Inter Milan linked with surprise move for Marcos Alonso
Inter Milan are discussing a move to sign Marcos Alonso.
The reports in Italy suggested that Inter Milan are linked with surprise move for Chelsea left-back Marcos Alonso.
The 28-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Spain international joined Chelsea from Fiorentina for a fee in the region of 23 million euros in August 2016. His contract expires in the summer of 2023.
Alonso has played 85 times for Chelsea since signing from Fiorentina, scoring 5 goals and creating 7 assists.
As a member of Spain national football team, Marcos Alonso won 3 caps.
The 28-year-old is widely regarded as a key transfer target for Inter this winter.
Antonio Conte is a long term admirer of Alonso and believes he can get the most out of the Spain international.
Inter are desperate to make an impact in the winter transfer window.
Marcos Alonso would provide a good variety to Inter’s defense.
According to Football Italia, “Inter have reportedly made Marcos Alonso their main target to fill the left-back position, but Chelsea are allegedly asking for €40m to complete a transfer. Antonio Conte brought the former Fiorentina player to London and the Gazzetta dello Sport claims he has made the Spanish defender his priority also during the transfer window this winter. The newspaper claims the price could stand in Conte’s way, as the Blues are not ready to let their man go for anything less than €40m. Because of the high cost, the outlet reveals that Inter are considering making a move for PSG defender Layvin Kurzawa, as Conte is reported to be concerned about the consistency of injury prone Kwadwo Asamoah and not overly convinced about Cristiano Biraghi. Alonso, who will turn 29 later this week, has only played eight games in the League under Frank Lampard this term, but was a key member at Stamford Bridge when Conte won the league in 2016-17.”
