FRANK LAMPARD is targeting wantaway Bayern Munich star David Alaba for a New Year transfer, according to reports. The Austrian defender, 28, has six months remaining on his current contract at the Allianz Arena. And it does not look as though he will sign an extension.

But the Blues may jump the queue into pole position by making a January swoop, rather than waiting until the end of the season.That would mean having to pay a transfer fee but Bayern would surely rather get some cash for their long-serving ace.
