Aquilani calls Fiorentina and Roma

Alberto Aquilani's agent insists he will only accept a permanent transfer to Fiorentina and blasted Roma. “They would've been considered.”

The midfielder spent last season on loan at Juventus and is not part of Liverpool's plans.

“Alberto has given the all-clear to join Fiorentina, but he doesn't want to find himself in the same position of having to reconsider his position next season,” agent Franco Zavaglia told Rete Sport.

Other options for a return to Serie A included Milan and Napoli, but not hometown club Roma.

“It has to be said Roma never even bothered to call Aquilani. We didn't expect them to, but they certainly would've been considered.

“At the moment he is a Liverpool player, seeing as yesterday he played in a friendly against Galatasaray and did well.”
