Chelsea to suffer big loss in potential Morata move to Sevilla

Reports suggest that Sevilla are set to make a loan move for Alvaro Morata in a deal that will see the Blues suffer a big loss. The La Liga outfit are prepared to sign the Spain international on a season-long loan and make the deal permanent in the summer.

According to the Guardian, Sevilla want to pay £5m for the loan move and an additional £35m in the summer to make the deal permanent. This is a far cry from the £60m the Blues paid to sign Alvaro Morata from Juventus in 2017, seeing he still has age on his side.

Reports are rife in the Spanish media that there has been a meeting between Sevilla’s director of football, Joaquin Caparros and Morata’s agent Juanma Lopez to discuss a possible move.

Chelsea are reportedly open to the departure of the striker who has struggled and failed to put in consistent performances for the Blues, although a deal will only be sanctioned after they’ve got a suitable replacement.

The likes of Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson, AC Milan’s Gonzalo Higuain, and Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi have been linked with Chelsea.
