German giants Bayern Munich are reportedly prepared to allow David Alaba to make the final decision about his future following interest from Premier League giants Liverpool and Chelsea.

While Alaba is regarded as a vital player at the Allianz Arena, the versatile full-back has just 12 months left on his contract and he is yet to extend his stay at the club.

That has led to rumoured regarding the Austria international’s next move as Chelsea, Liverpool and Real Madrid contemplate approaches during the summer transfer window.

According to The Mirror, the Bavarians are happy for the 28-year-old to depart from the club in the summer, providing that they receive a suitable fee.

CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has previously acknowledged that the German champions do not want to lose David Alaba on a free transfer.

Bayern are likely to consider offers in the region of £30m, the same they are looking for midfielder Thiago Alcantara, who also has one year left on his current deal.

The Merseyside Reds have one of the best defensive ends ahead of the next season and considering Andry Robertson stunning form it seems unlikely from the Reds to concentrate on signing Alaba this summer.
