Chelsea want to acquire the services of David Alaba.
David Alaba and speculations surrounding him have been doing rounds in the transfer market. The recent list of suitors just keeps increasing with time. The latest club to enter negotiations with the defender’s agents is Chelsea. The London club have been looking to sign him for quite some time now, as they look to strengthen their defense further. His contract ends on June 30, 2021. At the moment there is no apparent possibility that he will accept Bayern Munich’s renewal offer to continue in Germany.
The Austrian national’s agent, Pini Zahavi, has offered him to several elite clubs including the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, and PSG. Although these clubs would still consider him as an option; his wage demands are pretty heavy to accommodate currently. Chelsea management intends to meet with the Alaba representative in the coming January. They intend to convince the footballer that Chelsea is the ideal destination in the future, as pointed by AS.
At Stamford Bridge, they trust that the offer they make will put them in pole position on the long list of interested parties. Blues’ boss Frank Lampard has shown a massive interest in securing his services mostly because of his highly versatile approach. He can slot in as a left-back, center back as well as a central midfielder. A potential partnership of David Alaba and Thiago Silva looks extremely strong on paper; further reinforced by their new signing, Edouard Mendy.
Lampard sees Alba as an option on the left side but preferably wants to have him to play centrally. The intention of Marina Granovskaia is that her offer will be important in convincing him.
As for the impact on the squad, pressure piles up on Marcos Alonso as well as Emerson. The left-backs are alert to probably facing the axe should this transfer take place. They have already been pressurized by the arrival of Ben Chilwell. What happens remains to be seen in a rat race for the versatile Austrian.
