Secco can see Juventus sending Aquilani back to Liverpool

Former Juventus sports director Alessio Secco believes they will send Alberto Aquilani back to Liverpool.

Former Juventus sports director Alessio Secco believes they will send Alberto Aquilani back to Liverpool.

Secco feels the Italy international midfielder hasn't done enough to justify the €16m that Juventus would need to pay to seal the deal.

He told Radio Mercato: “In my opinion, aside from the injury he suffered, Juventus will opt to sign Fabio Quagliarella from Napoli.

“It's true that he's coming off a rather serious injury, but in the end I think that his abilities as a player are not up for discussion and that Juventus will do everything to sign him.

“Instead, I think it'll be hard to see Juventus sign Aquilani. The player hasn't given the quality necessary to help the Bianconeri make that jump in class.

“Aside from the game against Lecce on Sunday, in which the entire team played in a mediocre fashion, I think that Aquilani hasn't had a great season and that signing him for €16m seems a very exaggerated figure.”
