Reports out of Italy are linking Sunderland with a sensational move for Liverpool flop Alberto Aquilani.
Aquilani has only just returned to Anfield after a loan period in Italy with Juventus and while it was thought that a permanent deal was in the pipeline, nothing materialised. Aquilani has since returned to Anfield, however that has not stopped the speculation.
Sunderland have been a little busy recently and their spending spree does not look like it is stopping any time soon and the Black Cats are reportedly confident of springing a surprise and securing Aquilani’s signature.
Liverpool themselves have just been spending and it may be time to do some balancing of the books, it is not as if Aquilani is a critical component of Kenny Dalglish’s plans at Liverpool and it does remain the the most favoured option by all parties concerned and that is the sale of Aquilani.
