Alberto Aquilani transfer in the balance says agent
Thursday 28 July 2011
Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani has a 50 per cent chance of joining Fiorentina, according to his agent.
Reports suggested a deal to move to the Serie A club had fallen through as the 27-year-old wanted a permanent move as opposed to another loan spell like the one he had with Juventus last season.
"As Alberto doesn't yet fall in the plans of Liverpool, we want to find a solution so that next year the current situation will not reoccur again," Aquilani's agent Franco Zavaglia told Sportitalia.
"The player wants to come to Italy on a permanent transfer.
"I met [Fiorentina's sporting director, Pantaleo] Corvino, and the club must think about it. It's a difficult deal but let's see.
"There is a 50 per cent chance that my client will transfer to Florence.
"Last year, in August, there was 'magic' [Aquilani's loan deal to Juventus], let's see if this year will be the same, there is still time."
