Alberto Aquilani's agent has said the midfielder is likely to join Juventus from Liverpool permanently in the summer. The Italian midfielder has been on loan at Juventus this season and Franco Zavaglia, his representative, said yesterday that the two clubs have an agreement for a June move.

"Juve has the priority and I don't think they will let him escape," Zavaglia told Italian radio yesterday. "On 30 June Juventus will be able to buy Aquilani and they should act now.

"They could sign him by making three to four delayed payments, a system which was established last summer. The agreement between Liverpool and Juventus is already there, it all depends on the willingness of Juventus. I think Aquilani will stay at Juventus and there will not be any obstacles."
