Bayern Munich defender David Alaba wanted by Barcelona

Barcelona have been linked with a summer move for versatile Bayern Munich defender David Alaba by France Football.

The Austrian international is predominantly a left-back and the Catalan giants are keen to add competition for long-term full-back Jordi Alba.

Alaba’s future at the Bavarian club is also under scrutiny with multiple reports suggesting that Atletico Madrid defender Lucas Herandez will join Bayern this summer.

The 26-year-old – whose current deal runs through until 2021 – has made 335 first-team appearances for the German champions since making his debut in 2009 and has scored 28 goals in that timeframe.

A host of full-backs have been linked with a summer switch to the Camp Nou including Arsenal’s Nacho Monreal and Filipe Luis of Atletico, who are both out of contract this summer.
