Alvaro Morata scored a brace as Chelsea beat Nottingham Forest 2-0 in the FA Cup on Saturday but the Spanish international marked the goals by not celebrating at all, instead looking completely devoid of emotion.
According to Spanish media outlet Marca, Morata refused to celebrate the goals because he wasn’t happy Chelsea assistant manager Gianfranco Zola questioned his behaviour and performances before the game against Nottingham Forest.
The report claims Morata feels he hasn’t being backed by the club.
The player could be eyeing a move away from Stamford Bridge with Marca claiming Spanish club Sevilla are interested in the Spanish international.
Marca also claims German clubs Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are also interested in the striker having made enquiries late on Saturday.
Morata has scored nine goals in 24 games for Chelsea this season and it is believed he should have scored more for the Blues this season.
Morata has looked short of confidence this season and has been guilty of squandering a number of great goal scoring opportunities this season for Chelsea.
Chelsea have scored the least number of goals (38) among the teams in the top six and Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri reportedly wants the club to sign another striker.
Chelsea have now been linked with a move for Paris Saint Germain striker Edinson Cavani and the Blues are reportedly preparing a bid of £50 million for the Uruguayan striker, according to Daily Mail.
Cavani has scored 13 goals in 18 games for Paris Saint Germain this season and the Blues see the Uruguayan striker as the perfect replacement for Morata.
Chelsea have been linked with a number of strikers including Napoli’s Gonazolo Higuain and Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson but Cavani appears to be Sarri’s primary target in the January transfer window.
Cavani turns 32 next month and is PSG’s all-time leading goalscorer with 183 goals in 264 games. He has eighteen months left on his PSG contract and it is yet to be seen if the French club will be willing to let him go midway through the season.
Chelsea are desperate for a proven goalscorer to solve the club’s problems in attack and the Blues are hoping the offer of £50 million will convince PSG to part ways with Cavani.
Signing Cavani won’t be an easy task as Chelsea would face competition from China with a number of clubs reportedly prepared to offer a huge sum for him to make the move.
Is spending £50 million on a striker about to turn 32 really worth it?
