Barcelona are targeting a summer move for Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso, with Mundo Deportivo suggesting that the London club are already planning for life without him next year.
Thomas Tuchel does have options available to him at left-back in Ben Chilwell and Emerson Palmieri and he is ready to stick with them.
Fali Ramadani, Alonso’s agent, travelled to London last week to meet with Chelsea and get the negotiations off the ground. It is thought that the Spaniard could be signed for a fee of €15m.
Alonso has seven Spanish caps to his name, joined Chelsea in 2016. Since then he has made 212 appearances for the club, scoring 29 goals and contributing 23 assists.
He won the Premier League, the FA Cup, the Europa League, the Champions League, the European Super Cup and the Club World Cup.
