Sevilla are keen to add to their attacking ranks after the departure of Luis Muriel and they are targeting Alvaro Morata, whose agent Juanma Lopez met with the Andalusian club's sporting director Joaquin Caparros on Monday.

The Spanish club are interested in bringing the forward back to La Liga as he has struggled to settle at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are reportedly ready to turn to AC Milan flop Andre Silva in their search for a new striker to replace Alvaro Morata.

Caparros also said that the Spain global want to join Sevilla, but admitted that reaching a deal with Chelsea for the former Real Madrid striker will be hard.

Chelsea are believed to be happy for the striker to depart, but only when they have signed a suitable replacement for the £150,000-a-week man.

As reported by the club's official website, the Spaniard has not been risked by Blues boss Maurizio Sarri as the team bid to win the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final at Wembley.

"In his best season at Madrid he scored 20 goals, so he will be able to have a very good second part of the season and he will try to reach his best".

Eden Hazard has been prefered to him in recent weeks as Sarri introduced a false nine into his formation while Olivier Giroud has also provided competition for Morata over the last 12 months.
