Liverpool striker Daniel Pacheco is being advised by Xabi Alonso as he considers joining La Liga new boys Real Sociedad.
The Spain Under 19 international only signed a new three-year contract last August, but it would seem that his opportunities are limited at Anfield.
Sociedad president Jokin Aperribay has recently confirmed that Pacheco is a target and the former Barcelona teenager is tempted by a return to his homeland.
"Playing for Sociedad appeals to me," Pacheco is quoted as saying in the Daily Mail. "I have heard good things about the club, the city and the people."
Pacheco has been taking advice from Real Madrid star Alonso, who joined Liverpool in 2004 after five years with Sociedad.
"He (Alonso) has been helping and advising me," he added.
"I've been told good things about the coach. They say he bets on youngsters who have character."
