Morata amongst Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang alternatives being explored by Chelsea

Chelsea could re-sign former striker Alvaro Morata, it has been reported.

Morata has spent the previous two campaigns plying his trade in the Serie A with Juventus. The Spaniard was on loan in Turin from Spanish powerhouse, Atletico Madrid.

During his latest stint in Italy, Morata has provided a decent number of goals, but nothing to write home about.

In 2021/22 he would score 12 and assist nine in 48 outings across all competitions, a much lower total than 2020/21 which saw him score 20 and assist 12 in 44 games for Juve.

The Italian side did have an option to buy Morata this summer, but he has since returned to Atletico Madrid where he is once again the subject of transfer speculation.

Manchester United have been linked with Morata several times over the last few months.

And now, it appears Chelsea could be considering bringing back the Spaniard to Stamford Bridge.

Barca and Chelsea have held talks over a deal for Aubameyang but have failed to come to an agreement over a fee.

It is added that the Blues have proposed a cash plus player offer, with Marcos Alonso moving in the other direction, whilst Barca are holding out for over €25m – a fee Chelsea are not willing to match.

Morata scored 24 and assisted six in 72 outings during his time at Chelsea.
