According to Sky Sport Italia Fiorentina accepted Chelsea‘s € 27m ( with add-ons included) for their full-back Marcos Alonso.

The Spanish defender, 25, grew up in Real Madrid academy and already played in England, having worn the shirt of Bolton between 2010 and 2013 and of Sunderland, on loan from Fiorentina, in 2014.

This signing would allow Cesar Azpilicueta to play again on the right lane, while Branislav Ivanovic could move at the centre of the defence, so to solve the lack of centre-back in the squad.

Antonio Conte analysed the start of the season with Chelsea FC official website and, of course, he is satisfied about how the season began, but there are some important concepts he wants to stress:

“I’m pleased to score the goals, it’s always important to score one more goal than your opponent, but to keep a clean sheet is also important for the confidence of the whole team.

‘When you keep a clean sheet, the whole team works very well, not only the defenders. When we concede a goal, all of the team concedes a goal.

‘If I am able to choose our way to defend it is to go forward and not behind. When you stay too much behind, there is the long ball and anything can happen. We are improving this aspect.”

Hector joined Chelsea last summer in a surprise deadline day move but he remained back on loan at Reading last season: after joining the squad for the pre-seasons tours, new boss Antonio Conte decided to send him on loan to Germany to improve his playing style.
