Chelsea could let their main striker Alvaro Morata leave in the January transfer window if Gonzalo Higuaìn joins the club from AC Milan (on loan from Juventus), according to reports in Italy and England.

With former Chelsea star Diego Costa struggling to make an impact in the current season having scored just one goal in 11 games for Los Colchoneros, manager Diego Pablo Simeone is said to be keen on bringing in another forward to revamp his attacking options.

The Spaniard landed to Stamford Bridge on a club-record £70m move less than two years ago under Antonio Conte‘s management.

Also AC Milan, Barcelona as well as Sevilla have been recently linked with a move for Morata.

Chelsea will reportedly turn down “all offers” for his Spanish star Marcos Alonso this summer amid speculations he is a target for both Madrid clubs: Real and Atletico.

The Daily Mail reports the Blues have “no interest” in parting with the left-back, who is attracting interest from the Spanish capital, where the transfer window remains open until the end of the month.

Spanish outlet AS reported Alonso – who grew up as a footballer in the Real Madrid academy- had emerged as a target for both Lopetegui and Simeone clubs with a potential price tag of just €30 million (£26.9 million) but Chelsea are keen to keep him for the rest of the season.

Savic spent three seasons with Atletico Madrid and made 36 appearances for the club last season.

Atletico Madrid are lining-up a summer move to land Alvaro Morata from Chelsea as they remain keen to replace Antoine Griezmann if the Frenchman leaves the club, according to Italian publication Tuttosport this morning.

We reported earlier last night that Morata and Lopez were spotted in Milan on Wednesday ahead of a meeting with Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici, who’s reportedly closing on a move to sign also full-back Matteo Darmian from Manchester United and Premier League.

Juventus are closing on a move to sign also Liverpool star Emre Can and Italian goalkeeper Mattia Perin.

Current Atletico Madrid manager Diego Pablo Simeone was spotted while shouting at Alvaro Morata in Champions League clash against Real Madrid earlier in 2017 and some reports in Spain suggested he asked him to join Los Colchoneros in the future.

However Morata himself revealed a few weeks later: “He came to me and asked me a croissant from the brand I have launched.” 

The 25-year-old joined Chelsea in July on a permanent move from Real Madrid.

Atletico Madrid were dominant in the UEFA Europa League 2017/18 final against Olympique Marseille in Lyon tonight. A defensive mistake after 21′ was exploited by Antoine Griezmann, who doubled earlier in the second half following a positive start from the Ligue One giants.

Captain Gabi sealed a final 0-3 for Diego Pablo Simeone’s men, who reached both Inter Milan and Juventus  with 3 titles in their history. Sevilla remain top of the table with 5 titles.

Former West Ham United striker Dimitri Payet, who was a doubt ahead of the game, limped off the pitch in tears just after Griezmann’s opener as he suffered a knee injury. On the other hand, Fernando Torres came off the bench with 2′ left to go to celebrate his final trophy of career.

REMINDER – Chelsea won the Europa League in 2013 as they beat Benfica in Amsterdam under Rafa Benitez’s management. A late goal from Branislav Ivanovic won the Europa League for the Blues, who will be playing in the same competition next season.
