Following three years of nearly exclusive ownership of the left flank, Marcos Alonso’s time at Chelsea might be coming to an end. A relative lack of minutes on the pitch — though still more than Emerson! — combined with Chelsea’s intention to keep getting younger and also fund mega-transfers such as Kai Havertz are the factors at play here.

A reunion with former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte at Inter has been mooted, but Alonso’s path may lead him elsewhere. Over in Spain, Sevilla football director, Monchi is apparently eyeing him, at least according to a report from local outlet Estadio Deportivo.

Sevilla will be losing at least one of their two main left back options, Sergio Reguillón and Sergio Escudero, at the end of the season.
