Bayern Munich star David Alaba has opened up on his allegiance to Arsenal fan – and suggested he is open to a move to the Premier League.
Alaba has made his name in the round leather game as an accomplished left-back considering his exploits with the Bavarians.
The 26-year-old Austrian was part of the treble-winning Bayern Munich under Jupp Heyckens back in 2013/14 season and has gone on to win multiple trophies with the Bundesliga giants.
However, the self-professed Arsenal fan is open to new challenges and believes he would be a good fit in one of the Premier League top clubs.
“I can imagine trying something else but I really feel very comfortable at Bayern,” he told Bild.
“Every year there a new challenges and new objectives and the pressure will always be there. I’m happy in Munich but of course, I can imagine seeing something else [in the future].”
When asked which leagues would be of interest, he added: “Spain, England. In Spain it would be the two big clubs, I guess? Real or Barcelona. Also the big clubs [in England].”
And on Arsenal, he said: “Yes I was [and Arsenal fan as a child]. When you’ve been Arsenal fan as a kid you will be one your whole life in some way.”
Bayern currently sit top of the Bundesliga on goal difference from Klassiker rivals Borussia Dortmund having closed a six-point gap at the mid-season break.
