Arsenal fan Alaba open to Premier League move

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.
