Morata linked with return to Juventus, Chelsea fans react

Alvaro Morata had big boots to fill when he replaced Diego Costa at Chelsea last summer, but he has struggled to have the same impact.

In 57 appearances for the Blues in all competitions, the Spaniard has found the back of the net only 16 times and has created six assists.

This season so far, head coach Maurizio Sarri has started Morata in most fixtures, but the forward has only scored once.

Olivier Giroud is the only other viable option for the Blues, and he too is struggling in front of goal.

Morata has played for some of the biggest clubs in the world, including Real Madrid and Juventus.

Despite losing his shooting boots, The Sun reports that Juve may come in with an offer in January, which Chelsea would consider accepting.

Morata spent two years at the Italian giants between 2014 and 2016, scoring 27 goals in 93 outings.

On Twitter, some Chelsea fans expressed their delight in the transfer news.
