The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been impressed with Marcos Alonso’s performances this season…
The Spaniard has come in and made an immediate impact, which is far more than can be said for other players that have been brought in to reinvigorate his position, for example Filipe Luis.
However, it seems as though Antonio Conte is not satisfied with what he has at his disposal, with extra reinforcements seemingly wanted by the Italian.
According to the Mirror, one such replacement comes in the form of Schalke defender Sead Kolasinac, with the Blues reportedly ‘confident’ of securing a deal to take the defender to Stamford Bridge. Indeed, a host of clubs are reportedly keen, but it is Chelsea that are desperate to secure a deal.
Kolasniac is an attacking defender has built up quite the reputation for his offensive attributes. Indeed, this season he has bagged 5 assists, which highlights that fact nicely. Marcos Alonso has managed just 2, so the attacking differences between the pair are clear.
However, with Alonso, Nathan Ake and now potentially Kolasinac in the fold on the left-hand side – Conte has some big decisions to make.
