The Viola are set to make a major deadline day sale with Marcos Alonso heading for the exit door.
Marcos Alonso will be Antonio Conte’s first Serie A signing as Chelsea’s boss. The Barcelona youth product who joined Fiorentina in 2013 will depart the club tomorrow for around €27 million, sources from England say.
The Daily Telegraph revealed the Spaniard is already in London will undergo the medical visit in the morning before being officially unveiled.
After failed attempts to land Koulibaly, Maksimovic and even Bonucci, the Blues have turned to a fullback to reinforce the backline.
Chelsea have won the first three games of the Barclays’ Premier League this year, and Conte has received modest additions to compete domestically.
Alonso brings a few years of European experience during his time with Fiorentina, in which they reached the Europa League semifinals in 2015.
