Liverpool: Fans react to James Pearce’s tweet on David Silva - Liverpool News

Alberto Aquilani’s transfer to Liverpool was one that just didn’t work out in any way.

The Reds paid £20m for the Italian, who came into replace Xabi Alonso who had just made the switch to Real Madrid. He came from AS Roma with a good reputation after 149 matches with the Giallorossi, but he was never able to make a real impression at Anfield. Injuries dogged him throughout his spell at the club, and he would end up making just 28 appearances in all competitions before departing.

He said that David Silva was also on the club’s radar at the time, but he just wasn’t affordable. As such, they made their move for Aquilani instead.
