Sevilla submit offer to Chelsea for Alvaro Morata

Sevilla & Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata

According to the Evening Standard, Sevilla have made their move to sign Alvaro Morata from Chelsea this January.

Morata’s time at Stamford Bridge has been tough.

While the Spanish striker previously starred for Juventus and Real Madrid, he’s struggled to justify his price tag in west London.

Looking bereft of confidence and constantly failing the eye-test, Morata, who is still just 26, is regularly pilloried after Chelsea games.

This season he’s scored five goals in the Premier League, while he’s yet to register an assist.

However whether Sevilla’s offer for Morata will be enough for Chelsea is doubtful:

Alvaro Morata is desperate to leave Chelsea having struggled since joining from Real Madrid for £58m in 2017.

It is believed Sevilla have made Chelsea an offer worth £5m to loan Morata with another £35m to be paid in the off-season.

While Chelsea would probably like to have Morata off their books, would they be open to such a loss in the transfer market?

Gonzalo Higuain & Chelsea

The rumour goes that if Morata does leave Chelsea, the Blues could sign Gonzalo Higuain from AC Milan.

Higuain is currently in a goal-drought at the San Siro, while the Argentine previously played for Maurizio Sarri at Napoli.

On the Higuain deal with Chelsea, the Evening Standard report:

Standard Sport revealed last month that Chelsea had reignited their interest in Higuain, who is currently on loan from Juventus at AC Milan.

Sarri initially asked for the Argentina international last summer and is pressing the board to make another move now.

Callum Hudson-Odoi & Bayern Munich

Finally regarding Chelsea, Callum Hudson-Odoi is reportedly talking to team mates about Bayern Munich.

Antonio Rudiger has revealed how Hudson-Odoi has asked him about living in Germany.
