Liverpool To Send Alberto Aquilani Back To Italy

Interesting news are out and it has been reported that Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani is set to be loaned out to a club back in his native Italy.

The Italian international midfielder has struggled to make an impact at Anfield since his £20million arrival from Roma last summer.

The 26-year-old midfielder was signed by former Reds manager Rafael Benitez as a replacement for the influential Xabi Alonso who left the club for Spanish giants Real Madrid.

However the player’s career at Liverpool failed to take off as planned as his first season at Merseyside was hampered by injuries.

Aquilani was not included in Liverpool’s squad for the Europa League play-off against Trabzonspor and discussions are under way over a possible move.

Current boss Roy Hodgson said: “At the moment we are considering possibly loaning him to an Italian club but nothing is sure about that yet so I don’t have anything definite to report.

“I didn’t want to use him (against Trabzonspor) just in case the loan goes through because for Aquilani this year it’s very important he plays regular football, every week, as the number one man on the teamsheet. I can’t promise him that here so if a loan move to Italy could help him in that respect it might be good for all parties.”
