Chelsea are set to secure the services of defender Marcos Alonso to a long-term deal in the coming days, according to quotes published by The Mirror.

The Spain international became an instant hit at Chelsea after signing from Fiorentina in 2016 and has been ever-present for Maurizio Sarri’s side this season, forcing his way into his nation’s senior squad.

While his current deal is not due to expire until 2021, Chelsea are set to reward the 27-year-old with a new deal that will secure his long-term future and the player confirmed a deal is imminent.

“I am very calm and very happy at Chelsea, and the club must also be happy with me because, although I still have two years left on my contract, they have offered me an extension. We are talking about it and the talks to renew are already advanced.

“If everything goes well, I think I will renew before the end of this month – in the coming days. My father takes care of that as he is the one who leads the negotiations. I am 27 years old, I still have two more years and I am going to extend my contract.”
