Chelsea are reportedly open to the idea of letting Alvaro Morata leave the club during the current transfer window. Very few who have watched him this season will be surprised.
Morata has fallen some distance down the selection pecking order since the start of the season. Maurizio Sarri has been fast educated to the fact that he cannot rely on the Spaniard to find the back of the net on a regular basis.
The former Real Madrid man opted against celebrating either of the goals he scored against Nottingham Forest at the weekend. He doesn’t look happy, and the Telegraph believe the Chelsea squad are under the impression he wants out.
Morata may well get his wish. The Telegraph claim that Chelsea will have no problem seeing him walk out the door this winter as long as an adequate replacement is signed. Gonzalo Higuain is looking the most likely acquisition at the time of writing.
Both Sevilla and Atletico Madrid are thought to be interested in signing Morata. It’s hard to see either side stumping up the cash to sign him permanently mid-season, to any deal would likely include an initial loan agreement.
