Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is keen on keeping Marcos Alonso at the club despite interest from Barcelona, according to Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo via Daily Express.

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia was open to selling the 30 year old left wing-back but Tuchel has stepped in to block the move.

Barcelona are on the hunt for a left-back this summer as they look to build strength-in-depth, and had reportedly earmarked Alonso as a top target for the position.

Despite being second choice to Ben Chilwell, Tuchel regards Alonso as an important player in the team due to his versatility, with the 30 year old able to play as a full-back, wing-back or on the left of a back three.
