Alberto Aquilani battled with his fitnesswhile he was in Italian football at the start of his career and it continued following his transfer to Liverpool in the Premier League in the summer of 2009. The Reds paid around €20m (£17m) to secure his transfer from Italian capital club AS Roma during the summer transfer window in 2009.
Alberto Aquilani was handed his Juventus debut as a substitute for Simone Pepe during the 3-3 draw with Sampdoria in an Italian Serie A clash played on September 12, 2010. Aquilani also came off the bench for the 3-1 loss at home to Sicilian club Palermo on September 23, 2010. His first Juventus start came during the 4-2 victory over Cagliari at home in the league three days after the Palermo game as revealed earlier. After that, he played 80 minutes as Juventus and defending champions Inter Milan played out a goalless draw. His first Juventus goal arrived during the 4-0 win at home to Lecce two weeks after the Inter Milan game. His first full game for Juventus was during the goalless draw with hosts Bologna.
At the end of his loan spell in Turin, Juventus failed to use their option to sign Aquilani permanently. He then joined Italian rivals AC Milan on loan ahead of the 2011/12 season with the midfielder keen to continue his career in Italy.
