Alvaro Morata has once again been connected with a move away from Stamford Bridge this January window, but this time back to his native Spain with Sevilla.
It is just five goals in England’s top division this campaign for Spain international star, with only 11 starts to his name, plus another five from the bench.
The Spanish club are reportedly interested in bringing in another forward, after loaning Luis Muriel to Italian club Fiorentina on Friday, and chief Joaquin Caparros refused to rule out a swoop for the Chelsea striker.
As quoted by Football.London, the sporting director said: “We are working on many names. The important thing is that the player wants to come to Sevilla.”
In spite of being out of form, Chelsea may look to keep the former Juventus player at the Bridge for now, as they have striker issues of their own.
Oliver Giroud is sidelined due to ankle injury, whilst Pedro and Callum Hudson-Odoi have picked up hamstring problems in the latest weeks.
Eden Hazard has repeatedly been deployed as a false nine under Italian manager Maurizio Sarri, and the Italian has refused to recall the services of Michy Batshuayi and Tammy Abraham.
