Inter Milan leading race for £100,000-a-week Chelsea left-back

The London giants left-back Marcos Alonso has been mentioned as a possible transfer target for Inter Milan. The Nerazzurri endured a difficult summer, having lost Antonio Conte, Achraf Hakimi and Romelu Lukaku. It was hardly a perfect way to build upon their first scudetto win for a decade.

Still, Inter Milan have won their opening two games in Serie A, suggesting that all hope is not lost under new boss Simone Inzaghi. The Nerazzurri still have a strong squad, with there seemingly being intent on bolstering it further when the transfer window reopens.

It may look bizarre to be talking transfers so soon after the window came to a close, but the Nerazzurri are already working on their future transfer plans. The report notes that both Aleksandar Kolarov and Ivan Perisic could depart next summer when their contracts expire. The left-sided pair will need replacing.

It’s claimed that the Blues left-wing-back Marcos Alonso is a possible option for the Nerazzurri, as well as Eintracht Frankfurt’s Filip Kostic and VfB Stuttgart’s Borna Sosa. Marcos in particular would be a superb signing for Inter, with Alonso having continually proven his attacking threat since signing for the Blues in the summer of 2016.
