Aquilani to move to the Reds.

Liverpool are on the verge of signing Roma's Alberto Aquilani after the Italian side accepted an offer of 20 million pounds.

Rafa the Gaffa has wasted no time in securing this deal after Xabi Alonso is finalizing his 30 million pound transfer to Real Madrid.

A statement on Liverpool's website read: "Liverpool FC today confirmed they have agreed a deal with AS Roma for the transfer of Italian international Alberto Aquilani, subject to a medical. "Liverpool concluded their discussions with Roma once the sale of Xabi Alonso to Real Madrid was finally agreed."

Aquilani, 25, is expected to be one of the main men for Italy in next year's World Cup in south Africa.

Boss Benitez said: "Alberto is a very good player and I'm delighted we've reached agreement with Roma for his transfer. He will travel to Merseyside later this week for a medical. Alberto has a winning mentality and great experience in both Serie A and the Champions League.
"He has long been recognised as a top class talent in Italy, captaining his country at both Under-19 and Under-21 levels before establishing himself in the senior national side."

It is amazing how Liverpool can be in so much debt, just like Arsenal and Manchester United, but yet tend to spend more than the other two clubs. How is this possible?
Plans for a new stadium were scrapped, debts were rising so much that one co-owner had to sell his hockey team, but yet Rafa goes on a spending spree again.
I can see why some Chairmen of football clubs want control in the transfer part of their clubs footballing life.
