Barcelona star Jordi Alba is open to the move that would see Chelsea forward Alvaro Morata join the Nou Camp outfit.

Alba is of the view that his fellow countryman would be welcomed at Barcelona if he makes the move to return back to Spain.

The Spanish defender has made it clear that he would be happy to see the former Juventus striker return their country and join him at the Nou Camp.

"Morata is a player that I appreciate a lot, he has been a top player for many years," Alba said on Thursday.

"At the end, it's the club's [decision] if they want to sign him or not, as with any other player.

"If the rumours are true, he would be very welcome, as all the new players [are].”

Morata might be permitted to negotiate a move to Barcelona if Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri could sign a replacement.
