Chelsea have completed the signing of full-back Marcos Alonso from Fiorentina – Antonio Conte’s fourth signing of the summer.
The former Bolton Wanderers and Sunderland left-back joins the club for £23 million.
Liverpool have finally offloaded Mario Balotelli on a free transfer to Nice.
Balotelli, 26, was a huge flop following his £16million move from AC Milan in 2014 and managed just four goals for the Reds.
Balotelli passed a medical at Nice after the Reds have spent the last couple of days negotiating the terms of his exit. The Reds were keen on a permanent deal rather than another loan and the Ligue 1 side have agreed to take him on a free.
Liverpool have reached a settlement with Balotelli over the remainder of his Anfield contract.
