Alberto Aquilani Will Not Leave Liverpool For Napoli - Agent

The Italian is staying put...

Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani will not leave Anfield to join ambitious Serie A club Napoli this summer, the player's agent has revealed.

The former Roma player was signed by the English giants last summer but once again suffered injuries in 2009-10 and struggled. With Rafael Benitez leaving for Italian and European champions Inter at the end of last season, there had been doubts over the future of the 26-year-old under new Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson.

However, Aquilani's agent has dismissed all speculation suggesting that his client will leave the club. Franco Zavaglia told CalcioNapoli24.it: "Aquilani to Napoli? This news is absolutely unfounded. Every time someone dreams this up. Dreaming does not cost anything, but it is not a viable hypothesis.

"Aquilani is a Liverpool player and will remain in England. And his new coach Roy Hodgson says this will be the year of him establishing himself in the Premier League.

"I deny even the rumours of his return to Roma."
