La Liga Club Hold Talks With Agent Of Chelsea Star As Player Pushes For Loan Switch
Sevilla have held initial talks with the agent of Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata about a potential loan move, according to reports in the UK.
The Blues are said to be willing to let the 26-year-old leave this month if they can find a replacement before the transfer window closes.
Gonzalo Higuain has been talked about as a potential new addition to the squad, but it is believed that AC Milan’s loan agreement with Juventus for the Argentinian could make the deal too complex.
Callum Wilson is also reportedly being considered while PSG’s Edinson Cavani has also been talked of as a potential target.
Morata has scored nine goals this season but manager Maurizio Sarri has questioned his confidence levels with the Spaniard having been unable to establish himself as a regular first-team player under the Italian.
The striker scored twice against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup on Saturday but didn’t celebrate either goal. Reports in Spain say that this was deliberate as he doesn’t feel respected at Stamford Bridge and he is pushing for a move to Sevilla.
