Aquilani heading to Anfield....That was fast

Wednesday, August 5, 2009

Just 24 hours after Liverpool accepted a bid from Real Madrid for Spanish midfielder Xabi Alonso, the Reds have had a bid accepted by Roma for midfielder Alberto Aquilani. Alonso today passed a medical and is expected to complete a £30 million pound move sometime in the next 24 hours.

But now the Liverpool faithful will turn their attention away from Alonso and onto Aquilani. The Italian midfielder has been linked to Liverpool for some time, and today a £20 million pound move was accepted and the midfielder will surely be a Liverpool player pending a medical and agreeing personal terms.

Personally, I don't think Aquilani was anywhere near the quality of Alonso. Iv seen him play a few times, for the Italian national side and for Roma in the Champions League and although he is a good player, Alonso is in my opinion far better.
