The coming summer transfer window may go down as the most intriguing as the top clubs of the Premier League slug it out to make amends to the loopholes spotted in their squad this term.
According to emerging reports by Starsports, Chelsea are on the verge to landing out of favor Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.
The striker sat out Los Blancos team that thumped Atletico Madrid in the Champions League earlier this week, and despite the poor form of Benzema, the Spaniard continues to get limited number of time on the pitch for Madrid.
He’s started just one game for Madrid in the Champions League this season, and managed 12 starts in the La Liga too. Morata is unhappy with his situation at the Santiago against his thought that he’ll be a started when Zinedine Zidane signed him back last summer.
A report by Don Balon claims Chelsea are not the only club in the chase of the player, they are joined by Italian giants AC Milan but it is Chelsea who are dubbed as favorite for his signature given their financial standing.
Reports linking Diego Costa with a move away from Stamford Bridge have refused to diffuse and it now appears that Conte is resigned to losing his tallies man. Morata, who is admired by Conte will come in to Chelsea as replacement for the probable outgoing striker.
The report claims that Morata has already agreed personal terms with the Blues and they are willing to offer £63.7m in other to get the player lace his boots for us.
Morata was in the transfer radar of Arsenal last season but if we can get him, he’ll be a top-notch buy for us. He’s scored 13 League goals in 12 starts and 11 substitute appearances for the La Decima holders.
