Chelsea target David Alaba hints at Premier League move

Bayern Munich left-back David Alaba is not ruling out a Premier League move in the near future.

The Austrian international's contract expires at the end of the 2020/21 campaign and is yet to sign an extension, opening doors for a Premier League move.

The 27-year-old, who joined Bayern Munich as a 16-year-old has ruled out playing for any team in the Bundesliga, whom he has represented for over 350 matches. 

“We’ll see [what happens in the future],” Alaba told The Times. 

“I know the Premier League very well because I followed it a lot when I was younger. I supported Arsenal. Patrick Vieira was one of my favorite players.

“At the moment I don’t think too much about it, but I can imagine playing somewhere else.”

He, however, noted that he is fully focused on his time at the German champions at the moment, and was not worried over where he will play next. 

“I am very focused on Bayern Munich,” Alaba continued. “We really want to reach our goals and I really want to help the team.

“We’re in a good way to reach our goals in the Bundesliga, in the Pokal [cup] and maybe also to make a dream come true in the Champions League," he added.

Chelsea have been credited with an interest in Alaba, who can cost an upward of £50million.

Bayern are currently second in the Bundesliga standings, two points off leaders RB Leipzig. 

They can, however, reclaim top spot on Sunday if they win their match at hand against FC Koln.
