Sunderland table improved offer for Fiorentina fullback Alonso

Sunderland have made a new offer for Fiorentina fullback Marcos Alonso.

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet wants to bring Alonso back to Wearside this season after last term's loan success.

After attempting a straight swap involving Modibo Diakite, TMW says Sunderland returned to the negotiating table on the weekend.

The latest offer is Diakite plus €2.5 million in exchange for Alonso.

For his part, former Real Madrid defender Alonso would be happy to return to England long-term.
