Alvaro Morata agent in London for Chelsea exit, Sevilla talks

Juanma Lopez, the agent of Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata, has arrived in London to discuss the striker’s January move to Sevilla, report ESPN FC.

The player’s representative arrived in the Andalusian capital on Monday, claimed Diario AS, in attempt to accelerate the Spain international’s move to Los Rojiblancos and has now flown to England.

Morata joined the Blues from Real Madrid in a €65m deal last summer but has struggled for form for the majority of his time in the English capital.

“We are interested in Morata, but it is a very complicated operation due to his cost,” Sevilla Director of Football Joaquin Caparros told Sevilla club media on Tuesday.

“The player wants to come here over other options, but the negotiation with Chelsea will be very complicated.”

AS say the deal would most likely be a loan arrangement until the end of the season without an obligation to buy, although Chelsea are trying to source a replacement before sanctioning any move.
