Chelsea have already confirmed the signing of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech and the Blues defence is now priority as Frank Lampard’s side has conceded so many goals this season. The coach had to use Cesar Azpilicueta at the Left-back position for much of the season.
The likes of Emerson and Alonso have failed to perform consistently for Frank Lampard and the signing of David Alaba is now priority for Chelsea.
Chelsea have failed in their numerous attempts to sign Ben Chilwell and they have turned their sights to the Bayern Munich defender.
28-year old David Alaba is regarded as one of the world’s best defenders and with just one year left on his Bayern Munich contract, the German club are ready to cash in on the Austrian rather than losing him on a free transfer.
Chelsea are well ahead of the likes of Arsenal in the race to sign the defender as they have held official talks with the player’s agent and also with Bayern’s officials. A deal for the player is said to be underway as both clubs are looking to agree a fee in the region of £45m for the player.
The signing of David Alaba will be a massive addition of quality for Chelsea as the Austrian defender will bring in so much defensive stability to Chelsea. Also, his versatility will be useful to Frank Lampard as the player can play as a Central defender and a midfielder also.
Frank Lampard is building a massive team at Stamford Bridge ahead of next season and the addition of Alaba will be a step closer to challenging with the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool for trophies.
