Real Madrid and Chelsea are believed to be the two sides that have shown the most interest in David Alaba.

It now seems that Chelsea may have a new rival in Liverpool for the Austrian star.

According to Goal’s Romeo Agresti via Bianconeri Zone, Liverpool have already tabled a contract offer to the Bayern Munich star.

The Italian journalist is renowned for being a top tier source of information for Juventus fans, and usually delivers fairly credible transfer rumours.

Alaba who can play as a central defender, left-back and central midfielder, has recently rejected the advances of Real Madrid.

Reports claim Real Madrid have offered the Bayern Munich defender a four-year deal worth nearly £9m a season.

Alaba is due to be a free agent when his contract with Bayern Munich runs down at the end of June, and so far, he has rejected Bayern Munich’s £200,000-a-week contract extension.

In this Alaba scenario, it’s looking more like a game of numbers for the Austrian. The highest bidder may end up being the winner.
