Arsenal face tussle with Liverpool to land Austrian star

However some supporters of Liverpool have been distracted by news from the Daily Star who report that Arsenal have joined the chase to sign Reds target, Red Bull Salzburg defender Martin Hinteregger.

The Austrian Under-21 international is thought to be on Brendan Rodgers’ radar after becoming a key player for Salzburg since making his debut back in 2010.

Hinteregger, 21, has already featured nine times this term and according to the latest reports, a switch to Anfield could be on the cards as the Reds look to add more strength in depth to their defence.

Liverpool brought in Kolo Toure, Aly Cissokho, Tiago Ilori and Mamadou Sakho during the recent transfer window but that doesn’t seem enough and the Reds boss will now try to add the centre back to his ranks.

However the Reds will face competition from the Gunners who have reportedly had a long-term interest in the defender as Arsene Wenger looks to add to his current defensive options.

While Serie A giants Juventus could also pose a threat to both English sides, having watched Hinteregger in recent weeks in the Austrian Bundesliga.

Who do you think will land the impressive Austrian in January? Let us know your thoughts below.
