According to Daily Mail, Chelsea are preparing an ambitious bid to sign Bayern Munich’s David Alaba.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is keen on strengthening Chelsea’s left-back position after losing faith in Emerson Palmieri and Marcos Alonso.
Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell is Lampard’s first choice but with Leicester reluctant to sell this January, the Blues are seeking other options at left-back.
The Blues are reportedly preparing a £60 million for Alaba, who has made 17 appearances for Bayern Munich this season providing one goal and assist.
The Austria international joined Bayern in 2008 and has won 20 major trophies. His contract with the Bundesliga champions will expire in June 2021.
