Chelsea manager Antonio Conte wants to sign Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata before the end of the week, reports from Spain have claimed.
The Spain international is one of the most wanted players this summer having been linked with Arsenal, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.
His dream is to play for the Spanish giants but it is unlikely that he will secure a regular place in Zinedine Zidane's squad next season.
Last week, the 23-year-old confirmed that he wants his future to be decided "as quickly as possible".
"Everything I say now will be taken one way or the other," Morata told Al Primer Toque.
"I said which player would not want to go to the best team in the world [Madrid], not that it's my wish or that I would.
"It's clear that everyone, every player, wants to go to play at Real Madrid but I think that if there isn't the space you need, it isn't the most appropriate thing.
"I hope this is all [taken care of] as quickly as possible. Honestly, I'm already tired of the subject of repurchase or not repurchase. I want to stop relying on others and only depend on myself. I hope it ends soon."
