Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte reportedly wants to sign Marcos Alonso as a potential injury replacement for Ghana international Kwadwo Asamoah, Ghanasoccernet revealed.
According to Turin newspaper Tuttosport, Conte is considering a potential reunion with Alonso ahead of the January transfer window.
Conte is believed to be frustrated with Asamoah's injury woes that keep him out of the squad for lengthy periods of time.
The 31-year-old is currently out of action after sustaining a knee injury and has to miss most of Inter's matches.
The Ghana international has featured in two games for Inter since October 20 and was in action for 81 minutes against Brescia and 18 against Roma.
Alonso has fallen out of favour at Chelsea and that will motivate Inter to approach the Blues to secure a deal for him.
