Report: Liverpool Midfielder Alberto Aquilani Linked With Inter

The injury-plagued player could return to Serie A...
Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani could be set to return to Serie A with treble winners Inter, according to tuttomercatoweb.

The playmaker transferred to Anfield from Roma last summer for a fee of €20 million, but he spent plenty of time on the sidelines and was then used as a rotation player unable to fill the potential he showed with the Giallorossi.

The 25-year-old's link to the Nerazzurri is interesting, since his former boss at Liverpool Rafa Benitez has been widely tipped to take over the vacant bench after Jose Mourinho's departure to Real Madrid. Once Aquilani recovered from injury, the tactician often used him as a rotation player, rather than a regular member of the starting XI.

The midfielder could leave the English Premier League club for around half the price he was bought, if rumours are to be believed.
