Chelsea target Torres signs new deal with La Liga outfit

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is demanding more from the club record signing forward, according to report.

Conte has lost his patience with ex-Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata and has told the Spanish forward he needs more from him according to report in The Sun.

Chelsea broke their previous club record of £50m to sign Morata from Real Madrid at a club record fee of £65million last summer, the striker has only managed 14 goals since his arrival.

The Italian tactician wants Morata to be consistent in terms of goal scoring and remain focused on his football.

There is a feeling in the camp the former Real Madrid man does not make football his priority — a big no-no for Conte who claims he works 24 hours a day.

The forward suffered a back injury and went on a goal drought after starting the season with the Premier League Champions on a good note.

The forward scored the opening goal against Tottenham Hotspur in the derby, though Chelsea lost the game 3-1 after Mauricio Pochettino’s men mounted a comeback to win the match on Sunday at the Stamford Bridge.
