Barcelona are pushing forward to sign Marcos Alonso from Chelsea according to Diario Sport.
Both clubs are in contact and Barcelona are looking forward to capturing the talented defender for less than €10m.
A three-year deal has been agreed with the defender and the player is not ready to report for duty to Chelsea’s pre-season camp which begins next week.
Reports had it that the Spaniard will likely be the third signing for Barcelona this season after the arrival of his teammate Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessie from AC Milan
Barcelona also want to sign his club-mate Cesar Azpilicueta but the move is experiencing a little difficulty as the blues are not likely to sell their captain.
