Liverpool look set to lose Alberto Aquilani permanently, according to the midfielder's agent, while Robbie Fowler is reportedly eyeing a shock return to English football, training with Blackpool.

Fowler left England in 2009 to join newly formed Australian football outfit North Queensland Fury. But the striker only stayed in the country for a few years before making the move to Thailand.

And now, the Liverpool hero, who scored over 100 goals in his 230-odd appearances for the Merseyside club, is training with Championship side Blackpool, according to reports in The Sun.

At 36 years old, Fowler was set for a move to India, but the league in that country has now been postponed, and Ian Holloway is said to be keen to get the hitman on board as quickly as possible.

The move would no doubt excite Liverpool fans, despite Fowler not moving back to Anfield, with the star an iconic hero amongst supporters for his epic goals at such a young age, and his controversial goal celebrations.

Meanwhile, Aquilani needs to make 25 appearances for AC Milan for his move to become permanent, and so far the Liverpool loan-midfielder has made 20. And with that in mind, Aquilani's agent admits that a deal for the Serie A to become his home is likely.

"Once Alberto has made 25 appearances [he has already made 20] for the Rossoneri, he will be a Milan player in all respects," he said, according to Talksport.

Aquilani struggled for game time under Roy Hodgson, and was out on loan at Juventus by the time Kenny Dalglish took over. While he had hoped for a permanent move away from the Anfield club last summer, only a loan could be agreed to, which now looks likely to become permanent.
