Alberto Aquilani is at the moment beyond Fiorentina's reach, “but we can whittle things down,” said his agent.
The midfielder has returned to Liverpool after Juventus did not take up their option on his year-long loan.
He's been linked with a return to Serie A at the Stadio Artemio Franchi, but even on loan his wages are beyond the Viola's capabilities.
“Anything could happen, so never say never,” agent Franco Zavaglia told the Corriere Fiorentino newspaper.
“Alberto has an important contract and Fiorentina can only move within certain parameters.
“I don't know if a deal can be done, but with time we can whittle things down.”
