Having started the season as Maurizio Sarri's first choice striker, the Spaniard has gone off the boil, with the Blues manager experimenting with Eden Hazard as a central striker in his place in recent weeks - leading to rumours linking Morata with an exit.

The future of Alvaro Morata remains in the balance and the player's agent has arrived in London in order to find a resolution to his situation, with both the player and Chelsea looking to bring an end to his time at Stamford Bridge.

According to Diario AS, Morata's agent, Juanma Lopez, arrived in Spain on Tuesday to negotiate the striker's move to Sevilla. He plays at Chelsea, not at Southampton or Brighton, with respect for these clubs'.

Though Sarri has Morata, who joined for £60m from Real Madrid in 2017, and France global striker Olivier Giroud at his disposal, the Italian has often deployed forward Eden Hazard in a more advanced role. 'They expect a lot of goals and many great performances.

"Morata seems to have a soft underbelly, he likes a tap-in but does not really like to go through the pain barrier to score goals".

"We want to continue to take the club forward and the team forward, and to do that, we've got to keep our best player". They are also still in three cup competitions - the Carabao Cup, the FA Cup and the Europa League.
