Alberto Aquilani (born 7 July 1984) is an Italian footballer who plays for Serie A club Milan on loan from Liverpool. He is also part of the Italian national team. Aquilani is a central midfielder, who can operate in a holding position or an attacking position in the hole behind the strikers. Marcello Lippi has branded Aquilani as one of Italy's top midfielders.

Aquilani began his career at Roma and, after a brief loan spell at Triestina, returned to the Serie A club where he became a regular in the Roma side during the 2005 - 06 season. During the following season, he suffered a thigh injury and was ruled out for several months. He moved to Liverpool for the start of the 2009 10 season, in a deal that including add ons, could potentially be worth £20m in total. In August 2010, having received only limited playing time at Anfield, he joined Juventus on loan until the end of the season. Aquilani returned to Liverpool at the end of the season as Juventus did not take up their purchase option. Having played for Liverpool during their pre-season tours, it was then announced that Aquilani would be returning to Serie A on loan again, this time with AC Milan.

Internationally, Aquilani has represented Italy at youth level and at the Euro 2008. He made his full international debut in November 2006 in a 1 1 draw against Turkey.
