Midfielder Alberto Aquilani is set to return to Liverpool - because nobody wants to sign him, his agent has said.

Aquilani, 27, spent last season on loan at AC Milan. He joined Liverpool from Roma in a £20 million deal in 2009, but failed to settle before being loaned to Juventus in the 2010-11 campaign.

Reports in Italy said Aquilani - under contract at Anfield until 2014 - would terminate his Liverpool deal in order to make a permanent switch to Milan in the summer.

But his agent Franco Zavaglia told Sportitalia: "Almost certainly, he will not terminate his contract with Liverpool.

"He could join them at the beginning of July to start pre-season training with the English club. At this time, there are no clubs interested in him."
