Juventus are reviving talks with Liverpool for midfielder Xabi Alonso.

The Daily Mail says Juve are expected to renew contact with Liverpool by the end of the week and match their £16.5million asking price after previously failing with a £14.5m offer.

Senior Juve sources claim Alonso is now back in pole position and that they are prepared to find the extra two million euros to secure his signing, particularly after a concerted website campaign by supporters in favour of the ex-Real Sociedad midfielder.
