Chelsea lining up surprise move for 28-year-old Bundesliga star

Chelsea will reportedly hold discussions with the agent of Bayern Munich versatile defender David Alaba when the January transfer will be re-opened.

Alaba has still not signed a new contract at the Allianz Arena, and as it stands, the Austria international will be free tot talk with foreign club in January.

A number of teams, including Chelsea’s Premier League rivals, Liverpool and Serie A champions Juventus have been credited with an interest in the 28-year-old defender, who remains a key figure for the European champions.

However, according to Bild journalist Christian Falk, Alaba’s agent Pini Zahavi will hold talks with Chelsea in January about a possible switch to the West London club.

Falk, though, suggests that Paris Saint-Germain are also firmly in the hunt for the 28-year-old defender who will seemingly have the pick of a number of top European clubs if he decides to seek pastures new.

The 28-year-old versatile defender has played 398 games for Bayern Munich in all competitions, winning nine Bundesliga trophies and two Champions League tittles during his time at the Allianz Arena and now its seems that he is open for a new challenge and Premier League is likely to be his next destination.
