Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid are reportedly interested in the signing of Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso and are ready to move for him in the January 2021 transfer.

Marcos Alonso has not been having it rosy this term at Stamford Bridge under manager Frank Lampard who is giving Ben Chilwell more active games than the Spaniard.

So far this season, Marcos Alonso has played only three games for Chelsea in the Premier League and Atletico Madrid want to take advantage of his lack of active game to lure him to Spain.

According to the report on UK Sun, Atletico Madrid chiefs want Marcos Alonso on a loan move from Chelsea and they are ready to pay half of his weekly wages at Chelsea.

Chelsea on the other hand are said to be against the idea of Alonso moving to Italy which has given Atletico Madrid the edge.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are preparing for their next Premier League game which is a boxing day fixture against London rivals Arsenal.
