Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata has made his mind up over a summer move to the Premier League and looks to have plumped for Chelsea over Arsenal, according to reports to the Telegraph.
The former Juventus man, who was brought back to the Spanish capital from Turin in the summer, has fallen out of favour under Zinedine Zidane who has stuck with Frenchman Karim Benzema despite him struggling for form.
With Morata’s patience wearing thin the Spain international has supposedly told close friends that he expects to move to Stamford Bridge over The Emirates come the end of the season.
The forward has been lined up as a potential replacement for Diego Costa, who has been touted as the next big name to be tempted by the Chinese Super League.
The news will only heap misery on Gunners fans who watched on as their side was demolished 3-1 by Antonio Conte’s at the Bridge in Saturday’s early kickoff.
