Aquilani wants permanent Juve switch

The 26-year-old signed a season-long loan from Liverpool.

Rome: Juventus midfielder Alberto Aquilani says he is not focusing on his future at the moment, but admits he would like to extend his stay at the club.

The 26-year-old signed a season-long loan from Liverpool, but there has been recent discussion suggesting the midfielder may return to the Reds, as Juve refuse to meet the £14 million fee wanted by the English club.

Aquilani has been in good form this season, and has been rewarded with a recall to the Italy national team, recently playing against Slovenia and Ukraine.

"I have been playing well for a while," he told the club's official website. "The performances of the individual have been overshadowed by the club's results.

"But this Juventus side is maturing and getting better.

"I will know my future soon. For the moment, I aim to finish the season off well and will be giving it my all, as Juventus has given me a chance to return to Italy and regain the Azzurri jersey."

He added to il Corriere dello Sport: "There is a price fixed for Juve to acquire me at the end of the season.

"The club has to evaluate the situation but I would like to stay.

"It is thanks to the Bianconeri club that I have returned to the national team."

Juventus currently sit in seventh position in Serie A on 48 points.
