AC Milan have reportedly joined Fiorentina in the race for Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani after the Italian's loan move to Fiorentina fell through mid-week. 

"Aquilani our 'Mister X'? Well, that could happen," said Adriano Galliani, the Milan vice president, replying to a question regarding their interest in the Italian. 

Galliani went on to reveal that they would wait until later in the transfer window to wrap-up deals in order to get a bargain. 

Aquilani arrived on the Merseyside back in 2009 for a fee of £17 million, only to be loaned out to Juventus a season later after constant injury problems. But when fit, Aquilani has shown a huge amount of creative talent and with work and could become one of the world’s finest midfielders if he can overcome his fitness issues.

And as I've said before, in a Liverpool squad that already includes a huge amount of young midfield talent, the 27-year-old will find it tough to get a look in if he does indeed choose to stay at the Reds. And with this in mind, it could be a wise move for both the club and player to look for a permanent transfer so Aquilani can develop his playing at a club where he will get game time and Liverpool can add a few million pounds to their transfer kitty.
