- David Alaba of Bayern Munich has emerged as target for Chelsea
- Chelsea gaffer Frank Lampard wants to bolster his squad for next season
- Alaba is one of the best defenders in the world and can also play in midfield
Bayern Munich defender David Alaba could be heading to the Premier League this summer as Chelsea are reportedly eyeing a big move to sign the 28-year-old superstar.
With the 2019/20 Premier League season remaining seven games to end, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is already planning for the coming term with the recruitment of good players.
According to the Athletic, the Blues' chiefs have already approached Bayern Munich for the possibility of them signing David Alaba at the end of the season.
Chelsea were initially interested in signing Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell, but the Foxes' asking price is not what the Blues can pay and they had to pull off.
And now that Chelsea are trying their luck to lure David Alaba to Stamford Bridge, they will have to make impressive offer that can convince Bayern chiefs.
The Blues must also have at the back of their minds that David Alaba is not a player they can easily get considering the fact that he has played in mostly all the games this term for Bayern.
His current contract with Bayern Munich will expire at the end of next season and the club may decide to rake in big cash for his signature.
