, but failed to make an impact of not during his first season at Anfield.

Roy Hodgson took the decision to loan the Italy international out to Juventus last term, with the intention of bringing Aquilani back to Merseyside the following summer.

This did transpire, albeit with Kenny Dalglish at the helm, but after the acquisitions of Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam, Aquilani was once again loaned out.

And, it would appear, there will be no move back to Liverpool for the former Roma star on this occasion.
