Chelsea, Liverpool in the running to sign £32m striker – report

Chelsea and Liverpool are in the running to sign Alvaro Morata, according to AS English

Chelsea and Liverpool are in the running to sign Alvaro Morata from Juventus this summer, according to AS English.

The Spain international is being tipped to leave the Serie A champions at the end of the season after a mixed season for Massimiliano Allegri’s side.

The 23-year-old has scored a respectable seven goals in 34 league appearances, although Morata has only started 17 of Juve’s 37 Serie A fixtures.

Arsenal were thought to be leading the race to sign the former Real Madrid striker, who is rumoured to be keen on a return to the Spanish capital.

However, according to AS English, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham are all in contention for the £32m-rated striker’s signature in the summer transfer window.

Morata was part of the Juve side that lost 2-1 to Barcelona in the Champions League final in 2015.
