A move to bring Alonso back to Anfield is still a possibility after he revealed his love for the side and that some of his greatest moments were in a Liverpool shirt.

He said: “Liverpool was a very important part in my football career. Especially when we played at Anfield, we achieved great things and we had great nights at Anfield.

“There is a passion and atmosphere that comes when you play in England in the Premier League. It’s special and I had the privilege to play for five years for Liverpool, and it’s a really special club.”

There have already been talks between the two teams in the past but with the 32-year-old considered a vital member of the squad back then, he opted to remain in Spain instead.
