Chelsea will soon place an official bid to sign Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, Tutto Mercato Web has revealed.
The 23-year-old is also a target for Arsenal but the Blues are strong favourites to secure his services.
The youngster was impressed by Antonio Conte's Italy at Euro 2016 and wants to join the 46-year-old at Stamford Bridge.
He made it clear that spending a whole season on the bench at Real Madrid is not in his plans.
"I don't have to prove anything to Zidane and Real Madrid," Morata told Cuatro.
"I'm not a Castilla player who is getting the chance to train with Real Madrid. The club will decide if I am to stay or not, but if I do continue my adventure in Madrid, I'll give my all to earn a starting spot.
"If that doesn't happen, then we will find a different solution. As of today I am a Real Madrid player and I cannot say anything else. I'd love to stay at Real Madrid, but I want to be important for a team and be in with a chance of starting.
"Things have changed a lot since I was last here, but now I am back and I'm happy with that. For the moment I am concentrating on the Euros, because we want to win it."
