FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has reportedly asked the Catalan giants to make a move for a Bayern Munich star for next season.
According to Spanish publication Diario Gol, Messi wants Barca to sign Bayern star David Alaba in an attempt to improve their defence.
The Catalan giants' main target is still reportedly Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann and the same report claims they are confident of landing the forward.
Diario Gol report that one of the main reasons Alaba would be a suitable acquisition is the player's versatility.
Under Pep Guardiola at Bayern and for the Austrian national side, Alaba has featured at left-back, centre-back and as a holding midfielder.
Alaba has made 296 appearances for the Bavarians, scoring 25 goals and providing 38 assists.
