Liverpool are poised to boost their transfer funds by offloading Alberto Aquilani to Fiorentina and selling back-up goalkeeper Brad Jones to Norwich.

Aquilani, 28, who commands an annual salary of more than £6million, was left out of Liverpool’s squad for the final game of their North American tour in Baltimore as he discussed a £7m permanent move.

He has spent the previous two years on loan at Juventus and AC Milan.

The club are expected  to step up their attempts to sign Swansea’s Joe Allen if the deal is completed.

Jones, 30, has made just one league appearance for Liverpool since signing from Middlesbrough in 2010 for a £2.3m fee, but Chris Hughton believes Jones could put pressure on first choice John Ruddy.

Liverpool are keen on Wolves keeper Dorus de Vries, 31, and Birmingham’s Jack Butland, 19.
