Atletico Madrid launching €30M bid for Chelsea fullback Alonso

Chelsea fullback Marcos Alonso is wanted by Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone.

With Filipe Luis pushing to leave Atletico for PSG, Simeone is demanding a replacement be found - and he favours Alonso.

AS says Atletico are planning a €30m bid for the defender.

However, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is unlikely to agree to Alonso's sale, with the Spaniard proving the matchwinner against Arsenal on Saturday.

In Luis' case, Atletico will not consider losing the Brazilian unless they can sign a replacement.
