Barcelona and Chelsea set to agree €30M deal for highly-rated defender in few days
Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso has been linked with a move out of Chelsea after failing to feature in Chelsea’s last 26-games due to a falling out with Frank Lampard.
However, according to recent reports, Barcelona are eyeing a deal to complete the signing of Chelsea outcast defender Marcos Alonso as Ronald Koeman is keen to bring in further defensive reinforcements this January transfer window.
The Spanish international defender has now been linked with a move back to Spain this winter transfer window and the likes of Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have been scrambling to bring the defender back to Spain.
According to reports, Barcelona are very interested in signing the defender on an initial loan deal.
The 29-year Old is usually regarded as a best wing-back in Europe as his impressive performances for Chelsea in that position has earned in a name due to his ability to score important goals from the position.
However, Marcos Alonso’s performances dropped at Chelsea when he was being played as a left-back and he was hugely exposed due to his lack of pace and he struggled defensively for Chelsea and this lead to him being dropped for big money signing Ben Chilwell.
According to reports, Chelsea value Marco Alonso in the region of €30million and Barcelona will have to pay a fee in that range in order to complete the signing of the wing-back.
