Italian giants Juventus may make another move this summer to sign Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso, after missing out on the Spaniard last summer.
Alonso was close to a Â£15million move to Serie A last summer after it looked likely that Rafa Benitez would bring in Aston Villa’s Gareth Barry to replace him. But after helping his country to win the European Championships, Alonso has proved to be one of the Reds’ most important players in the 2008/09 campaign.
Italian football agent, Ernesto Bronzetti, has hinted that the Alonso to Juventus transfer saga may take place yet again at the end of the this season. He said, “I would try to bring in Alonso. There was a long chase last summer for his signature, of course, so it is a road we know.
“Pairing him with Sissoko would be a title-winning midfield.
“The problem is that it would be very hard and expensive to take such an important player away from Liverpool.”
Reds boss Benitez has recently announced his desire to keep Alonso at Anfield this summer.
Meanwhile, Sami Hyypia continues to be linked with a summer departure and Wolves manager Mick McCarthy has admitted he would be interested in signing the big Finn for his newly promoted side.
With Daniel Agger also linked with a move away, talk of centre back replacements involve Spaniard RaÃºl Albiol and Fulham’s Brede Hangeland.
