Chelsea are planning an audacious move for Bayern Munich right back Philipp Lahm. Carlo Ancelotti is known to be a huge admirer of the German international and is known to have harboured hopes of capturing the Bayern Munich man this summer.

The 26 year old has plied his trade at the Bavarian club since the age of 11, bar a two year period on loan to Stuttgart, and may well be ready for a new challenge, especially as his side appear to be in free fall this term having collected just two wins thus far this season.

Ancelotti has been linked with moves for replacement right backs despite the consistent displays from Serbian international Branislav Ivanovic. The Stamford Bridge boss is hoping to tempt Lahm to west London with a significant pay increase but knows that Louis Van Gaal will fight tooth and nail to keep the pint sized attack minded wide man.

Philipp Lahm can operate either as a standard right back or in a more advanced wing back role and can also play out on the left. A move for the vastly experienced Munich born star could cost as much as £24m but with Roman Abramovich’s backing such a fee would not represent a problem for the Premier League champions.
