Marcos Alonso: Atletico Madrid in talks to sign Chelsea full-back on loan

Marcos Alonso has fallen out of favour under Frank Lampard

Atletico currently lead La Liga and Diego Simeone has used both Renan Lodi and Yannick Carrasco as left-sided full-backs this season. Simeone has often employed a five-at-the-back formation and Alonso is considered well-suited to a wing-back role.

Both Alonso and Emerson were previously of long-term interest to Inter Milan but, while the latter has attracted interest from both the Premier League and abroad, he is expected to remain at Chelsea until at least the summer in the event of Alonso’s departure.
