Chelsea are in the hunt to sign Bayern Munich defender David Alaba on a free transfer, according to a report.
Chelsea are reportedly 'definitely in the mix' for David Alaba as the versatile defender seemingly prepares to leave Bayern Munich on a free transfer.
The 28-year-old's contract at the Allianz Arena is due to expire at the end of June, and it looks increasingly likely that he will be seeking pastures new for the 2021-22 campaign.
A number of clubs, including Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool and Real Madrid, are said to be interested in signing the defender.
Meanwhile, a recent report claimed that Alaba is on the verge of being offered a lucrative contract by Manchester City to make the move to the Etihad Stadium.
However, according to Sky Sports News, Chelsea are also firmly in the hunt for the Austria international, who has scored twice in 24 appearances for the European champions this season.
The nine-time Bundesliga winner is currently free to enter into discussions with foreign clubs as he has entered the final six months of his deal with Der FCB.
