Chelsea fc transfer news: One of games best to be welcomed? as Bayern Munich exit wanted?
Fresh reports have again claimed that Chelsea target David Alaba is considering leaving Bayern Munich in the summer.
Lampard knows that he needs to improve the side if he wants to get back inside the top four and then push on to challenge for a Premier League title and Champions League crown.
And one area of concern for the Blues is the defence, as it is not good enough to challenge the big boys in Europe, so Lampard is reportedly keen to sort that issues out with the possible signing of Alaba, who is regarded as one of the best left-backs in the game right now.
Alaba has 18 months left on his current deal with the German giants, but there has been a few issues with his contract talks and speculation has risen over the past few months that he is seeking a way out of the club after ten years of service with Bayern.
Now German publication BILD have claimed that because talks over a new deal have stalled, he is seriously considering leaving the German giants in the summer to seek a freshs challenge in the game.
Alaba recently admitted that he is interested in a move to the premier League, He told THE TIMES: “We’ll see,”
“I know the Premier League very well because I followed it a lot when I was younger.
“I supported Arsenal. Patrick Vieira was one of my favourite players. At the moment I don’t think too much about it, but I can imagine playing somewhere else.”
Chelsea will surely be making some serious transfer moves during the summer transfer window and trying to improve this squad enough to close that gap to Manchester City and Liverpool, who are the two dominant sides in the Premier League right now.
Alaba will not come cheap if Chelsea do decide to make the move, but to try and sign him for £60 million would be a great bit of business by the club as he is only 27, is one of the best and still has many years left at the top of the game.
He would be a welcomed addition to this Chelsea side and the Premier League
