Marcos Alonso lined up by Barcelona for summer transfer – 21Sports News

Barcelona are looking to sign a new left-back in the summer and are keeping a close eye on Chelsea’s Marcos Alonso, who could leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.

Alonso was behind Ben Chilwell in the left-back pecking order at Chelsea before the Englishman went down with a season-ending knee injury in November, opening the door for more minutes.

He managed just 45 minutes in the first half of Chelsea‘s 2-2 draw with Wolves before being benched for Saul Niguez – a decision which manager Thomas Tuchel stressed was not down to an injury.

Alonso was seen shouting at Tuchel towards the end of the first half with the manager seemingly unimpressed with his performance, and reports have suggested that this bust-up continued into the break and led to his exit from the game.

Amid suggestions that the clash could bring an end to his Chelsea career, numerous sources have reported that Alonso could be on his way to Barcelona this summer.
