[Mercato] Alonso impressed by Juve

Xabi Alonso has said he is "fascinated" by Italian football as his Liverpool future remains in doubt with Juve leading the pack to sign him.

The playmaker is currently playing a pivotal role in Spain's Euro 2008 campaign preparing to face Italy and with the Serie A side chasing his signature, Alonso could be also facing several future Juventus team-mates during the quarter-final tie.

But the 26-year-old is giving nothing away, remaining calm about his club commitments and fully focused on Spain's progression into the final four.

"I have little to say about Juve because at the moment I am very focused on Euro 2008 and on Spain," the £16m-rated midfielder said.

"We'll see what will happen with Juve. It's difficult to say.

"I've spent four fantastic years at Liverpool, but I have to admit that I have always been fascinated by Italian football.

"However, it's too soon to talk about the future. In short - we'll see.

Alonso added: "Juve are one of the biggest teams in Europe, perhaps the biggest in Italy. They have many fans, not only in Italy, but all over the world.

"They're a team who want to get back to winning the Scudetto and who also want to compete in the Champions League."
