The Scottish manager has urged Milan to make a decision on the former Roma man's future but still insists he would welcome the on-loan midfielder back to AnfieldLiverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has insisted that he would be happy to have AC Milan loanee Alberto Aquilani back in the summer, but has urged the Italian giants to let the midfielder know where his future lies.
The Italian joined Liverpool for £16 million in 2009, but struggled to settle due to injuries and has since returned to his homeland in loan deals with Juventus and Milan.
The former Roma man has made 22 appearances this season, but has failed to start any of the last four games amidst rumours that Milan do not want to trigger the automatic £6m buy-out clause that will come into effect if he plays 25 games.

Dalglish expressed his frustration at the Italian champions’ conduct, but admits that he would welcome Aquilani back to Anfield.
"We've done everything right from our side, so how they want to play it and what they want to do, that's up to them," told reporters.
"If they don't want him, tell the boy you don't want him. They will do what they have to do. If they don't trigger it or they don't want him, it's not a problem.
"I'll be disappointed for the boy, but then he'll come back here as he's our player."
