Aquilani agent at Milan HQ

Alberto Aquilani's agent has begun talks with Milan after owner Silvio Berlusconi approved the proposed swoop.

The Rossoneri chief was questioned about the Liverpool player last night and he seemed to OK an approach.

"Aquilani is an interesting player," the Italian Prime Minister noted while attending the club's 2-1 win over Juventus.

Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri also seems in favour of bringing in the man who spent last season on loan at Juventus.

"Aquilani is a player with great quality," the former Cagliari boss noted. "He'd replace Andrea Pirlo in the squad."

Pirlo left Milan in the summer for Juventus.

Franco Zavaglia, Aquilani's representative, arrived at the club's Via Turati headquarters this morning for negotiations.

It's unclear whether the player will be signed outright or if he'll be taken on loan with the option to buy next summer.
