Alberto Aquilani is still hoping to make his stay at AC Milan a permanent one, despite a return to Liverpool looking increasingly likely.
Aquilani spent the 2011-12 campaign on loan at Milan, but did not play enough games for the Serie A side to trigger a clause in his contract that would have seen him join the Italian giants permanently.
Milan last week agreed a deal to sign Fiorentina midfielder Riccardo Montolivo, seemingly leaving Aquilani to return to Anfield.
But he believes Milan may still try and strike a deal with the Merseysiders.
"We’ll have to wait and see what happens when it comes to my future," he was quoted by the Daily Mirror as saying.
"The door is semi-open for me to stay here."
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish last month stated he was ready to welcome Aquilani back to Anfield.
"We’ve done everything right from our side, so how they want to play it and what they want to do, that’s up to them," said the Reds boss after Milan appeared to be keen to ensure the 27-year-old did not make the 25 starts that would have triggered a transfer fee in the region of £7million.
"If they don’t want him, tell the boy you don’t want him. They will do what they have to do. If they don’t trigger it or they don’t want him, it’s not a problem.
"I’ll be disappointed for the boy, but he will come back here."
