Chelsea are in advanced talks to sign Fiorentina left-back Marcos Alonso, according to Sky Sources. 

A deal is yet to be agreed but it is anticipated that a bid of £24m is imminent from Antonio Conte's Blues.

Alonso, 25, has enjoyed two previous spells in England, spending three seasons at Bolton between 2010 and 2013 and a six-month loan spell with Sunderland in 2014.
