The player is open to leave the club this summer
Despite a dazzling start in England, with eight goals in his first seven games, the 25 year old struggled to find his feet in the Premier League last season. He also struggled with mysterious back injury which kept him sidelined for a long period.
His game time was further reduced as the club signed Olivier Giroud from Arsenal in the January Transfer Window. The French striker was given the nod to start ahead of him by Antonio Conte and was very impressive, scoring 5 goals in all competitions.
The Spain International just scored 15 goals 47 appearances in all competitions during the 2017-18 campaign, with 11 of them coming in the Premier League. He even missed out on Spain’s World Cup squad due to his underwhelming debut season in the Premier League.
The Spaniard has been heavily linked with a departure from Stamford Bridge this summer. His former clubs Juventus and Real Madrid in addition to Borussia Dortmund have all shown strong interest in him.
The Blues have also reportedly linked with big money move for strikers including Juventus star Gonzalo Higuain. This led to speculations that the Spanish Striker’s time with the Premier League is over.
Chelsea will meet with Morata’s agent next week to resolve the Number 9’s future according to The Sun.
The player reportedly wants to quit after just one season with them and the club are hoping to recoup the high price they paid for him a year ago, let alone find someone to bid 65/70 million transfer fee for his services.
