The Mirror is reporting that Rafa Benitez is lining up a move for Marseille skipper Lorik Cana as cover for Xabi Alonso should the Spaniard make an exit this Summer.

Benitez is said to be keen on the player and is said to have made enquiries regarding a £10m move.

The Spaniard has spoken to former Anfield midfielder Boudewijn Zenden to discuss the Albanian’s qualities and received a glowing report from the Dutchman.

Xabi Alonso is said to be interesting both Juventus and Arsenal again and Benitez could be set to cash in on the player he came close to selling last year.

Cana was born in war-torn Pristina in Yugoslavia but fled to Albania along with his family. His dad was a former Yugoslav international but Lorik opted for his adopted homeland.

Benitez is said to be ready to move for the player whether Alonso departs or not and any move would not stop him signing Gareth Barry from Aston Villa either.
