Chelsea transfer target David Alaba is not going anywhere.
That’s according to Bayern Munich head coach Hansi Flick who insists the 27-year-old won’t be leaving Germany.
Blues boss Frank Lampard is ready to splash some cash this month after a transfer ban was lifted.
Austria international Alaba – who is valued at around £60m – has been touted as a potential option.
But Flick claims his star man is not up for grabs.
When quizzed about the Premier League heavyweight’s reported interest, Flick curtly replied: “He is not for sale.”
Lampard desperately needs a new left-back but a sourcing a suitable candidate this month won’t be easy.
Ex-Blues defender Frank Sinclair reckons the club should spend big on Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell.
“For me the obvious player is Ben Chilwell, although Brendan Rodgers won’t want to lose him,” Sinclair told Starsport last month.
“Obviously Frank chopped and changed at left back.
“In recent games Cesar Azpilicueta has played out there, which he did in a title winning side for Chelsea.
“But his strengths are at right back and the left back issues clearly need resolving.
“Chilwell is a full international and in the top two or three English full backs in the country.

“He’s in great form, but whether Leicester will sell him is very debatable.
“Roman Abramovich would need to splash out at least £70m or £80m to bring him in.”
Brendan Rodgers, however, is adamant that Leicester won’t be selling their prized assets this month.
“Nobody will leave here that we don’t want to go,” he said.
“I think we’ve had a couple of enquiries in terms of loans and for some of our younger players.
“But the players that are always talked about and mentioned, there will be nobody going.”
