Danny Murphy says that the “best option” for Liverpool is David Alaba, if they tend to take advantage from a centre-half player temporarily in the January transfer window.
The Reds proceed to considering their options. Virgil van Dijk has not been present for several months due to knee ligament injury.
Different candidates including Joel Matip, Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams have been requested to provide cover for the Netherlands international.
Another ex-Liverpool star is David James. He takes steps toward Alaba, but also expects for normal condition in football in order to take into accounts the plans.
Huge investment can be planned for higher level players. Alaba, whose contract talks were at Bayern Munich, fits well to the controlling Premier League champions.
Former Reds midfielder Murphy told Stadium Astro: “In terms of his ability, he absolutely fits. He is a super player.
“I suppose what you would have to be looking at from Jurgen Klopp’s perspective is the balance of the squad moving forward when everyone is fit. Or you just look short-term and get the best option in possible, which would be him.
“I would be wanting to do it. You can’t have enough good players. I think he would certainly add quality and strength in depth, but there will be a lot of people interested and a lot of takers for Alaba.”
