Fiorentina are still being linked with Alberto Aquilani, but it looks like the midfielder will be playing for Liverpool in the new campaign.
"There is little chance of seeing Alberto in the Italian championship at this moment in time," agent Franco Zavaglia noted.
"Right now, I really do think that Aquilani will be wearing the Liverpool shirt next season."
The Italian international has returned to Anfield after Italian giants Juventus opted against buying him outright.
The former Roma player spent last season on loan in Turin, but the acquisition of Andrea Pirlo by La Vecchia Signora saw Juve hand him back.
Milan and Sunderland had previously been paired with a possible swoop, but the Viola have been linked heavily over the last few days.
