Italian Giants Preparing Bid For Alvaro Morata In The Summer

Juventus are interested in bringing Alvaro Morata back to Turin, with Chelsea facing a battle to hang on to the striker after an underwhelming debut season in England.

Morata, who joined the Blues for a £70.6million fee including add-ons last summer, enjoyed a successful two-year spell with the Italians before leaving in 2016.

Despite his exit, which saw him return to Real Madrid for a second spell, he has made no secret of his eagerness to return to Italy in the future.

And, according to Corriere dello Sport, that dream could become a reality ahead of next season with Juventus keeping a close eye on his situation in west London.

The Spanish striker has yet to hit the ground running in the Premier League, despite scoring 11 top-flight goals under Antonio Conte.

He has often cut a frustrated figure around the club and Chelsea face a dilemma over the former Real Madrid forward, having seen Diego Costa return to Atletico Madrid in January.

It is understood Morata’s unhappiness in England — with the striker apparently upset by the physical approach of Premier League defenders — has become evident at the club’s Cobham training base and his team-mates are concerned.
