The future of Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani remains up in the air after his agent admitted there had been no progress towards finding a new club for his client.

Aquilani spent last season on loan at Juventus and, although impressing in Serie A, the Bianconeri were unwilling to pay the previously agreed price of €16M for his services. Even Liverpool’s late recent decision to drop the Italian’s asking price as not sparked renewed interest from Turin.

And with little sign that either AC Milan or Roma, two destinations mooted as a possibility, are ready to move for the Italy star, the player’s future is uncertain.

"Everything has stopped", explained Aquilani’s agent Franco Zavaglia to Sportitalia.

"The negotiations are on standby, nothing has changed."

With Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish planning for a future without Aquilani, his return to Anfield could complicate matters. And although an extra top quality option would be welcomed, Dalglish has already added to the club’s midfield by signing Jordan Henderson from Sunderland; and Charlie Adam is expected to arrive from Blackpool.
