Chelsea inviting offers for Marcos Alonso

Chelsea are inviting offers for Marcos Alonso ahead of the summer market.

Calciomercato.com says Alonso has dropped down the pecking order this season under Frank Lampard and Inter Milan will act upon their initial interest in the January transfer window by making a bid.

But Chelsea won't make special allowances for their former manager Antonio Conte and have raised their valuation of the 29-year-old Alonso to £25million (€30m).

Such a price tag is likely to deter Inter from making a move, with the Italians looking to continue overhauling their squad with youthful stars.

Conte has already made the move to bring in veteran full-back Ashley Young in from Manchester United, though the transfer was completed for the paltry sum of £1.5million.
