Inter Milan planning surprise move for €35m-rated Chelsea left-back

Nerazzurri are reportedly considering Chelsea left-back Marcos Alonso as a potential solution to their troubles at the back-line which in turn would secure a reunion with former coach Antonio Conte.

Spain international has played 13 games so far this campaign for the London club under Frank Lampard, but he hasn’t even been called up to the squad for the last five Premier League matches.

In turn, there will perhaps now be doubts over his future at Chelsea with that lengthy snub in mind, and speculation in Italy is suggesting that a reunion with Antonio after their stint together at Stamford Bridge could be on the cards in winter.

Marcos has emerged on the transfer radar of the Nerazzurri, as they look to add quality and depth in the left-back position as Kwadwo Asamoah continues to be troubled by a knee injury.

With Inter Milan going well at the top of the Serie A table and facing a decisive encounter in the UCL this week to determine if they will advance to the knockout stage, they’ll likely be eager to add reinforcements in winter to ensure that they continue to compete on multiple fronts in the second half of the season.

Time will tell if Blues firstly give Alonso the green light to move on, and then in turn, if they agree on terms with Inter on a deal if the 28-year-old defender is considered as the ideal solution by the Serie A club to their problem at left-back.

With Emerson Palmieri and Cesar Azpilicueta playing on the left side, it appears as though Frank has enough quality and options to allow Spaniard to move on.
