After being ditched by AC Milan, Alberto Aquilani is still on the lookout for a club to end his Liverpool misery, with Turkish outfit Fenerbahce the latest club considering a move for the out-of-favour midfielder.
This is not the first time that Fenerbahce have considered bringing the Italian to the Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium, but on previous occasions they have been put off by Liverpool’s valuation of the 28-year old.
However, with Emre Belozoglu leaving for Atletico Madrid over the summer, their interest in Aquilani has increased, with club manager Aykut Kocaman hoping to use Liverpool’s desperation to get Aquilani off their wages to get the central midfielder for a cheap price.
The Italian was loaned out to Juventus and AC Milan over the previous two seasons by the Reds after failing to adapt to the English style of play, with Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri showing an interest in extending Aquilani’s loan deal for a further year.
Liverpool however want some returns on the £17 million they paid for Aquilani in 2009, and are not interested in loaning the midfielder out again.
New Reds manager Brendan Rodgers did suggest last month that he could give Aquilani another shot at Anfield, but the Merseyside club are expected to let him leave if an interested club offers £6 million for the former AS Roma star.
