3. Xabi Alonso
Real Madrid man Xabi Alonso is highly thought of by current Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti, and he is trying to convince the former Liverpool man to sign on in the Spanish capital before his contract expires this summer. If he chose to leave Los Blancos, they may settle for a cut price in January, and it would prove to be a bargain for whatever club secures his services, and that could be Arsenal. Though he is also of interest to Juventus, Napoli, Fiorentina, AC Milan, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Liverpool, so they must move fast to secure his signature.
