Liverpool have reportedly made their decision on a move to sign soon-to-be free agent David Alaba transfer. Jurgen Klopp has had to jiggle around his backline this season with 10 different centre-back pairings halfway through the campaign.
Long-term injuries to Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez, coupled with fitness concerns over Joel Matip, have left Fabinho as the only fit senior centre-back at the club.
According to The Independent, Liverpool have made it clear there is no deal in the pipeline to sign Alaba. The report states a move for Alaba is ‘a hard no’, although it does say that Liverpool made contact with Alaba last summer. But that was reportedly only done for comparative reasons when approaching a deal for Thiago Alcantara.
There are said to be plans in place to bring in a defender in the future, but Liverpool’s preference is to sign a young, up-and-coming centre-back who will come in to replace Matip.
