Chelsea face threat of axe, Euro giants plot £55million swoop
It’s not been a good season for Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata, and it could allegedly lead to a departure from the West London club this summer transfer window.
Slow start at Stamford Bridge
The 25-year-old forward from La Liga giants Real Madrid came to Chelsea with huge expectations, but he’s extremely struggled to adapt with Chelsea and English football as he’s managed only 15 goals in 46 matches.
Goal scoring have been a big problem for Antonio Conte’s team, as shown by the stats that they have the worst figures of the top six teams with 62 goals in 37 English Premier League matches, as winter signing from Arsenal Olivier Giroud has shown that he is an important addition with Spain international Alvaro Morata continuing to toil.
Juventus want loan move for Morata
According to The Express, Serie A giants Juventus could make a £15million initial loan offer for the Spaniard to take him back to Italy for up to two years, before paying an additional £40million to make it permanent.
With a lack of depth and quality in that part of the pitch, the Blues will certainly want to identify a good replacement before they offload.
Undoubtedly, it has been a frustrating campaign for the player with his shortage of goals, and from his own perspective, perhaps a Juventus return could be a reasonable step in his career.
