Atletico Madrid are reportedly ready to launch a fresh bid to sign Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso in the next transfer window. 

The Spanish side failed to finalise a move tried to sign the left-back in 2019, despite Alonso wanting to join them.

At the time, his lack of game time under Maurizio Sarri left the left-back wanting to leave West London.

However, the Premier League reportedly priced Atletico out of a deal by demanding around €40million.

Therefore, Alonso stayed at Stamford Bridge but has played a bit part role, making just 20 appearances this season.

The London club are now ready to part ways with the 29-year-old, who has over three years left on his contract.

Having already lost his place, Chelsea’s interest in signing Ben Chilwell has spelled the end for his Blues career.



A report on TodoFichajes claims Atletico will renew their interest in Alonso after learning of his availability.



It is convenient timing for Diego Simeone, who needs another left-back to support Renan Lodi.

Centre back Mario Hermoso has occasionally provided back up, but Atletico want a recognised left-back.

And they believe they could secure Alonso for no more than €12million, with the player providing vital experience.

However, they will face competition for his signature from a number of other interested European clubs.

Bayern Munich, Juventus and Inter Milan are just some of the teams considering offers.
