It’s no longer secret that the Blues are interested in signing Bayern Munich defender David Alaba.
According to Eurosport, Chelsea transfer chief Marina Granovskaia is getting ‘regular updates’ on David Alaba’s contract situation.
The Austrian is out of contract in the summer and talks over a new Bayern Munich deal have stalled.
Alaba was offered a new contract at Bayern but after he rejected it, it’s believed the Bundesliga club took it off the table with the defender looking for a new challenge.
Chelsea are preparing to begin negotiations with Alaba in January when clubs from outside Germany can begin negotiations over a pre-contract agreement.
