Alonso to hold Benitez talks

Liverpool welcomed their Euro 2008 winning Spanish contingent back to Melwood today as Xabi Alonso prepared to hold talks with Rafael Benitez over his future.
Alonso, along with Fernando Torres, Pepe Reina and Alvaro Arbeloa, began pre-season training with the Reds after being given extra time off by Benitez following their European Championship glory.
Liverpool attempted to sell Alonso earlier this summer in order to finance a deal for Aston Villa's Garth Barry and the midfielder will discuss his Anfield future with Benitez today with the 26-year-old desperate to remain on Merseyside.
Meanwhile, reports have claimed that Arbeloa is looking for a move back to La Liga due to 'personal reasons' but the Liverpool Echo states that the Reds have had no indication from either the player or his agent that this is the case.
