Chelsea eye summer deal for Morata

Morata topping Blues' summer wishlist

Chelsea have reportedly made Juventus striker Alvaro Morata their top target for the summer transfer window.

The Spain international has struggled for regular first-team action this season with manager Massimilliano Allegri preferring Paulo Dybala ahead of him in the pecking order.

Italian source Calciomercato suggests that the young striker may seek a fresh challenge in the summer, should he fail to gain a regular starting spot with the Old Lady during the second half of the campaign.

It is added that the Blues have been long-time admirers of the striker's talents, and could well launch a bid for his services.

Morata has made just eight league starts for Juve this term.
