Deal almost done: Chelsea will sign world class striker who is desperately wanted by Arsenal


Chelsea are still in pole position to sign Spain and Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, Marca has confirmed.

The youngster will leave the Spanish giants during the summer transfer window.

He is also a target for Arsenal but recent reports have claimed that he wants to join Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile, Spanish football expert Guillem Balague has confirmed that Real Madrid will sell the striker this summer.

"Morata will return to training with Real Madrid, that is the only fact in this story," Balague told Sky Sports News HQ.

"Morata has asked Real Madrid for his wages to reflect those he got at Juventus and Real and doubting whether that is the best option.

"Real are willing to spend around €100m [£85.1m] to bring Pogba to the club but they need to get that money from somewhere, meaning they are open to the possibility of selling Morata.

"Real have put a €75m price-tag on Morata, which I think is a little bit too much for certain clubs.

"What's clear, however, is both Chelsea and Arsenal are interested in the player.

"This is another transfer that will go in the 'we will have to wait and see' pile as it depends on many factors. If he has to leave, Morata would like to go to the Premier League."
