Chelsea have made inquiry to try and sign up Bayern Munich star

Frank Lampard has reportedly made an inquiry to Bayern Munich about the availability of David Alaba this summer.

Lampard knows that he needs to improve the side if he wants to get back inside the top four and then push on to challenge for a Premier League title and Champions League crown.

And one area of concern for the Blues is the defence, as it is not good enough to challenge the big boys in Europe, so Lampard is reportedly keen to sort that issues out with the possible signing of Alaba, who is regarded as one of the best left-backs in the game right now.

Alaba has 12 months left on his current deal with the German giants, but there has been a few issues with his contract talks and speculation has risen over the past few months that he is seeking a way out of the club after ten years of service with Bayern.

Now the ATHLETIC have reported that we have made contact with Bayern Munich about a possible deal for Alaba, as they seek a cheaper alternative to the very expensive Ben Chilwell.

It is claimed that Leicester know the value of their top players and will demand a fee close to the £80 million mark for Chilwell, who has become one of the best players in Europe, but we only want to pay around the £45 million for the player.

Alaba would be a great signing for the club and would be more than welcome guys.
