Aquilani Signing Close?

Well, today's it's breaking that we've been speaking to Alberto Aquilani's agent, Vincenzo Morabito about a potential move to Arsenal. Aquilani plays as a defensive midfielder and is potentially a replacement for Mathieu Flamini (who will be playing UEFA cup football next season...).

Quotes from his agent:

“Aquilani is speaking to Arsenal. We will have to see if Roma will be able to match his demands.”

So, who is Aquilani? Well, he is a 23-year old defensive midfielder who currently plays for Roma. He joined them when he was 16 and has supposedly rejected Chelsea in 2001. He’s highly regarding and has been capped at Under 21′s level. He was named in the “UEFA Team of the tournament” last summer in the Under 21 championships…

And Wikipedia has this section…

Arsenal and Valencia both had summer offers rejected for Roma’s Alberto Aquilani, according to reports in Italy. The duo were believed to have put in bids of around 15million euros, but Roma turned both sides down in order keep one of their star midfielders. It is rumoured that he is currently talking to Arsenal FC for possible summer move to the Emirates.

Just another rumour? I think there may be something in this one… we’ll find out soon…
