- According to The Times, Marcos Alonso is keen on ending his spell with Chelsea after Frank Lampard gave him a furious dressing down following a 3-3 draw against West Bromwich.
- The Spaniard is said to be eager to join Inter Milan, with Antonio Conte interested in his services.
- Alonso was at fault for two of three goals Chelsea conceded in the first half against West Bromwich; along with Mateo Kovacic, he was subbed off at half-time.
- According to The Athletic’s David Ornstein, while the Croat joined his teammates in the stands, the left-back tried to watch the second half on the team coach rather than with the rest of the substitutes.
- As per the source, Lampard handed Alonso a furious dressing down in front of his teammates after the incident, with Chelsea players reportedly describing the boss ‘the angriest they’ve ever seen him.
Marcos Alonso could link up with former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte for a second time after feeling Frank Lampard’s wrath last weekend, according to The Times.
The Blues left back was savaged by his manager in front of the rest of the squad after returning to the team bus following his half-time substitution during their 3-3 draw away at West Brom.
And Alonso could now be on the move before the transfer window shuts next week, with Conte keen to work with him again at the San Siro.
The Times claim that the Spaniard is interested in a switch to Italy after being frozen out for large chunks of last season and falling down the pecking order following the arrival of £50million Ben Chilwell earlier this summer.
Alonso enjoyed arguably the best season of his career under Conte, playing as a left wing back in his 3-4-3 formation as Chelsea won the Premier League title in 2016-17.
Conte has already reunited with Victor Moses at Inter, who he converted into a right wing back for his title-winning team at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea are keen to cash in on either Alonso or Emerson Palmieri this week after Lampard landed Chilwell as his new first-choice left back.
Inter have also shown an interest in the former Roma star, but it remains to be seen if they will be able to agree a deal for either defender before the window closes.
