Chelsea set asking price for left-back?

Alonso set for Chelsea exit?

Chelsea are reportedly prepared to sanction the sale of Marcos Alonso, provided any club matches their £29m asking price next month.

The 28-year-old has made only seven league appearances for the Blues this term and he has not made the squad in the past six top-flight fixtures.

As such, it is quite clear that the he is out-of-favour under manager Frank Lampard and Corriere dello Sport claims that he could head through the exit door at the beginning of 2020.

It is added that both Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan hold an interest in signing the Spaniard but they would need to meet the Blues' £29m price tag for the left-sided defender.

The former Fiorentina man made 120 appearances for Chelsea in his first three seasons with the Blues, where he was the undisputed choice in the left-back or left wing-back spot.

Chelsea are currently utilising Cesar Azpilicueta and Emerson on the left side of the defence but Lampard has been fancied to land a new signing for the position next month.
