Chelsea directors are’ready to attack’ if Marcos Alonso is offered a transfer.
Thomas Tuchel has favored Chelsea winger Marcos Alonso in the early part of the season.
Inter Milan is rumored to be rekindling their interest in Chelsea winger Marcos Alonso. For the Serie A club, the 30-year-old has been a long-term target.
Inter Milan were interested in signing Alonso this summer, and he was even offered in part-exchange for Romelu Lukaku.
Despite Ben Chilwell looking to be a shoe-in for the post, the player stayed in west London and started the season as Chelsea’s first-choice left-winger.
Alonso kicked off his season with a spectacular free-kick against Crystal Palace on the first day of the season, earning him a starting spot in the Blues’ following five Premier League games.
Last month, he even captained the team in a 3-0 win over Aston Villa.
Alonso, on the other hand, has had a difficult week, with dismal performances in Chelsea’s 1-0 losses to Manchester City and Juventus, respectively.
For the first time this season, he was benched for Saturday’s game against Southampton, and his replacement, Chilwell, scored a spectacular goal in a 3-1 victory.
Inter are desperate for a left-sided wide player, according to Tutto Mercato, and are’ready to assault’ with another attempt for Alonso.
Chelsea will have to make a significant decision if Inter comes calling.
Alonso has been in and out of the club in recent seasons, and after falling out of favor under previous manager Frank Lampard, he was extensively linked with a move elsewhere.
Last season, he was a distant second in Tuchel’s pecking order before receiving a surprising return after impressing in pre-season training this summer.
Chilwell, who is six years his junior, is anticipated to take over at Stamford Bridge as the left wing-back in the long run.
Alonso doesn’t have many years left at the top of the game and could take advantage of the possibility to make one last big-money move.
His contract is slated to expire in 2023, and his strong start to the season should have increased his market value.
Chelsea may be better off cashing in on the Spain international and focusing on the future.
During his team’s 3-0 win over Tottenham earlier this season, Alonso was booed.
However, the former Sunderland footballer conceded that he had a good time. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
