Marcos Alonso is a target for Real Madrid and their rivals Atletico, according to Marca.
The Spanish sports paper reports that the Liga giants are weighing up £27million (30m euro) offers to try and prise the left-back away from Chelsea.
However, there appears to be little chance that kind of sum will be enough to land Alonso.
The Spaniard, 27, is contracted to the club until 2021, having penned a five-year deal when he joined from Fiorentina for £23m in 2016.
Alonso has started this season in menacing form and picked up a goal and an assist in Chelsea’s 3-2 win over Arsenal on Saturday.
His raids forward from left-back look to be a key part of boss Maurizio Sarri’s approach and the Blues are unlikely to allow the one-cap international to leave for less than double what they paid.

However, that may not stop the Madrid duo testing the Blues’ resolve before the European window closes at the end of the month.
Real are a left-back short after loaning Theo Hernandez to Real Sociedad.
Alonso was born in the Spanish capital and came through the ranks at Real before moving to Bolton and then Fiorentina.
And Atletico are considering selling Filipe Luis to Paris Saint-Germain.
The Europa League champions are reportedly holding a summit today to discuss whether to part with the Brazilian.
