Aquilani heading to AC Milan

Midfielder Alberto Aquilani looks set to finalise a loan move to Italian side AC Milan this week, with a view to the move becoming permanent for £5m next summer.

Aquilani, 27, joined Liverpool in 2009 as a replacement for Xabi Alonso suffered an injury plagued first campaign and was loaned to Juventus last season.

The Nezazzuri chose not to take up the option to buy the player, but Aquilani has continually been linked with a return to Serie A, with Fiorentina looking favourites earlier in the summer.

After a move to Fiorentina broke down, it looked possible he would remain at Anfield, especially after impressing in pre-season and earning praise from club owner John W. Henry. But he hasn’t featured in the squads for the opening two games against Sunderand and Arsenal, signaling Kenny Dalglish sees now future for him at LFC.

“The involved parties are working on this case, and between Wednesday and Thursday, everything will be decided,” Aquilani’s agent, Franco Zavaglia, told

Meanwhile, two more departures could be imminent, with reports suggesting David Ngog is on the verge of a £4m move to Bolton, and Wolfsburg being linked with defender Sotirios Kyrgiakos.
