A move for Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata would be ‘very, very complicated’, according to Sevilla sporting director Joaquin Caparros.

The Spanish club are interested in bringing the forward back to La Liga as he has struggled to settle at Stamford Bridge. 

Having joined Chelsea from Real Madrid for £58million to much fanfare, the 26-year-old has only scored 16 goals since signing in July 2017.

And Caparros would like to offer Morata a way out and a chance to revive his flagging career. 

The Sevilla sporting director has met Morata’s agent and is ready to propose a loan deal, given his pessimism over a permanent switch. 

He told the club’s television channel: ‘It is true that we have an interest in this player [Morata], but it is a very, very complicated operation.

‘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].’

Morata has started 11 games in the Premier League this season, scoring five times. But Maurizio Sarri has preferred to deploy Eden Hazard in the false nine role in recent weeks. 

Sevilla are looking to strengthen in the attacking third having loaned out Luis Muriel to Fiorentina. 

But there would be no guarantee that Morata would be handed a role in the first team as current strikers Wissam Ben Yedder and Andre Silva have both been in sparkling form so far this season.
