Chelsea to agree loan transfer for 15-goal striker

Chelsea are poised to allow Alvaro Morata leave when the transfer window is re-opened in January, this is according to reports.

Morata has failed to increase his stock since joining Chelsea from Real Madrid in the penultimate summer.

He managed to score only 15 goals in 48 appearances for the Blues last season and this season, his form has been nothing short of unimpressive.

Under Sarri, the Spanish striker has found the back of the net in only seven games and he has struggled to adapt to Sarri-ball.

Olivier Giroud has been preferred over Morata lately but the aforementioned stars have all been relegated to the bench with Eden Hazard now playing in the no.9 role for the Blues.

Morata has  been widely linked with a move away from Chelsea, with Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla all vying for his signature.

However, Sarri is looking to send the Spanish forward on a loan spell in January.

Chelsea know that they may not be able to recoup the funds they used in signing him unless him regains his form.

The Blues have given a good account of themselves this season but the lack of a potent no. 10 is affecting their chances of winning the League.
