I said 'yes' to Chelsea straight away - Marcos Alonso

Marcos Alonso has revealed that he jumped at the chance to join Chelsea.

The Spanish left-back joined the Blues from Italian club Fiorentina for around £23million on deadline day and admitted it was not a tough decision to make the move to Stamford Bridge.

"I am very happy to be here and to be back in the Premier League," Alonso told Chelsea TV.

"It is a big decision, a big step in my career.

"I had the chance before, but I think it was a good thing for me to stay at Fiorentina. But when I knew about Chelsea, I said 'yes' in the first second I knew.

"I'm more ready than before and this is a very big thing. I think it's time to win trophies now and give my best to help the team.

"We have to fight for every competition. We have top players, we're a top club so we're going to try and win every competition we play."
