Sevilla chief Caparros: Major competition for Chelsea striker Morata

The Spanish club are interested in bringing the forward back to La Liga as he has struggled to settle at Stamford Bridge.

Whether Morata will be available is another matter, as Chelsea are reported to be keen to sign a replacement before they release him for the remainder of the season, as Edinson Cavani has been discussed in the media as an option.

However, the Guardian reports that they are looking to pay £5m for the loan deal and then a further £35m in the summer - significantly less than the £60m Chelsea paid Juventus for Morata's services in July 2017.

And his lack of celebration after scoring two goals against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup on Saturday has seen some suggest he would rather be anywhere else than Chelsea.

As reported by the club's official website, the Spaniard has not been risked by Blues boss Maurizio Sarri as the team bid to win the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final at Wembley.

The Cavaliers closed the first half on a 15-2 run to lead 42-23 and led by as many as 29 before the Seminoles rallied late. The Cavaliers were led by a 19-point performance from sophomore guard Brianna Tinsley (Madison, Va.).

"It is more important to score than celebrate".

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

Quite where Morata would fit into the pecking order at Sevilla is unknown, with Wissam Ben Yedder and Andre Silva having netted 24 goals between them in all competitions this season.

The report further details that Chelsea will not be prepared to offload the Spain global unless they have a direct replacement lined up for January.

Bournemouth's top scorer Callum Wilson is an option , though the Cherries are understood to be standing firm in not selling the England global.
