Liverpool hope to raise £7 million from the sale of Alberto Aquilani to Fiorentina.

It was reported last night that Aquilani had left Liverpool's US training camp for Florence to complete the move.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers wants to make way for a new midfield capture - and 28-year-old Aquilani's £100k-a-week wages going off the payroll will help.
