Another 48 hours for Aquilani

Juventus will make a decision on the future of Liverpool-owned Alberto Aquilani in the next 48 hours.

"Juventus have first refusal on the player," agent Franco Zavaglia told Radio Radio on Saturday morning.

"They have made a commitment with me and with Liverpool. We will have to wait for the next two days and then we will see what decision to make."

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, according to the Liverpool Echo, the Premiership club subsequently rejected Juve's unattractive cut-price offer of just £6m for him.

Liverpool signed the former Roma player, who appeared for Italy in their 3-0 over Estonia last night, for almost £18m in the summer of 2009.

It's understood that the Old Lady are now assessing whether to make a new bid for the player or to let him go.

Aquilani has been linked with other clubs, but Zavaglia admitted that Juve were the focus for now.

"I know nothing of Milan's interest," he continued. "Let's wait for these next two days and then we'll see what happens."
