Bayern Munich defender David Alaba has been linked with Chelsea in the past, but nothing tangible has come out from this rumour, as the Blues have never really shown real interest in a key Bayern Munich player.
Alaba has blossomed over the years, into being one of the best left-backs in the world, and has won 8 Bundesliga titles, 5 German Cups and a Champions League trophy.
However, reports now claim that the 27-year-old is keen on leaving the Allianz Arena at the end of the season.
Bayern Munich insider Christian Falk, says that the Austrian international will be ready to leave the club at the end of the season.
The left-back position has been a key one that Frank Lampard is keen to strengthen, having depended on Cesar Azpilicueta to play that role at times this season.
However, Marcos Alonso has improved in recent games, while Italy boss Roberto Mancini has urged Emerson Palmieri to leave the club.
