Chelsea continues to move the ball market in this stoppage due to COVID-19.
Their first search was for a goalkeeper and Donnarumma, as well as Ter Stegen and Onana, are on their radar. Now, however, manager Frank Lampard decided to look at his defensive line.
According to the newspaper “The Sun”, the English club is aiming for a left-back for next season, and names like Alex Telles and Ben Chilwell are being considered.
However, it appears that Bayern Munich’s David Alaba is the first in Lampard’s list.
That’s because, the Austrian performs other functions in the field and is always helping his team with his best, be it in the left-back or in the midfield.
However, in order for that to take him from Bayern Munich, the blues from London will have to fight against other giants in Europe and with the Germans themselves.
Alaba has a contract with Bayern Munich only until the middle of 2021, which drew the attention not only of Chelsea but of clubs like Juventus, Manchester City, PSG, Manchester United, and Barcelona.
With so many teams after him, the Blues from London are trying to speed up contacts with both the player and the Bavarian team to seek an agreement.
However, there is a consensus in Germany that the athlete is fundamental in Hans-Dieter Flick’s style of play, and wants to try to extend his contract.
Which means that, after the return from training and games, Bayern Munich will inevitably make a new proposal for Alaba, so Chelsea are running out of time.
With the rise of Alphonso Davies, a young Canadian of only 19 years old, David Alaba lost space on the left-wing.
Because of that, he started to have space as a defender – a position learned back in Pep Guardiola’s era at Bayern -, and in total, he added 28 games with the shirt of Bayern Munich this season
