Juventus are keen on a loan move to sign Alvaro Morata from Chelsea FC after his difficult first season at Stamford Bridge, according to reports in the British media.

The Independent is reporting that the Italian side are looking into a deal to re-sign the striker just a year after he signed for Chelsea FC from Real Madrid last summer.

Morata spent two seasons at Juventus from 2014 to 2016, before he returned to Real Madrid for a season.

The same report says that Chelsea FC chiefs do still feel that Morata can come good at Stamford Bridge, but the Blues are also needing to offload a number of players to raise funds for the summer transfer window.

The article claims that Juventus are favouring a financed loan deal to sign Morata, but Chelsea FC may not be so keen on that kind of arrangement.

It remains to be seen whether Morata will feature for Chelsea FC when the Blues take on Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.

The striker has endured a mixed first season at the west London club, scoring 11 goals and making six assists in 31 Premier League games for Antonio Conte’s men.
