At least two London clubs have sent their representatives to the Austrian capital for tonight’s World Cup qualifier between Austria and Georgia at Ernst-Happel-Stadion (Wien).
According to Austrian online sports television LAOLA1 , talent spotters from Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur will be in the stands for the game which begins at 1945 hours.
Bayern Munich wing-back of Nigerian descent David Alaba is likely to feature for the Austrians and might be monitored at close quarters by the two Premier League teams.
Inter Milan , Stuttgart, Hannover , Wolfsburg, Eintracht Frankfurt and scouts from the national associations of Serbia and Wales will also be in attendance at Ernst Happel Stadion.
As previously reported by allnigeriasoccer.com, Alaba was proposed to the Nigeria Football Federation by Austrian-based striker Benedict Akwuegbu before he became cap-tied to Austria.
The Bayern Munich star put in a full shift in Austria’s 1-0 loss to Wales in a World Cup qualifier this past weekend.
