Liverpool told where Alaba ‘would prefer to play’ amid January speculation

Will Liverpool sign Alaba?

David Alaba would prefer to head for Spain rather than Liverpool once the day comes for him to leave Bayern Munich, claims Dietmar Hamann.

Over the past few weeks there has been alot of speculation in the media that Liverpool are now the favourites to make a move to bring Alaba to the Premier League after he failed to agree a new contract with Bayern Munich.

It is no secret that Virgil Van Dijk is out for some time and reports suggest that Jurgen Klopp is eager to sign cover for the Dutchman in the transfer window, with Alaba seen as a real bargain buy in the transfer window

The 28-year-old is, however, also said to be of interest to La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid, meaning that he could be out of reach for Klopp, and Hamann expects that to be the case.

Discussing Liverpool’s links to Alaba with Stadium Astro, former Reds and Bayern midfielder Hamann said: “I think his preferred destination was always Spain. I’m not sure if he wants to go to the Premier League and come to Liverpool.

“The fact that Liverpool are interested is not a surprise because Alaba has probably been one of the best centre-backs – after Van Dijk – for the last 12-18 months. I just don’t see Bayern Munich letting him go in January”

Alaba is a world class player that Liverpool would love to add to the side, so now that the window is open, many are interested to see just what type of transfer business the Champions will do.
