Many Liverpool fans reacted in delight after an update regarding Liverpool’s pursuit for Bayern Munich defender David Alaba was provided.
According to The Athletic’s David Ornstein, the Austrian centre-back will join a new club next July, with Liverpool one of the clubs interested.
The report added that Manchester United and Manchester City are also keeping close tabs, while Chelsea have been ruled out of the running.
Liverpool will of course be looking for defensive reinforcements next month after Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez were both ruled out for the foreseeable future due to serious knee injuries.
Since his introduction to the first-team of the Bavarian giants in 2010, Alaba has had a hugely successful career in Germany, scoring 32 goals and providing 49 assists in 404 appearances (TransferMarkt).
Would you bring David Alaba to Liverpool in January?
With this in mind, supporters were excited about the prospect of Alaba moving to Anfield, urging the Anfield club to get the deal done.
Fans delighted with Alaba update
“Can’t describe how good this would be”
“Why wouldn’t we, seriously? As long as he’s not asking for all the money under the sun, this would be a superb signing for his versatility alone. Get it done I say @LFC”
“This needs to be done”
“Massive business if we’re interested and can get it done.”
