Chelsea FC have set an asking price of €65-70m (£58-£62m) to sell Alvaro Morata this summer, according to reports in Italy.

Gianluca Di Marzio, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Blues are considering offloading the Spanish forward just a year after he moved to Stamford Bridge from Real Madrid.

Morata made a strong start to life at Chelsea FC last season but his form tailed off in the second part of the campaign after he struggled with a back injury.

The same story claims that AC Milan are now stepping up their attempts to try and sign the 25-year-old this summer before the transfer deadline next month.

According to the same article, Chelsea FC would be willing to do business for around £60m as Maurizio Sarri considers offloading the striker.

The same story says that AC Milan’s new director of sport, Leonardo, held a meeting with Morata’s entourage on Wednesday to discuss a potential deal.

Chelsea FC will be looking to at least break back into the top four next season after their fifth placed finish in the table last term under Antonio Conte.

The Blues completed their first signing of the summer earlier this month by landing Jorginho from Napoli.
