According to transfer news from Sempre Inter, Inter Milan want out of favour Chelsea star Marcos Alonso. The Spaniard is said to be the first choice for the Italian side ahead of Emerson Palmieri. They want the former Fiorentina man regardless of Achraf Hakimi’s transfer to PSG or Chelsea.

However, right in Thomas Tuchel’s first game, Alonso was restored not only to the starting XI but also to the wing-back role he flourishes in. Since then, he has featured for the side but not on a consistent basis due to Ben Chilwell’s adjustment to the new role.
