Alberto Aquilani dimishes rumors about leaving Fiorentina

Former Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani has rejected suggestions that he is looking for a move away from Fiorentina because he is yet to sign a new contract. The player confirmed that he has just over six months left on his deal.

However, he has not signed on the dotted line just yet primarily because he is concentrating on the league campaign. It is expected that Aquilani may extend his contract with Fiorentina, if he wishes to, during the winter break. Aquilani’s agent recently confirmed that the player has been holding talks with the club over a potential contract extension.

Fiorentina would not be happy with letting the player leave on a free transfer, as they would ideally like to get some transfer fee. After a few disastrous years at Liverpool, the former Roma man does seem to be coming back to his best. He has been at Fiorentina since 2012, but he is reported to have cost the club under £ 1 million in transfer fees. This is because of his injury crisis at Liverpool, which forced the Premier League outfit to cut their losses on the player they had signed for around £ 20 million a few years ago. The 30-year-old has featured in 13 matches this season and has scored one goal.

“The situation is clear – my contract expires next June.My relationship with the club is good, with directors I’ve known for a long time. So there’s no war!We’ve begun the journey [to a renewal], and we’re talking about it. But there’s still no news because I’ve played a lot of matches this season, including with the national team and therefore there wasn’t much time to talk. I’m fine here, and the club knows that,” said Aquilani. Fiorentina are 10th in the table with just three wins from the opening 10 matches.

Aquilani Future Unclear

With the Italian season just about to kick-off there are a number of players who still have not defined their future and one of those examples is Fiorentina’s Alberto Aquilani who is expected to have talks with Fiorentina within the next few weeks or days.

Aquilani’s contract with Fiorentina expires on June of 2015 but the Italian midfielder was recently rumored to be on the radar of many clubs in the MLS but taking into consideration that the summer transfer window is only a few days away from being shut down, it looks like Aquilani will remain performing in Serie A for at least another season.

Ever since Alberto Aquilani made his move from Liverpool to Fiorentina, the veteran midfielder has managed to become an important figure for the club of Vincenzo Montella as he went on to makes 31 appearances helping the Italian outfit on securing the 4th spot in the previous edition of the league.

Vincenzo Montella has maintained a fairly low budget during the summer transfer window having signed a number of players on loan deals while others were added to the team without breaking the bank. Even though no big name performers were added to the squad, Fiorentina usually manages to squeeze its way into the top spots of the Italian League and since Aquilani is reaching the last few years or seasons of his career, he is eager to finish it on a high note and help Fiorentina on getting even higher spots than previously before.

The Europa League is an objective that Aquilani will be aiming for in the next season for his club.
