Stoke move to beat Fiorentina for Bolton fullback Alonso
The Daily Mail says Stoke are making a bid to sign Bolton left-back Alonso in a £500,000 deal.
Alonso is close to sealing a pre-contract move to Italian giants Fiorentina that will see him head to Italy in June.
But Tony Pulis is in desperate need of a left-back and is hoping to persuade Alonso to stay in England instead.
Fiorentina are willing to pay £200,000 to land the Spaniard, 22, before the transfer window closes.
