The Spaniard started the 2017/18 season well for Chelsea bagging six in his first six games. But he would then score just one league goal in the second half of last season.

Morata may have hoped a change in manager would help him rediscover his form this campaign.

Unfortunately, Maurizio Sarri appears to be equally as frustrated with him.

Sarri has even chosen to play Hazard, a winger, up front on several occasions instead of Morata.

As a result, Morata’s future at Chelsea looks bleak with Spanish side Sevilla reportedly keen to sign Morata this January.

Chelsea closing in on Higuain deal

But Morata leaving Chelsea in January does depend on the Blues signing a replacement in the winter window.

The forward Chelsea look most likely to replace Morata with is Gonzalo Higuain.

Higuain played under Sarri when the pair were at Napoli together and could be keen to reunite with his former boss.

The Argentine is also now just 1/5 to join Chelsea with betting syndicate Ladbrokes.

However, if Chelsea are unable to land Higuain in January, the Blues are said to be willing to pay £50m for Bournemouth striker, Callum Wilson.

Wilson has enjoyed a superb first half of the season with Bournemouth, scoring nine and assisting five in the league.
