Sevilla admits interest in Morata: ‘But a deal is very difficult’

Alvaro Morata

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.
