Marcos Alonso is reportedly a transfer target for Barcelona this summer

Barcelona are interested in signing Chelsea left-back Marcos Alonso, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Alonso, who has been with the Blues since signing from Fiorentina in 2016, is attracting interest from Spanish giants Barcelona.

He was brought into the fold at Stamford Bridge by Antonio Conte.

A polarising figure, the Spaniard has continually proven himself to be a serious dangerous tool at left-wing-back – one of the best in the business.

He’s a bit of an enigma, which is why he’s been frozen out at Chelsea, but it’s no surprise to hear of interest from clubs in signing him this summer.

However, a report from Spain blamed that, Barcelona are keen on bringing him to the Nou Camp this summer.

The report raises doubts over the future of Junior Firpo, which would leave Barca in need of signing a new left-back.

It’s claimed that Barca already reached an agreement with Alonso over personal terms in January, but the move never materialised.

Six months down the line, Alonso, who is valued at £10.8m on Transfermarkt. could be heading to Barcelona.
