Alberto Aquilani's agent insists only a huge bid would tempt Liverpool to sell the midfielder.

'Heavy offer' the only way midfielder will leave

Alberto Aquilani's agent believes only a huge bid would tempt Liverpool to sell the midfielder. Franco Zavaglia has reiterated the creative Italian has no desire to return to his native land this summer despite ongoing speculation the Reds are prepared to offload the player they paid £20million for last year. The latest rumour has suggested Juventus are back in the hunt the 25-year-old after naming Luigi Del Neri as their new manager and the Turin giants are said to be prepared to offer Brazilian midfielder Felipe Melo as part of a swap deal. But Zavaglia has dismissed his client's latest link with a Serie A comeback and expects the former Roma man to be plying his trade at Anfield next season. He told Tuttomercatoweb: "For now Alberto was not required and I think it is not easy to bring him to Juventus. "In this season, when he did not have ankle problems, he has always played and never had any problems, either with Benitez or with Liverpool. "So they won't part with Aquilani unless they receive very heavy offers".
