Valencia could be the latest club ready to move for Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso with the Reds willing to cash in. (Daily Mail)

Xabi Alonso started this season with a bang and to some extent proved his boss incorrect for reportedly considering the midfielder as surplus to requirements to a midfield that already had a host of top class internationals. However there seems to be a consistent plethora of stories suggesting that the 26 year old is homesick and would welcome a move back to the La Liga, clearly this homesickness was not a factor when the excellent midfielder managed to net against Chelsea (albeit a deflected effort). To be honest it startled me that Benitez would even consider selling the former Sociedad man. The battling midfielder with an eye for a fifty yard cross field ball is a much loved player at Anfield and the fans there would not want to see him go so hopefully this will all just be more mindless rumour mongering. Do Liverpool fans think that Xabi will leave the club sooner rather than later or will he help the club to the title!
