Cape Town - Inter Milan are expected to face stiff competition from top
clubs as they set their sights on signing Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso.
On the whole, the defender's switch to the English Premier
League with Chelsea has been a success, but there are now signs his time is up
and a move away could be on the cards.
Alonso's future has been shrouded in doubt after he lost his
place in the Chelsea first-team and there was talk of him leaving in the
January transfer window.
A deal failed to materialise, and he stayed in west London,
but that could change at the end of the season, and he will not be short of
options if Chelsea do decide to cash in.
Inter will be one option as Conte knows the player well from
his time in charge of Chelsea and a reunion at the San Siro is an option.
The Nerazzurri chief may have signed Ashley Young in the
January window, but that is not stopping reports in the Italian press from
suggesting that Alonso remains on his wanted list.
However, they will face strong competition for his services
as there is talk of Serie A title rivals Juventus also showing interest as they
look to bring in experienced back up for current number one left-back Alex
Bayern Munich could also offer the player the chance to
experience life in the German Bundesliga and the former Bolton Wanderers star
could have a tough decision to make if he does move on to pastures new.
