Chelsea has made its fourth signing of the summer with a deadline day move for Fiorentina defender Marcos Alonso.
With all the deadline day drama surrounding the return of Paris-Saint Germain defender David Luiz, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has signed his first defender in Alonso to a five-year contract through the 2021 season in a £20 million deal. The versatile defender is no stranger to the Premier League, playing under Gus Poyet on loan at Sunderland in 2014. Said Alonso: "It was an easy decision for me to make when I heard the club were interested in signing me. My family and close friends know Chelsea is the club I have dreamed about playing for so I’m really excited about the challenge and I'm looking forward to working with my new team-mates."

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet is still hoping to sign Marcos Alonso but admits a deal is 'close, but not close enough'.

Alonso had a successful loan spell from January of last season, making 16 Premier League appearances including some key performances during Sunderland's remarkable run-in to avoid relegation. The defender returned to Fiorentina in May and the Italian club would like to keep him, but Alonso himself is reportedly keen to return to the Premier League. Gus Poyet is working on a permanent deal ahead of the new season, with the Black Cats desperate to add another full-back to their squad.

In a week with very few good fantasy performers, Marcos Alonso stood out with two clean sheets and an assist.

On top of the two clean sheets and the assist, Alonso added a series of defensive stats that led him to a total of 26 fantasy points in the double gameweek. Sunderland play a winnable match against Swansea on Sunday and Alonso can be a good fantasy pick for the final week of the season. He has shown he can contribute in a variety of categories and can produce even without a clean sheet.
