AC Milan have enquired about the possibility of signing Alvaro Morata from Chelsea FC this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Evening Standard is reporting that the Italian side are keen on a move to bring the 25-year-old striker to Serie A this summer.

The same story says that Chelsea FC are interested in signing AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, and that the possibility of a swap deal has been discussed.

According to the same article, Morata’s minimum asking price at Chelsea FC is around £58m, which is slightly more than what the 19-year-old goalkeeper is valued at by AC Milan.

Morata’s future has been something of a source of speculation this summer after his mixed first season at Chelsea FC following his move from Real Madrid last July.

The striker made a strong start to the season but his form tailed off in the second part of the campaign as he struggled with a back injury.

Chelsea FC are currently preparing for life under new manager Maurizio Sarri after he was appointed as the club’s new manager last weekend following the departure of Antonio Conte.

The west London side will be looking to at least challenge for the Premier League title next season.
