Sevilla director or football Joaquin Caparros believes Alvaro Morata is very eager to join the Spanish club but insists reaching a deal for the striker is looking very hard at this moment.
Morata has had his fair amount of struggle since his inception to the Premier League. The Spanish international arrived in the last season for £60m but is yet to make a mark at the Stamford Bridge.
A number of clubs have expressed their interest in the player and Maurizio Sarri is also keen to replace the player with someone more efficient upfront. Sarri has used Eden Hazard in the central role but would like to pair up with a proper centre forward if Morata is to leave.
A number of players with the likes of Gonzalo Higuain has been linked with the Blues but the club hierarchy is yet to make a decision. Sevilla are currently third in the La Liga and are very eager to bring attacking reinforcements in a bid to push for the Spanish title.
Caparros said, “It is true that we have an interest in this player [Morata], but it is a very, very complicated operation.
“The player may want to come here over other options, but it is very complicated. Chelsea are a club who are very difficult to negotiate [with].”
