Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani is prepared to accept a pay-cut to force through a move to Fiorentina, according to reports.

The Italian playmaker has struggled to break into the first team since arriving on Merseyside and Liverpool are willing to let him go if they can recoup most of the £20m they spent in 2009.

Aquilani's agent Franco Zavaglia said, "Anything can happen. We'll wait and see if there is anything concrete."

Milan Jovanovic could also be allowed to leave this summer, with Anderlecht interested in the Serbian forward.

The 30-year-old has been told he's surplus to requirements at Anfield and the Belgian side have opened talks with the player's representatives.

"We're currently negotiating with Jovanovic, but we couldn't achieve an agreement [yet]," a club spokesman said.

"We're very much interested and the player would like to come."

New Hernandez

Liverpool are close to finalising a deal for promising Mexican youngster Marco Bueno, the Metro reports.

The 17-year-old will spend a 10-day trail at the club's Melwood training ground, with a view to a permanent deal.

Bueno's club, Pachuca, have confirmed negotiations are close to completion.

Vice-president Andres Fassi said, "We are conducting negotiations with Liverpool and possible, on 1 August, Marco Bueno will pay a visit to Liverpool.

"We have already practically closed negotiations with them. They want to buy 100 per cent of the rights.

The Under-17 World Cup winner says he aims to emulate Fernando Torres's success at Anfield.

"The important thing isn't to get there but to establish yourself, it's the start of a great career with a lot of effort and dedication I hope it can work out well," he told Record.

"I want to be like Fernando Torres, he is very skilful and I want to be like him."

Defensive Cover

Kenny Dalglish is reportedly monitoring Hamburg left-back Marcel Jansen, as he searches for a replacement for Paul Konchesky.

The 25-year-old former Bayern Munich player had previously been linked with Anfield under Roy Hodgson's tenure. He is widely regarded as the best left-back in the Bundesliga and is a regular under German manager Joachim Löw.

Meanwhile, 'Sources close to the deal' have told A Bola - via ESPN Soccer - that Liverpool are ready to pay the €20 million release clause to sign Uruguay international Alvaro Pereira from Porto. He can play at left back or left midfield.
