Chelsea had been searching for a Left back for the whole window and they finally acquired one in Ben Chilwell. With now having 3 left backs, one of Alonso or Emerson has to leave for the club to balance its books and use the funds generated on other positions.
As per credible source Fabrizio Romano, Aleksandar Kolarov will sign for Inter on loan till 2021 and there would be an option to extend it for the second season as well.

This might come as a big blow for Chelsea in its hope to sell one of its left-backs. Emerson had been heavily linked to leaving for Inter Milan and the deal was thought to be close but with Kolarov’s arrival, it looks difficult to imagine whether Inter will require another left-back this season.
Inter have yet to finalize an extension of the loan for Biraghi who is currently a Fiorentina player and this might lead them to still make an offer for Emerson this window.
With the deadline just a month away, Chelsea will try to trim the squad and complete their window as soon as possible.
