Inter Milan ‘determined to land Marcos Alonso’ with Chelsea left-back high on Simone Inzaghi’s transfer radar

CHELSEA could once again be in contact with Inter Milan over a summer transfer deal amid reports the Italians want Marcos Alonso.

The two clubs have already held talks over Romelu Lukaku’s future, with a Blues bid involving Marcos Alonso plus £86million rejected.

But they may find themselves at the negotiating table again if the Nerazzurri decide to push their interest in the 30-year-old defender.

According to website CalcioMercato, the Spaniard is being eyed as Inter freshen up the left side of their defence.

Ashley Young has departed the Serie A champions to leave Matteo Darmian and Ivan Perisic as coach Simone Inzaghi’s remaining options.

It is reported that Inter hope to sell Perisic and replace him with Marcos Alonso.

Due to Chelsea’s likely demand of £17million for the defender, Inter will have to sell before they can buy and Perisic, 32, is a high earner with one year left on his contract.

Elsewhere, Inter are looking to reinforce the right side of their defence with Dutch international Denzel Dumfries favoured to replace Achraf Hakimi.

Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin and Nahitan Nandez of Cagliari are also on their shortlist.

Chelsea will still have Emerson Palmieri and Ben Chilwell as senior left-backs should Marcos Alonso depart, having sold youngster Tino Livramento to Southampton on Monday.

There is reported interest in a summer transfer for Italy star Emerson, who was third choice in Thomas Tuchel’s pecking order last season.

Marcos Alonso’s Stamford Bridge career looked to be over until Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard.

The vast majority of his 17 appearances last season came under the German, including starting the FA Cup final.
