Many Liverpool fans reacted in delight over a transfer update regarding Bayern Munich midfielder David Alaba.
According to Goal journalist Romeo Agresti (via Anfield Edition), the Reds have submitted a contract worth in the region of £9m a year in line to a free transfer in the summer, with his Bavarian contract due to expire at the end of the 2020/21 campaign.
If this deal was to go through, the Austria international will reunite with his former teammate Thiago Alcantara – who left the Bundesliga champions to join Jurgen Klopp’s side for £20m.
Would you bring David Alaba to Liverpool in January?
In light of Liverpool’s catastrophic injury crisis at the back, with both Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez ruled out for a significant time, supporters were keen to see Alaba in a red shirt as soon as possible.
Fans gush over Alaba bid
“Big if true”
“We really need this guy, he will fit in directly”
“Amazing, really versatile player and a great Wijnaldum replacement (can play in the midfield), but we need him NOW, not in the Summer, this doesn’t help us at all right now”
“Oh yes please”
“Get it done”
