It’s reported Alberto Aquilani could secure his move to Fiorentina on Tuesday, sending the Liverpool midfielder back to Serie A.
Aquilani has been in talks with the Viola for some time and is eager to stay in Italy after Juventus did not take up their option to make a loan move permanent.
According to the latest reports from the Italian media, Tuesday will see a decisive meeting between Fiorentina and Liverpool.
He is expected to arrive on loan with an option to buy for €11m at the end of the season.
The major sticking point remains the contract, as Fiorentina would need Aquilani to cut at least €1m off his salary.
The former Roma man currently earns €3m per season, which is far beyond the average salary at the Stadio Franchi.
