Agent insists no Fiorentina contact for Liverpool's Aquilani

The agent of Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani has cooled talk of a swap move to Fiorentina.

There has been talk the Viola were making a bid for the €9m-rated midfielder, which could include a swap with Juan Manuel Vargas.

"Let us not open up a soap opera, please," agent Franco Zavaglia told Radio Sportiva.

"Aquilani is a Liverpool player and he is happy where he is now. We have not received any requests from Daniele Prade, but that was only to be expected, seeing as Aquilani will only leave on a permanent move and at figures Fiorentina cannot afford.

"I would rule out a current return to Italy. At the moment Alberto is relaxed and on Tuesday he'll attend pre-season training with Liverpool, as planned."
