The Spain international defender has previously spent time in Italy with Fiorentina, while he has recently been heavily linked with a switch Inter
Chelsea moved to bring the former Bolton man back to English football and have him tied to a contract through to the summer of 2023.
Questions have, however, been asked of the 29-year-old’s future at Stamford Bridge as he battles for minutes with Emerson and both men have seen moves to Serie A mooted, having previously caught the eye on an Italian stage.
He told Calciomercato when asked about the memories Alonso junior has of his time in Florence: “Awesome.
“He always talks about his legendary three years in Florence, says that Serie A is a beautiful championship and continues to be very close to Italy because he has many friends there. He has very good memories.”
Alonso was linked with a move to Inter during the winter transfer window of 2020, with former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte looking to the Premier League for new recruits.
No deal was done and a versatile operator was back among the goals for the Blues in their most recent outing, as Frank Lampard’s side edged out London rivals Tottenham 2-1.
Pressed further on whether a return to Italy could be made at some stage, Alonso’s father said: “I don’t know, it’s difficult to say.
“He still has a three-year contract with Chelsea, it doesn’t depend on him, but on the will of the English club. I can only say that my son loves Italy.”
Alonso has been a regular under a succession of managers since being snapped up by the Blues.
