Transfer News: Chelsea to offload Marcos Alonso to Inter Milan

According to transfer news from Daily Star, Chelsea are planning to offload Marcos Alonso to Inter Milan. The Blues are after Achraf Hakimi and could use the chance to ship off the Spanish defender in a swap deal.

Alonso has had a stop-start career at Chelsea so far. The 30-year-old played his best football in the first two seasons after joining when Antonio Conte was in charge and used him as a wing-back. Over the next two years, Alonso struggled to play in a back four as a conventional full-back.

However, right in Thomas Tuchel’s first game, Alonso was restored not only to the starting XI but also to the wing-back role he flourishes in. Since then, he has featured for the side but not on a consistent basis due to Ben Chilwell’s presence.

Chelsea’s interest in Achraf Hakimi is nothing new. The Blues are trying to get the Inter Milan defender for a cash sum of £56m. However, Thomas Tuchel is hoping to use his opportunity to offload the Spaniard to Inter. The Italian champions are also said to be open to signing Alonso.

Alonso enjoyed two initial fruitful years at Chelsea after which he has largely been on the periphery. With Chilwell flourishing at the club, there is a good chance that Alonso might struggle for game time. A possible swap deal to send him to Inter in return for Hakimi might not be shabby.
