Juve confirm plan to keep Aquilani

Juventus general manager Beppe Marotta has praised on-loan Alberto Aquilani, and promised to try and sign him on a permanent basis.
Aquilani has impressed this season for the Turin giants after joining on loan from Liverpool. The Premier League club paid in the region of £20 million for him in 2009, but after one injury-ravaged season in England he was sent back to Italy to regain his form.
The Italian international has seemingly put his troublesome fitness record behind him and there have been calls for Juve to keep him beyond the end of his loan spell.
However, it is thought that the Bianconeri are not willing to pay the same fee that Liverpool bought him for. They are willing to pay in the region of £12m for him, but the two clubs’ differing valuations of the player could prevent a deal being agreed.
Marotta has no doubts about Aquilani, though. He told Sky Sports: “Aquilani is a player of value and is doing very well, we’re happy.
“He has to feel comfortable because the fact that we took him on loan didn’t mean that we had to evaluate him. His qualities have been known since he played in the youth of Roma and in the national team.
“In due time we’ll meet with Liverpool and we will do everything to keep him with us.”

The player has frequently expressed his desire to remain with Juve.
