Antonio Conte has both Alvaro Morata and Michy Batshuayi at his disposal, but he does not appear to be fully content with his options for his forward line.

According to Don Balon, the Italian is in the market for a new centre-forward, as he does not trust Belgium international Batshuayi.

The report claims that Conte asked Morata for advice on who he should look to sign to strengthen his attack, and the former Real Madrid man suggested Barcelona academy product Sandro Ramirez, who signed for Everton in the summer transfer window.

Should Conte listen to Morata?

Sandro has not been able to replicate his best performance level since moving to Goodison Park, but Don Balon believe that Morata sees him as the ideal candidate to lead Chelsea’s line alongside him.

It remains to be seen whether Conte trusts Morata’s judgement enough to place a bid to sign the Spaniard. After all, we have an entire scouting network who should be able to provide Conte with an option to reinforce his offensive options.
