TRANSFER LATEST!! Chelsea Football Club Ready To Sign Alaba

As Ben Chilwell’s Alternative

CHELSEA are reportedly lining up a stunning bid for David Alaba as Frank Lampard steps up his hunt for a new

left-back.

The Athletic claims Chelsea have approached Bayern Munich over a shock move for the world-class talent this summer.

Lampard had been looking to prise England star Ben Chilwell from Leicester City.

But Brendan Rodgers’ £70million valuation of the youngster has put Chelsea off.

And it now appears that Lampard is trying his luck with highly-rated Alaba – who could also be under consideration as Chelsea search for a new centre-back.

The 27-year-old’s contract does not expire until next summer but Bayern will consider cashing in at the end of this season to ensure they get some money in.

Talks have been ongoing over a new deal at the Allianz for more than a year but there has been no breakthrough.

Alaba can play in midfield, making him the perfect addition to many sides.

The superstar, 28, has been at Bayern since 2008 and could fancy a new challenge abroad.

Alaba has made an incredible 380 appearances for Bayern, winning nine Bundesliga titles and the 2013 Champions League.
