Rafa looks for Alonso’s replacement

Transfer Speculation

Rafa Benitez is set to replace Xabi Alonso with Marseille's highly-rated captain Lorik Cana, if Juventus are successful in luring the influential midfielder away from Liverpool. According to today’s Telegraph, Benitez has already spoken to former red Boudewijn Zenden to assess his credentials, with the Dutchman giving Rafa a positive assessment of the player. Albanian international Cana would cost in the region of £10 million and has won plaudits in France this season as Marseille look to secure the title. The Daily Mirror has a top ten profile on the player with clips of the Marseille star in action.

I certainly hope Alonso doesn’t leave, he’s had his best season so far with the reds and it is suited to the Premier League. It would take a particularly special individual to top him.
