According to Daily Express, the Austrian has reiterated his interest in remaining in Munich, however, he is facing distractions from interested clubs across Europe.

And the German giants withdrew their offer of a new five-year contract back in November, opening the door to a move away from Bayern.

Both Los Blancos and the Reds have shown serious interest in the 28-year-old who is free to speak with prospective new clubs from this month.

But the Merseyside outfit has now taken a step further in securing the player's signature earlier than their rivals.

Italian journalist Romero Agresti claims Liverpool have offered Alaba a contract worth £9 million-a-year for him to join as a free agent in the summer and that will make one of the best-paid players at Anfield with £175,000-a-week wage.
