Juventus general manager Jean-Claude Blanc is still confident of signing Xabi Alonso despite Liverpool reportedly holding out for a higher transfer fee.

The Spanish playmaker´s move to Italy had been expected to be sealed on Monday but talks have stalled with Liverpool said to be demanding 20 million euros - two million more than Juve´s offer.

Blanc told Sky Italia: "Xabi Alonso? It´s an operation that we´re taking forward and we´ll compare him to other deals which could be done."
