Ben Chilwell is said to be on Chelsea's list of top target this summer, but with the club insisting on a £70m for the player, Chelsea have made an approach for David Alaba as a cheaper option to him.
David Alaba has been a consistent starting eleven for Bayern Munich over the years and have got the experiences needed to play in the English Premier League.
The Bayern Munich defender plays majorally as a left back but have also been used as a central defender, as a midfielder and as a winger in the club, hence making him an utility player. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
However, Ben Chilwell is a young left back, with the potential and tendency of staying with Chelsea for a very long period, if signed by Chelsea. But David Alaba has few years to use in the footballing world, as he is at the peak of his career and age no longer on his side.
