Spain midfielder Xabi Alonso has spoken of his "fascination" of Italian football as speculation over his mooted transfer to Juventus continues apace.

The Liverpool playmaker is part of the Spain squad preparing to face Italy in the quarter-finals of Euro 2008 on Sunday, a match during which Alonso could come face to face with a number of future team-mates at the Bianconeri

But the 26-year-old couched his enthusiasm for the Italian game, telling Sky Italia: "I am very calm. I have little to say about Juve because at the moment I am very focused on Euro 2008 and on Spain."
