Chelsea have completed the £20million signing of Fiorentina left-back Marcos Alonso.
Marcos Alonso has signed a five-year contract with the Blues.
After last featuring in the Premier League with Sunderland two years ago, Alonso revealed his delight at returning to play in England.
“I’m very happy. It’s a step up in my career and I think this is the perfect place for me to continue developing,” revealed the 25-year-old. “It’s time for me to win some titles.
“It was an easy decision for me to make when I heard the club were interested in signing me.
The Blues have also been linked with re-signing Brazil defender David Luiz, whom they sold to Paris St Germain for £50million prior to the 2014 World Cup, ahead of Wednesday’s closure of the transfer window.
