Chelsea set to launch bid for Fiorentina full-back Alonso

by -

Chelsea are lining up an audacious bid to land Fiorentina full-back Marcos Alonso to Stamford Bridge before the transfer market deadline, according to reports in Italy.

Manager Antonio Conte is said to be ready to launch a £17m bid plus add-ons for the 25-year-old, after failing to reach an agreement for AC Milan defender Alessio Romagnoli earlier this week.

The former Bolton youngster could reportedly consider a move back to the Premier League, where he spent three seasons featuring 35 times and scoring 5 goals.
