Aquilani returns to Liverpool

By Tariq Saleh

Italian midefielder Alberto Aquilani has returned to Liverpool after his season long loan spell at Juventus ended.

The Italians had the option to make his move permanent but were unwilling to meet Liverpool’s demands. Aquilani has three years remaining on his Liverpool contract but has been linked with a move to AC Milan in recent weeks.

If the Italian does remain at Anfield he will have to compete for a central midfield position with Steven Gerrard, Raul Meireles, Lucas, Jay Spearing and incoming new signing Jordan Henderson.
