Alberto Aquilani offered Liverpool FC lifeline by Kenny Dalglish

Kenny Dalglish has opened the door for Alberto Aquilani's possible return to Liverpool.

The Italian playmaker has made over 30 appearances during his season-long loan spell at Juventus, having seen his first 12 months with the Reds hampared by injuries following his feted £20million arrival as Xabi Alonso's immediate replacement in 2009.

But Dalglish insists that Aquilani's future at Anfield should not be written off despite Juve eager to secure the 26-year-old's services on a permanent basis from this summer.

He said: "When people talk about next season, I'm surprised they don't give Alberto a mention. Everyone seems to have forgotten about him. I know he has done really well at Juventus this season.

"When the loan finishes at the end of the season, he reverts back to being a Liverpool player.

"Nothing is cast in stone and he could be coming back to play for Liverpool. He could be a valuable asset here next season. He's still our player.

"He certainly didn't have the best of luck last season.

"At times he did really well and at other times he didn't do quite so well but you can say that about most players. What I do know is that he's had a fantastic season at Juventus."
