This could be interesting, very interesting. Austrian site Salzburg.com has suggested that Arsenal have put Bayern Munich star David Alaba on their wish list.
The site suggests that Arsene Wenger is hoping to lure the 20 year old who played in the Champions League final, to The Emirates by offering a central midfield position. For Bayern he has largely been used as left back.
Alaba is certainly tough in the tackle, and his versatility could prove very useful to The Gunners (he can also play on both wings). But a central midfield role? On one hand it seems very unlikely, but then again the French man has a habit of taking players and finding new positions for them, so I guess this is just about believable.
Alaba’s contract is up in the summer of 2015 and we obviously don’t know how highly he features in Pep Guardiola’s plans.
File this as unlikely, but one to keep an eye on.
