Serie A giants eyeing move for €30m-rated Chelsea full-back

Inter Milan could well go back in for Chelsea full-back Marcos Alonso in the upcoming summer transfer market according to a recent report from an Italian website Calciomercato.com.

The club showed a keen interest in the Spanish defender during the recent January transfer market but were put off making a move for him after Chelsea called for a sum of €30 million, which was far more than Antonio Conte’s side were willing to pay for him.

Come the end of the campaign, Alonso, who has struggled to make it into the roster for league matches for a few months now, could attempt and force a move away from the PL outfit in order to be reunited with Antonio, who he worked with at Chelsea.

Marcos has been with the Blues since the summer of 2016 and is under contract with the west Londoners until the end of the 2022/23 season.

This season Marcos has made 15 appearances in all competitions to date. In just under 1200 minutes on the field, the majority of which came at the start of the term, Alonso has registered one goal and three assists.

In other news, Frank Lampard has insisted there is no tension with the club’s board over him dropping Spain shot-stopper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Asked if he is on a collision course with the management over dropping Kepa, Frank replied: “Certainly not. That fills a lot of headlines for people.

“I’m absolutely together with all the club and the board, because we all want the best and I’m paid to make decisions.”
