Chelsea are reportedly holding talks now with Atletico Madrid over a transfer that will see Alvaro Morata leave Stamford Bridge and return to Spain.
The 26-year-old has majorly flopped in his time in the Premier League, scoring only 24 goals in 72 games in all competitions, and just 16 in 47 top flight matches.
It looks vital for Chelsea to sign a top class replacement up front as soon as possible, with plenty of big names linked with the Blues this January.
However, according to journalist Pipe Sierra, it’s not exactly looking promising for CFC at the moment as Morata holds talks over a move away, but with no replacement signing yet close.

Will Higuain be the right striker for Chelsea?
