However, according to the Daily Mail, Liverpool and Chelsea have reportedly joined the list of clubs wanting to sign the 27-year-old defender.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is said to be in the market for a new centre-back and left-back, the arrival of Alaba would fulfil his requirements in both roles.
