Transfers: Competition hotting up to sign Chelsea striker, director confirms interest

Morata move 'very very complicated', says Sevilla director

Scoring hasn't come easy to Alvaro Morata this season, but the Spaniard scored twice for Chelsea on Saturday as they beat Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup and he didn't even bother to celebrate.

Morata has been linked with AC Milan and Sevilla, but now Atletico Madrid have joined the race to sign the Spaniard and end his Chelsea nightmare. Five things to know...

Morata appeared to start the new season as Maurizio's Sarri's first-choice striker ahead of Giroud.

Morata appears desperate to leave Chelsea having struggled in the Premier League since joining the Blues in the summer of 2017.

Morata may need to leave for more regular football and rumours began to circulate after he missed Tuesday's trip to Tottenham with a minor injury.

And Caparros has admitted he would like to take Morata to Sevilla.

Tim Tebow gets engaged to girlfriend Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters
Tebow, who has been looking for Mrs. "No one will be happier than me when I finally find the right person". When the time came for the proposal, Tebow led Nel-Peters out to the bench.

The former Juventus striker was reportedly unhappy with comments made by Chelsea assistant Gianfranco Zola, who said he needed to learn to deal with the pressures of playing for a big club.

Atletico joined the hunt for Morata earlier this week in an attempt to replace Diego Costa, who is now recovering from a foot injury.

"I don't speak about players that aren't with us, only those that are".

But, Morata's return to the Spanish League rests on Barca star Denis Suarez going the other way with Arsenal in contention for his signature but are unwilling to pay the £10m asking price for the 26-year-old.

"It was a dynamic match between Girona, who tried to hurt us on the break, and us", he said.

Instead, Costa and Morata could be lining up alongside one another in Spain during the second half of the season, if reports are to be believed.
