Milan reveal Aquilani interest
Monday 22 August 2011
AC Milan are hopeful of landing Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani.
The Italy international spent last season on loan at Juventus before returning to Anfield earlier this summer.
Milan are looking to bolster their midfield line after failing to lure Fiorentina's Riccardo Montolivo to the San Siro.
"Aquilani is a great player," AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi told Gazzetta dello Sport.
"We are discussing the possibility with (AC Milan administrator Adriano) Galliani.
"I spoke to (AC Milan coach Massimiliano) Allegri and we will see what happens."
Aquilani has been strongly linked with a move back to Serie A in recent months with Fiorentina also reportedly keen to acquire the midfielder's services.
The 27-year-old is under contract with Liverpool until June 2014.
Aquilani's agent Franco Zavaglia was seen entering Milan's headquarters in Via Turati this morning and is holding talks with Milan executives over the possible transfer, according to reports in Italy.
Milan begin their Serie A title defence at Cagliari on Saturday.
