Alberto Aquilani would like to stay in Italy and keep playing for Juventus, according to his agent Franco Zavaglia.
The 26-year-old midfielder is currently on loan from Liverpool until the end of the season.
Juventus have an option to buy for €16m, but the club are balking at the price and want to negotiate a discount.
"I don't know if Juventus have spoken with Liverpool," said Zavaglia.
"The player's desire is clear. He would like to stay in Italy.
"If he goes back to England, he won't make himself ill over it."
