Chelsea set price tags for Azpilicueta and Alonso
Football Transfer Centre

Chelsea are reluctant to lose Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso this summer unless their £11 million price tags are met, Sport claims.

The duo have one year remaining on their respective deals and it has emerged that they are keen on pursuing fresh challenges.

Both of them are on the radar of Barcelona, but it is unclear whether the Catalan giants can afford to secure their services.

The La Liga outfit were hoping to secure bargain deals, but Chelsea won’t accept less than £11 million for each player this summer.

Hence, there is a higher possibility that the defensive pair could see out the final year of their contracts with the west London giants.

Regardless of this, the Blues are expected to bolster their backline after the free transfer exits of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.

They are currently in talks with Juventus for centre-back Matthijs de Ligt, but are far off from reaching a suitable transfer agreement.
