I am sure that Liverpool fans appreciate just what kind of talent Xabi Alonso possesses, and I am sure also that Rafa would like to keep the Spaniard, but it does seem that he is heading for an Anfield exit and that would be a real shame.

Alonso has had a difficult season, with injury and patches of average form. He now looks set to move to Italy to join Claudio Ranieri’s Juve revolution. The 26-year-old midfielder is a class act and one who has shown what he can do for the club on many occasions, so I am sure Reds fans will be hoping that the club does all they can to keep the Spanish international. What do the fans think about Xabi? Do they believe he is a player worth fighting to keep hold of?
