Transfer News Live: Chelsea make transfer swoop for David Alaba

Chelsea make transfer swoop for David Alaba with Bayern Munich star future up in air as Lampard searches for left-back

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 Austrian international has actually played the majority of his games in the middle of the defence for Bayern this season, despite mastering the left-back position in recent years.
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.

But after seeing RB Leipzig ace Timo Werner and Ajax playmaker Hakim Ziyech complete moves to Stamford Bridge, Alaba could put his faith in a move to Lampard’s new-look Chelsea side.
