Rafael Benitez is hoping to fund a 10million raid for Real Sociedad playmaker Xabi Alonso after sanctioning the shock sale of Danny Murphy.

Liverpool on Sunday agreed a 2.5million fee with Tottenham for the 27-year-old England international after telling Benitez he had to raise funds before he could spend again.

And the new manager has moved swiftly to land his top target Alonso, devastating Murphy with the news he was no longer wanted on Friday and meeting officials from the Spanish club at Goodison Park on Saturday.

Benitez watched the central midfielder produce a stylish first-half display in Sociedad's 2-2 draw with Everton and hopes to make the Spanish international his showpiece summer signing before the end of the week.

ManU are going to have their hands full challenging Liverpool for third place. Obviously first and second place belong to Arsenal and Chelsea.

Xabi Alonso has been omitted from Real Sociedad's squad for a friendly on Wednesday, fuelling rumours he is on the verge of joining Liverpool.

The Spanish club have already confirmed they have received an offer for the midfielder - thought to be 10.7m.

And Sociedad also revealed they are willing to sell the player, who played twice at Euro 2004, at the right price.

Alonso, 22, could replace midfielder Danny Murphy, who joined Charlton on Tuesday for 2.5m.

Spain international midfielder Xabi Alonso cannot wait to complete his proposed move to Liverpool, according to his agent.

The Real Sociedad midfielder is currently with his national team preparing for Wednesday's friendly against Venezuela but is hoping that upon his return to San Sebastian later this week that he will be a Liverpool player.

"Xabi Alonso is looking forward for the deal to be completed," Alonso's agent Inaki Ibanez said.

"I know he watched Liverpool's game this weekend (1-1 draw at Tottenham) and he is focused on the possibility of playing in the English Premiership next season."

Alonso, who has three years left in his contract with Real, has been at the centre of the transfer gossip with Spanish giants Real Madrid also keen to sign the player.
