Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso is set for contract talks with Juventus today.

The Daily Mail says Xabi's agent will hold talks with Juventus today to seal a £13.5million move.

His representative Inaki Ibanez is expected to hammer out the terms of a five-year deal.

The Spain midfielder, who was settled in Liverpool, had hoped for an offer from his native country but only Barcelona and Real Madrid can afford him.
