AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi has confirmed the Italian club are in talks with Liverpool over the signing of midfielder Alberto Aquilani.
Aquilani, 27, spent last season on loan at Juventus, where he enjoyed a revival after a torrid first year with Liverpool, but the clubs were unable to agree a fee and he spent pre-season back on Merseyside.
Though manager Kenny Dalglish has said on numerous occasions that he would be happy to include Aquilani in his squad for the coming season, Liverpool have held negotiations with Juve, Fiorentina and now Milan over his sale.
Milan owner Berlusconi said: "We are negotiating for Aquilani. "I like him a lot - he's an interesting player. I've spoken about this with [vice-president Adriano] Galliani and [Massimiliano] Allegri. We will see what happens."
The player's agent, Franco Zavaglia, told Ilsussidiario.net: "The involved parties are working on this case, and between Wednesday and Thursday, everything will be decided."
Aquilani has not featured in a competitive game for Liverpool under Dalglish.
