Inter Milan coach Conte chasing Chelsea fullback Alonso

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte is chasing a deal for Chelsea fullback Marcos Alonso.

The pair worked together during the Italian's two-year spell in charge of Chelsea in which they won a Premier League and the FA Cup.

Sky Italia says Conte is 'determined' to bring Alonso to the club as he looks to build an even more competitive squad ahead of next season.

However any move could depend on potential outgoings from the Nerrazzuri.

Out-of-favour Inter Milan full-back Dalbert has returned to the club from a loan spell at Fiorentina but is not expected to break into the side.

Should he leave the club this this summer, it is expected Conte will push forward with his pursuit of Alonso.
