Fiorentina are on the verge of signing midfielder Alberto Aquilani from Liverpool, The People understands.
The English newspaper claims the Serie A side have already agreed a £7 million fee with the Reds and all that’s left is for them to agree personal terms with the player.
New Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers admitted earlier this week that he was prepared to give the Italian a chance to impress, but it appears he has now changed his mind.
The highly rated technician is hoping to lure Swansea’s Joe Allen to Anfield, and, therefore, wants to get rid of Alberto Aquilani.
The 28-year-old, who was pretty impressive in pre-season games, will reportedly jump at the opportunity to return to Serie A following several difficult years in English Premier League.
The Italian international spent last season on loan at Milan, but the Rossoneri opted against making the deal permanent at the end of the season.
