Alonso craves for new Chelsea deal

Marcos Alonso is open to signing a new deal at Chelsea after his revival under Thomas Tuchel.

The Spanish left-back’s camp had been working on a move away from the Blues after he was frozen out by ex-Stamford Bridge boss Frank Lampard.

But now Alonso, 30, who started his career at Real Madrid, is hoping for a one-year extension to his stay at Chelsea.

He had been looking at a final switch to a Premier League rival, or a return to Serie A where he played for Fiorentina.

But the defender’s situation at Stamford Bridge has improved dramatically since Tuchel’s arrival in January.

Alonso only made three appearances this season while Lampard was in charge at Chelsea.

He was dropped after Chelsea’s 3-3 draw at West Brom in September with this his last match under Lampard.

But Lampard’s dismissal has marked a complete turnaround for the defender.

Alonso has already made six appearances during the last month under Tuchel and has started their last three games which included the 1-1 draw at Southampton.

He also made an instant impact after marking his first game under the new boss with a goal in the home win over Burnley.

The experienced left-back’s days at Chelsea appeared to be numbered but his re-emergence under former Paris Saint-Germain boss Tuchel suggests he sees his future at the club.
