Atletico Madrid keen to sign Chelsea misfiring striker

talkSPORT report that Atletico Madrid are keen to sign misfiring Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata, with separate reports suggesting he has been spotted in Milan with his agent to discuss a move back to Juventus, where he spent two seasons on loan whilst with his parent club Real Madrid.

The 25-yesar old striker has failed to shine in England, despite a bright start to his career at Chelsea, and has scored just three goals since the turn of the year, losing his place in the starting line-up to Olivier Giroud.  He failed to make the Spanish squad for the World Cup Finals and now it looks like he could be set to draw his time in England to a premature end, as clubs in his native Spain and Italy begin to circle.

Atletico are looking for a replacement for Antoine Griezmann who has been linked with a move to Barcelona, and also need reinforcements in the striking positions after Fernando Torres brought his time at the club to an end.

Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
