The agent of Alberto Aquilani has put the brakes on his supposed move to Fiorentina. "We haven't agreed personal terms."
Stories have been gathering pace over the last 24 hours that the player's transfer from Liverpool to Florence was almost complete.
However, speaking with La Gazzetta dello Sport, Franco Zavaglia has cooled the speculation.
"An agreement between Fiorentina and Aquilani still hasn't been reached," stated the representative.
"If people are talking of a deal then that may have been only finalised between the two clubs.
"Fiorentina haven't come to a decision with regard to us."
The major stumbling block is agreeing a salary with the Italian international midfielder.
He currently earns €3.6m a season after tax, that's €1.6m more than the salary cap imposed by the Viola.
Talks are set to continue.
