Bayern Munich defender David Alaba, who has been linked with Chelsea, opens the door on a potential move to the Premier League.

Bayern Munich defender David Alaba has opened the door on a potential move to the Premier League.

The 27-year-old has made over 350 appearances for Bayern since debuting in 2010, including 22 outings in all competitions during the 2019-20 campaign.

Alaba primarily operates as a left-back but has played in central defence on a number of occasions this season due to his team's problems in that area of the field.

Chelsea have recently been credited with an interest in the Austria international, who has revealed that he "can imagine playing somewhere else" other than the Allianz Arena.

"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 favourite players. At the moment I don't think too much about it, but I can imagine playing somewhere else."

Alaba, who will see his contract with Bayern expire at the end of next season, is also believed to be interesting both Barcelona and Real Madrid.
