Barcelona rethink move for Chelsea defender Alonso; turn to Tagliafico

Barcelona are rethinking their move for Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso.

Mundo Deportivo says Barcelona are eyeing Ajax star Nicolas Tagliafico as a potential alternative to Alonso.

Tagliafico looks to have plenty of admirers this summer with a number of clubs, including Brighton, fighting for his signature.

The left-back, though, would command a fee of just £4.3million.

Barca are thought to have tried to sign the Argentina international in January and the player has reportedly told Ajax he wants to leave this summer.

Due to Barcelona's financial problems a cut price deal for the Argentine could prove to be a good alternative to Alonso.
