Chelsea are reportedly ready to transfer swoop for £60million-rated Bayern Munich full-back David Alaba.
Daily Mirror reports that, the Austria international full-back has become a winter target for the Blues due to the unconvincing form of Emerson Palmieri and Marcos Alonso this season.
Austrian Left-back has looked an area of weakness for the Blues, and there seems little doubt David Alaba would be a significant upgrade on their current opportunities in that area of the pitch.
Frank Lampard’s lack of faith in Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri has been pretty apparent in recent times, with Cesar Azpilicueta moving across into the left-back role in several games.
Clearly, a specialist in the role, such as David Alaba, would be the preferable option for Chelsea, so fans will hope this rather ambitious deal can be completed.
As noted by the Mirror, David Alaba has eighteen months left on his contract with Bayern, so it may be that he could soon be lured away from the Allianz Arena.
The 27-year-old full-back has been a star performer for Bayern for many years now, and is no doubt up there with the finest full-backs in Europe at the moment.
