Sunderland aim to fight off West Ham for Alonso

Sunderland hope to fight off interest from West Ham United to land Fiorentina fullback Marcos Alonso.

The Daily Mail says the Black Cats had suggested a swap deal for Alonso, who made 20 appearances at the Stadium of Light last season, with Modibo Diakite moving in the opposite direction.

However, Fiorentina are more interested in a swap plus £2million cash after French defender Diakite spent part of the campaign on loan there.

West Ham and Swansea have also shown interest in 23-year-old defender Alonso, especially if the Hammers fail in their bid to land Nice left-back Timothee Kolodziejczak.
