Alberto Aquilani’s future remains in the balance, as there are reports Liverpool will renew his loan to Milan at a cheaper rate.
The midfielder spent this season at San Siro with an option to buy out permanently if he managed a certain number of appearances.
As he did not hit that mark, the Italian international has returned to Anfield and is eager to get straight back into Serie A.
It has been reported that Aquilani is in negotiations to terminate his contract two years early at a cost to Liverpool of €3.5m.
However, Sky Sport Italia suggest there is another option on the table that will see Liverpool renew the one-year loan to Milan.
Liverpool would also pay half of his wages for the campaign and put in place another clause making the permanent move obligatory if he hits the target of appearances.
The buy-out clause would be a mere €1m compared to the €7m discussed a year ago.
Former Roma star Aquilani joined Liverpool in 2009 for £17m.
