Alberto Aquilani may get his wish of staying in Serie A after all, as Fiorentina are tracking the Liverpool man.
The midfielder spent last season on loan at Juventus and made it clear he wanted to remain in Italy, but the Bianconeri did not take up their option to make the move permanent.
Milan, Inter and Roma were also mentioned, but with no clubs willing to buy, he looked to be heading back to Anfield.
However, according to the latest reports in Italy, now Fiorentina have come forward with an offer for Aquilani.
Sky Sport Italia maintain he is the ideal replacement for Riccardo Montolivo, who is looking for a new club after rejecting a contract extension.
Aquilani would again join on loan with an option to buy at the end of the season.
