Liverpool and Man City target David Alaba is reportedly open to a Premier League move once his Bayern Munich contract expires.
The player has rejected a new deal in Germany as he decides on the next part of his career.
His currently contract expires in June 2021, meaning he can talk to interested clubs from January.
According to 90Min, Alaba is open to a Premier League move after previously ruling it out.
The news means City and Liverpool officials will be preparing offers to lure the defender to their respective clubs.
Bayern chief Hasan Salihamidzic has previously admitted that the club will lose Alaba to one of their rivals.
He said: “In life and football you should never say never. But I don’t know how we can still find each other. We made an offer that was rejected and now we have to deal with the fact that David will leave us.”
Signing Alaba would be a huge boost for either City or Liverpool in the future. The Austrian international is widely regarded as one of the best defenders in the world.
He is set to hold talks with potential suitors in January under the Bosman contract ruling.
Alaba would then be allowed to move in the summer of 2021.
His contract demands would likely be huge, but it’s surely a price either club would be willing to pay.
Alaba could also provide Liverpool with a major boost following the loss of Virgil Van Dijk.
The Dutchman will miss at least seven months after being taken out by keeper Jordan Pickford.
His surgery was successful, but the Reds are still having to deal without him.
Alaba has won countless trophies during his time at Bayern.
He’s picked up nine German league titles and two Champions League trophies.
He’s also a hero in his native Austria, having been named as the country’s player of the year on six occasions.
