Liverpool FC today confirmed they have received permission from AS Roma to discuss personal terms with Italian international Alberto Aquilani.

The Reds concluded their discussions with Roma for permission to approach the player once the sale of Xabi Alonso to Real Madrid was finally agreed.

Aquilani, 25, who has yet to complete a medical, is expected to feature heavily for Italy in next year's World Cup finals.

Rafa Benitez said: "Alberto is a very good player who has a winning mentality and great experience in both Serie A and the Champions League.

"He has long been recognised as a top class talent in Italy, captaining his country at both Under 19 and Under 21 levels before establishing himself in the senior national side."

Discuss, i don't; know too much about him, i just hope he is over his injuries. Welcome alberto

Well i can't say he fills the spot of Xabi, he definately doesn't share his ball distribution. But he's good, and still relatively young, hope he can settle in and fill that gap and win the Reds the Premier league.

Actually for those of you who don't know Aquilani.... he's a far more creative player than Xabi Alonso......

Would you say he is a good investment for liverpool? I noticed he's very injury prone, and his passing game isn't as good as xabi's, but would he be more of a creative spark then xabi ?
