Liverpool keen to farm out Alberto Aquilani on loan

Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani is set to be loaned out to a club back in his native Italy to guarantee first team football and preserve his value.

The 26-year-old joined the Reds from AS Roma in a £20 million move last summer but after spending much of the season overcoming injury, he failed to make a telling impact at Anfield.

He wasn't included in the Liverpool squad for Thursday's 1-0 Europa League win over Trabzonspor and Kop boss Roy Hodgson admitted a temporary move back home could be on the cards.

Hodgson told the club's website: "At the moment we are considering possibly loaning him to an Italian club, but nothing is sure about that yet so I don't have anything definite to report.

"I didn't want to use him (against Trabzonspor) just in case the loan goes through, because for Aquilani this year it's very important that he plays regular football, every week, as the number one man on the teamsheet.

"I can't promise him that here so if a loan move to Italy could help him in that respect it might be good for all parties.

"It would certainly be what he needs, it would certainly protect the value of the player and when he does return to Liverpool no doubt we will see the Aquilani that we signed before he came here injured last year."
