Italy international Alberto Aquilani has revealed that he's eager to make his stay at Juventus permanent this summer. The playmaker joined Juventus on a one-year loan from Liverpool last summer and the Old Lady have the option to make the move permanent.
"My situation is simple. It all depends on Juventus - if they want to, they can buy me without asking anyone's opinion," Aquilani was quoted as saying by La Gazzetta dello Sport.
"I would like to stay in Turin for a long time and win a lot. I want to be a protagonist in the new winning cycle that is opening up at Juventus. I have no doubt that Juve's project is a winner, they just need a little patience."
Aquilani went on to say that he's pleased to have shaken off his injury problems.
"I played with great continuity, without any particular problems. I finally removed the tag of me always being injured. I knew I was healthy, that I was just unlucky in the past, but in football people just want to label someone."
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish revealed earlier this week that there's a chance that Aquilani will return to Anfield Road this summer, but the 26-year-old seems to have set his sights on a definitive return to Italy.
