Marcos Alonso's first words after his £23million move from Fiorentina to Chelsea


New Chelsea signing Marcos Alonso says he always dreamed of playing for Chelsea after he completed his £23million move from Fiorentina.

The Spaniard is Antonio Conte's fourth summer signing and joins Michy Batshuayi, N'Golo Kante and goalkeeper Eduardo.

He already possesses Premier League experience having played for Bolton Wanderers and Sunderland before moving to Italy.

"I'm very happy," Alonso told the club's official website.

"It's a step up in my career and I think this is the perfect place for me to continue developing. 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.

"My family and close friends know Chelsea is the club I have dreamed about playing for so I'm really excited about the challenge and I'm looking forward to working with my new team-mates."
