Aquilani move now 50-50

Alberto Aquilani's hopes of a return to Serie A with Fiorentina are in the balance with the player insisting on a permanent move.

It was thought Aquilani would sign for the Viola on loan for the 2011-12 campaign, just as he did last term with Juventus. But Aquilani does not want to be put in the same situation in 12 months' time and is hankering for a full deal.

Aquilani, 27, made just nine Premier League starts for Liverpool in his debut season due to injury before the club moved the £20 million signing off the wage bill.

Despite receiving words of praise from Principal Owner John W Henry on Twitter recently, Aquilani is surplus to manager Kenny Dalglish's requirements as he looks to reshape the squad further.

Aquilani's agent, Franco Zavaglia, told Sportitalia: "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.

"The player wants to come to Italy on a definite 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% chance that my client will transfer to Florence. Last year in August there was 'magic', let's see if this year will be the same, there is still time."
