Antonio Conte does not want Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani at Juventus.

Juventus turned to Conte to replace the sacked Luigi Del Neri shortly after agreeing a cut-price £8million fee with Liverpool to turn Aquilani's season-long loan into a permanent transfer.

But former Siena boss Conte told Juve bosses he did not want the 26-year old midfielder and is expected to confirm as much at his inaugural press conference.

Aquilani is desperate to stay in Italy, nearly two years after joining Liverpool from Roma for £17m, and may yet have his wish granted, with both Milan clubs interested in signing him.
