Chelsea have confirmed the signing of left-back Marcos Alonso from Fiorentina on a permanent deal reportedly worth around £23 million.
Marcos Alonso, former Bolton Wanderer and Sunderland full-back, 25, has become Chelsea's fourth summer signing. His arrival sparks an intriguing scenario as Cesar Azpilicueta will now face competition for minutes. Azpilicueta, who made 37 appearances for Chelsea last season, has served as Antonio Conte's starting left-back through the first three matches of the season. Marcos Alonso, who made 31 appearances for Fiorentina in 2015-16, will likely slot into a bench role during his early goings at Stamford Bridge. However, arriving on a such a high fee is a sign he could be handed a shot at a starting XI role. This is a situation to monitor moving forward. Aug 31 - 12:26 PM
