La Liga expert: This is why Chelsea are getting a top-class striker in Alvaro Morata


La Liga expert Terry Gibson says Real Madrid have made a terrible mistake in selling Alvaro Morata to Chelsea.

Gibson says the Blues have signed a dynamic striker who possesses a great first touch and knows how to score goals.

He will take over from Diego Costa who is all set to be loaned out for six months before returning to Atletico Madrid.

"I think this may prove to be a mistake on Madrid's part," he told Sky Sports.

"Morata is a dynamic striker that works the channels, he's got a great first touch and he'll control the ball where it is knocked up to him and he's good at attacking crosses - those attributes lend to doing well in the Premier League.

"He should have been playing ahead of [Karim] Benzema last season. I'm surprised Real Madrid have allowed a player like Morata to leave, bearing in mind he's six years younger than Benzema.

"Only Ronaldo scored more goals than Morata at Real Madrid last season and if he had played the amount of games he should have he would have got another 10 or 15 goals.

"At Juventus, where he was still a young man, he had a few injury issues which prevented him from scoring more than 20 goals in a season. I don't think anything will hold him back and 20 goals in the Premier League is well within reach."
