Chelsea is willing to sell their record signing striker Alvaro Morata in a bid to fund a move for new signings ahead of the coming season.

The Stamford Bridge giants are set to embark on a deal with his former Serie A club Juventus this summer and sell the Spanish attacker for around €60m, having paid €70m for the striker to secure his service from Real Madrid last summer, according to Gazzetta Dello Sport.

Morata was brought in as a replacement for star striker Diego Costa but his poor performance for Chelsea has necessitated his sale from the London based club.

The former Real Madrid and Juventus striker scored 15 goals in his first season a tally which is too poor for a striker of his class.

The officials in Chelsea are already planning to sell the ex-Real Madrid attacker. Juventus is hoping to push the fee down even further - by first landing Morata on loan and then agreeing on a permanent fee of €50m to be paid to Chelsea in instalments.
