Alvaro Morata could be heading for an exit from Stamford Bridge this month, as Sevilla are reportedly keen to bring the forward back to his home land on an initial loan.

Chelsea are interested in signing a replacement with Gonzalo Higuain and Edinson Cavani linked.

The report claims that on Monday, the Spanish club's director of football Joaquin Caparros met with Morata's agent Juanma Lopez to discuss a potential deal.

Sevilla, meanwhile, have found themselves surprisingly embroiled in a La Liga title race, and the Andalusian side are thought to be keen to bolster their attacking options for the months to come.

Her death was announced on her official Instagram account. "We request that the families' privacy be respected at this time". Neil married Pegi in August 1978 and they had two children together, 41-year-old son Ben and 35-year-old daughter Amber.

Sevilla would have to pay around six million euros in salary to the player and, if he is happy with what they can offer him, then the next step would be to talk to Chelsea.

Morata is also understood to be unhappy with the public criticism he received from Gianfranco Zola last week.

And his lack of celebration after scoring two goals against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup on Saturday has seen some suggest he would rather be anywhere else than Chelsea.

Quite where Morata would fit into the pecking order at Sevilla is unknown, with Wissam Ben Yedder and Andre Silva having netted 24 goals between them in all competitions this season. This is normal, he has to get used to it.
