Spending only one season abroad, Liverpool’s midfielder Alberto Aquilani reportedly is set to return to Italy this upcoming season especially after he was being left out from the Pool’s squad in recent matches.
“At the moment we are considering possibly loaning him to an Italian club, but nothing is sure about that yet so I don’t have anything definite to report,” Hodgson said.
The former Fulham manager also said that the main reason he decide to loan out Aquilani is because the veteran coach can’t promised him a starting spot in the squad this season. The fact that this could be a very determining season for the 26-years-old midfielder career as he finally can start a season in a fit condition, getting a good playing time in other club would definitely be something good for him.
”I didn’t want to use him (against Trabzonspor) just in case the loan goes through, because for Aquilani this year it’s very important that he plays regular football, every week, as the number one man on the teamsheet,” Hodgson explain to the press. “I can’t promise him that here so if a loan move to Italy could help him in that respect it might be good for all parties.”
According to the latest rumors, Juventus could be the destination for the former Roma star as the Italian press seems certain that the deal is currently going on and would be revealed soon. Should this report turns out to be true than it would definitely a great deal made by the Bianconeri as despite his injury problems, Aquilani is still considered as one of the most talented Italian midfielder around.
The 26-years-old is always being considered as an exciting talent in Italy and Europe, however his first season with Liverpool didn’t turn out well as he his injury problems forced him to be sidelined for months. The Italian international only managed 18 appearances in the premiership with only nine starts and only scoring one goal for the Reds.
