Juventus will look to loan Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata
Juventus are planning a move for Alvaro Morata.
The reports in Italy suggested that Juventus will look to loan Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata.
The Spain international joined Chelsea from Real Madrid in July 2017. The 25-year-old has four years left on his current contract which expires in 2022.
Morata has played 42 times for Chelsea since signing from Real Madrid, scoring 14 goals and creating six assists in that time.
The 25-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers in Spain.
Alvaro Morata has represented Spain at Under-17, Under-18, Under-19 and Under-21 level, winning 34 caps and scoring 29 goals, before making his senior international debut in November 2014. As a member of Spain national football team, Morata won 23 caps and he scored 13 goals.
Juventus shortlist Alvaro Morata as prime transfer target in the upcoming summer transfer window.
The Italian champions have built a reputation for recruiting talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
Juventus will be desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
According to Calciomercato (via Tuttosport), “The Chelsea star moved to South West London for € 80 million last summer and according to Tuttosport this will be the main issue for Juventus given that the Serie A giants are not open to offer as much to take Morata back to the Stadium in the summer. The Turin-based paper claims the Old Lady will try to convince Chelsea by offering to sign the player on a two-year loan deal with option to buy.”

Chelsea are not in a position where they need to loan and would like to keep hold of the striker, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.
A move to Juventus is exactly what Alvaro Morata needs to reignite his career, and we hope he is able to do just that.
It will be interesting to see whether Juventus will make their move during the summer transfer window.
