Liverpool have earned a reputation as experts in the transfer market. The Reds have been buying low and selling high under Michael Edwards – identifying diamonds in the rough, bringing them in at bargain prices and transforming them into world class superstars. The Reds could make another nifty move in the market this January. Liverpool should move for David Alaba – he has reportedly rejected a new contract at Bayern Munich.
David Alaba contract
28-year-old Austrian superstar David Alaba has just a matter of months remaining on his contract at Bayern Munich.
The defender’s deal expires in the summer and according to Christian Falk the defender has rejected a new contract at the Allianz Arena.
This means that clubs can approach the Champions League winner in January with a view to agreeing a pre-contract with the star.

The Reds need to start thinking about a replacement for the versatile, experienced and industrious James Milner.
Alaba is the perfect man to take on Milly’s role. The Austrian can play anywhere in defence or in the midfield, he has experience just about everywhere on the pitch.
Furthermore, he has winning pedigree. The Austrian has won an embarrassment of league titles with Munich and has lifted the Champions League twice with the club.
Thiago can help
Recent signing Thiago can help Liverpool persuade David Alaba to make the switch to Merseyside.
The Spaniard spent the best part of a decade with the defender at Bayern Munich, he will be able to use this relationship to convince the Bundesliga man.
If the Reds did pull this move off then we would have managed to incredible bargain signings from the same club within the space of a year. Alaba is one of the finest and most versatile footballers in the world, to bag him on a free would be extraordinary business.
