The future of the Italian midfielder Alberto Aquilani is unclear with his agent, Franco Zaviglia not sure about what is going to happen with his client at Fiorentina.
Aquilani still has a 1 year remaining with his contract at Fiorentina but with more clubs launching offers and displaying interest in the central midfielder, he is being linked away from Fiorentina but nothing official has been made.
Fiorentina is believed to have received interest and possible offers from Ac.Milan and Athletic Madrid for Alberto Aquilani. Ac.Milan is a club where Aquilani already has experience playing as he enjoyed playing at San Siro some years ago on a loan deal and during his time there, he made a number of impressive performances.
Aquilani’s agent,Franco Zaviglia told the media: “You’ll have to ask the magicians about the boy’s future. The situation is at a standstill. There has been no recent contact; the last contact was a month ago. What is the boy hoping for? That’s a question for him, not for me. I haven’t heard from him since the World Cup. I repeat the situation is at a standstill because it’s been a month that we haven’t spoken.”
The Fiorentina player took a plane to Brazil as he was named in the list of players that Cesare Prandelli announced for the 2014 World Cup but Aquilani had to settle with a place on the sidelines of the team and never managed on making a single appearance.
Aquilani wants to continue playing an important role for his club and try forget about the disappointing journey that Italy went through in this years’ edition of the World Cup where he failed on playing as well as having to witness his nation not being able to get past through the group stages.

Fiorentina managed a comfortable 5-3 win over Hellas Verona in a result that only cemented their position in the top four of the table. Fiorentina were looking like potential Champions League position contenders a few weeks ago, but they are now looking likely to settle for the Europa league spot. Injuries to crucial players like Giuseppe Rossi and Mario Gomez have proved tough to take for the viola, as they have continued their resurgence under manager Vincenzo Montella. He said that the win over Hellas Verona was the best he has achieved as the Fiorentina manager.
Despite going a goal down early in the match, Fiorentina showed a lot of courage and determination to get back into the match. In the end, they ran away more than comfortably with the three points. Montella said that this match demonstrated a lot of positive aspects like tactical discipline and incredible attacking tendencies. According to him, his players were at an incredible wavelength that made them had to defend against. This was primarily because they were making runs with a lot of timing since and it made their opposition work extremely hard. Fiorentina remain nine points behind third placed in the league.
More crucially, they have a five-point advantage over Inter Milan in the fifth place.
“It was one of our best performances since I came to Fiorentina and I like it when the team plays with such quality. We showed tactical acumen, timed our runs well and created so many chances. I was very happy to see my team play such attacking and attractive football. If we were voting now, I’d give the Coach of the Year award to Garcia because it’s truly complicated to work in an environment like Roma,” said Montella about their latest performance against Verona and potential manager of the year.
