Furthermore, ESPN report that Alonso's agent is currently in London to speak to the Chelsea board regarding his future.

He is Barcelona's number one target this summer for the left-back position and set to look for a conclusion to the transfer saga.

Chelsea are set to have new owners in place by the end of the week, with the future of several players set to be sorted when Todd Boehly's consortium complete their takeover of the club.

It remains to be seen as to whether Alonso will be allowed to depart, with it being dependent on the transfer fee the Blues demand.
