Alberto Aquilani's agent insists that the Italian midfielder will be part of the Liverpool first-team squad for next season. The 28-year-old, who has a contract at Anfield until 2014, spent the previous two seasons at Juventus and then AC Milan, but failed to secure a permanent move to either club.

Speaking to, the player's agent Franco Zavaglia said: "He'll play for Liverpool.

"There is little to say about leaving AC Milan, the season is over and he'll put that behind him.

"Alberto is back in England and is still a Liverpool player. He will play there next season."
