Chelsea have been linked with moves for Alvaro Morata of Real Madrid, Andrea Belotti of Torino and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Borussia Dortmund with reports emerging this week that Chelsea are now interested in signing Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero.
According to a report on Daily Mail, Chelsea would rather sign Morata from Real Madrid than alternatives which include Andrea Belotti of Torino, Sergio Aguero of Manchester City and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Borussia Dortmund.
Chelsea now see the Real Madrid striker as the top target and will forgo other alternatives.
The Blues would depart for our Asian tour of China and Singapore today without Diego Costa, who has been linked with a Chelsea exit.
New £40m midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, who underwent keyhole knee surgery at the end of last season, won’t travel with the team for the Asian tour. He is set to stay in London and work on his recovery and fitness. Eden Hazard, who broke an ankle on international duty, will do the same.
