Sevilla are firmly hoping to sign Alvaro Morata from Chelsea in January. The club has been negotiating with the player’s agent and are reportedly talking about a loan deal with the Blues. Sevilla director of football Joaquin Caparros firmly believes Morata wants to join his club, but has also revealed that a deal is still far off.
“It is true that we have an interest in this player [Morata], but it is a very, very complicated operation,” Caparros told the club’s official television channel. “The player may want to come here over other options, but it is very complicated. Chelsea are a club who are very difficult to negotiate [with].”
It is believed that Sevilla wants to loan Morata for six months, without an obligated option to buy the forward in the summer. Chelsea would rather sell Morata or include him in a deal which would bring Gonzalo Higuain from AC Milan to Stamford Bridge while the Spaniard will move back to the Serie A.
