Blues ace Marcos Alonso wanted by Barcelona

Blues ace Marcos Alonso wanted by Barcelona

Chelsea face a battle to keep hold of Marcos Alonso in the coming months with the news that Ernesto Valverde is after him at Barcelona.

The former Real Madrid youth player has been a revelation at Chelsea where he has shone since his move from Fiorentina and Antonio Conte will not be in any rush to allow him to leave.

Barcelona are apparently after a replacement for left-back Jordi Alba and Valverde has set his sights on Alonso, although he is said to have other targets if Chelsea refuse to sell.

There were a few raised eyebrows when Chelsea paid £25m for Alonso in the summer of 2016 but he has proved to be a bargain and would command a lot more than that fee right now.
