English Premier League outfit Bayern Munich have been tipped to win the race for defender David Alaba from German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich in the January transfer window.
The focus for the Reds team in the January window will be a defender as they lack options for one. Virgil Van Dijk and Fabinho are currently injured which makes it necessary for the team to bring in a cover.
There is a green light from the Bayern Munich star over a move as he is believed to be prepared to leave Germany after spending his entire career with the Bundesliga giants. He has proven to be a top defender that can fit into the level expected in Liverpool.

The Austria defender is not keen to sign a new deal with the Bundesliga giants as he enters his last six months of his contract at the beginning of 2021 which means he would have to leave for the club to be able to cash in from his sale.
He will be free to sign a pre-contract with any club from January as well, and the Reds team are considering the option of bringing him to serve as a cover. He also has the quality and experience to partner Virgil Van Dijk when he returns next season.
Football insider reports that Bayern Munich are not willing to take the chance and will let go of David Alaba in the Jaunty winter window to any of his suitors.
English Premier Legate duo Man United and Chelsea have also shown interest in the signature of David Alaba as they are also in need of a defender while Italian Serie A outfit Juventus is willing to give them a fight.
Meanwhile, manager Jurgen Klopp will have to make do with Rhys Williams as a cover for his defence in subsequent games before the return of Fabinho or the signing of David Alaba should manager Jurgen Klopp insist.
Dortmund finally hand hope to Manchester United on Sancho
Manchester United did not sign England international winger Jadon Sancho last summer transfer window but that does not mean a deal will not go down later in the future.
The Red Devils have made the former Man City academy player their first choice but they were unable to agree on a fee with the German Bundesliga club, Borussia Dortmund and that put an end to the saga.
However, Borussia Dortmund have released a statement hinting that Manchester United could still get Jadon Sancho to sign at the Old Trafford, but made it clear it will only happen in the future.

The club clearly stated that they expected Jadon Sancho to remain at the club for AT LEAST ONE MORE SEASON. This means he could be leaving the club in the coming summer transfer window.
Commentators have expressed the possibility of an agreement between the two clubs for a deal to happen in the next summer window but that was not stated anywhere by either of the clubs.
The Red Devils will now move ahead with their transfer activities by looking out for an alternative so as to rebuild the squad in January.
There is no chance this player will remain at United as conflict with club mounts
English Premier League club Man United goalkeeper Sergio Romero is unhappy at Old Trafford and he is reported to be in conflict with the club for not sanctioning his sale in the last summer transfer window.
Sergio Romero has gone down the pecking order at Old Trafford from the second choice to the third owing to the return of Dean Henderson.
The South American reportedly had offers from several clubs but Manchester United refused to let him leave. Everton were keen give him the opportunity of regular playing time, according to leading journalist Gianluca Di Marzio but the Red Devils denied him the move.
Sergio Romero is unhappy at Manchester United and has been in conflict with the club,. His wife was first to speak out by blasting the Red Devils for not respecting the decision of her husband despite his contribution to the team in the past.

However, it will be a big surprise to see Sergio Romero at Manchester United after the January winter transfer window because he is desperate to leave the club and has suitors both in the Premier League and abroad.
Everton are believed to be interested in Sergio Romero while MLS clubs are also hoping to agree on a deal for him but that will depend on Man United.
David De Gea has been favored for the first-team role despite his unsatisfactory performance last season but the door is opened to Dean Henderson to nail down a regular first-choice shirt.
Manchester United are now stabilized with a number of wins across all competitions.
