One month away from the start of the 2017/2018 football season, reigning champions Chelsea are still without a striker after coach Antonio Conte unceremoniously dispensed of the services of prolific hitman, Diego Costa. The Blues were looking to sign Romelu Lukaku but were beaten to the deal by Manchester United.
As a result, the London club have now turned their attentions to Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata and are ready to offer around £70million for the 24-year old.
The Spaniard who scored 20 goals last season is unhappy at Madrid where his first team opportunities are limited and will consider making the switch to Chelsea where he will be tasked with leading the line.
Chelsea are willing to offer him a deal worth more than the £115,000 per week he earns at the Bernabeu.
