Aquilani agent remains hopeful

Milan are hoping to land the Italy international as they look to

bolster their midfield line before the start of the season. “I will

remain here, in Liverpool, until I complete the transfer in favour

of AC Milan,” said Aquilani’s agent Franco Zavaglia to Gazzetta.it.

“Aquilani has chosen and he wants AC Milan. We hope an agreement

will be reached very soon.” Aquilani, who spent last season on loan

at Juventus before returning to Anfield earlier this summer, is

under contract with Liverpool until June 2014. AC Milan begin their

Serie A title defence at Cagliari on Saturday.
