ATLETICO ‘EYE ALONSO’
Chelsea outcast Marcos Alonso is being linked with LaLiga leaders Atletico Madrid.
The Spain left-back left-back, 29, has suffered from Ben Chillwell’s £50million arrival from leicester.
Alonso has made a paltry three appearances in all competitions this campaign, all of which have come in the Premier League.
The Spaniard – who joined the west Londoners from Fiorentina in the summer of 2016 – has been absent from Chelsea’s last 11 league matchday squads.
And Spanish TV show El Chiringuito claims the La Liga leaders are set to table a loan bid for the 29-year-old.
They also state the Madrid club is willing to pay 50 per cent of Alonso’s £100,000-a-week wages.
Atletico will reportedly have to battle Inter Milan for Alonso’s services as former Blues boss Antonio Conte is said to be keen on re-signing the full-back.
