Spain international Alonso has been a long-term target of the Primera Division giants but Reds manager Rafa Benitez has been reluctant to part company with the midfielder.

However, Real appear poised to finally get their man after striking a deal with Liverpool, believed to be in the region of £30million.

Alonso is now set for a medical at Real, while Liverpool have confirmed "the terms of the deal will remain confidential and undisclosed".

The 27-year-old Alonso signed at Anfield from Real Sociedad in 2004 and has made 143 Premier League appearances for the side.

Real have embarked on an ambitious recruitment project this summer and they have already signed the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka from Manchester United and AC Milan respectively.

Los Blancos have yet to bolster their central midfield and see Alonso as the ideal candidate to help complement the club's current squad.
