EPL: Chelsea players angry with Morata with striker set to leave

Sevilla are also keen on the Spain worldwide, but their sporting director Joaquin Caparros admitted on Tuesday: 'It is true that we have an interest in this player [Morata], but it is a very, very complicated operation. Five things to know...

The Portugal worldwide scored just two Serie A goals for Milan last season before being shipped out on loan to Sevilla in the summer.

However, he has scored just five times in 16 Premier League appearances and Sarri has often resorted to playing Eden Hazard through the middle.

His former club aren't believed to be interested in signing the Spaniard, with their focus on fellow Chelsea ace Eden Hazard.

"I don't speak about players that aren't with us, only those that are".

Chelsea had originally been heavily linked with Gonzalo Higuain, but the complicated nature of any such deal given that the player is on loan at AC Milan from Juventus looks to be a problem.

Could Diego Costa play a role in Morata's exit?

Sevilla were in the running for the 26-year-old but given they may now sign Munir El Haddadi this month, rather than wait until the summer, Atletico could have a clear run towards Morata.

On Wednesday sources told ESPN FC that Morata's agent travelled to London to meet with Chelsea officials and discuss a loan move away from Stamford Bridge, and Sevilla sporting director Joaquin Caparros claimed his club were the frontrunners after meeting with the striker's representative.

Atletico joined the hunt for Morata earlier this week in an attempt to replace Diego Costa, who is now recovering from a foot injury.

If that happens, Costa could conceivably become surplus to requirements in the Spanish capital. "We can only sign players later on".
