Juventus have so far offered Liverpool just £6m to sign Alberto Aquilani outright, a report in the Liverpool Echo claims.
Aquilani joined Juventus on loan last summer from Anfield, with the option for the Turin giants to buy him outright for £14m.
However, that option expired on May 15 and Liverpool subsequently rejected Juve's unattractive cut-price offer for him.
The Premiership side signed the Roman from Roma in the summer of 2009 for a massive £17.9m.
They have until the end of June to pay Roma the final £4.4m instalment for the Azzurri international.
Aquilani's agent continues to insist that Juventus and Liverpool will eventually reach an agreement over his client.
