Alvaro Morata has been pictured with his agent and Juventus sporting director amid rumours he will leave Chelsea this summer.

Just a year after joining Chelsea for a fee of £60million, the Spain international is being strongly linked with a departure, with Juventus and AC Milan interested in striking a deal.

Morata started his Blues career with eight goals in nine games but he slowly lost his confidence and was replaced in the starting line-up by Olivier Giroud following his January move to Stamford Bridge.

Moratas struggles saw him left out of Spains World Cup squad and he is said to be open to the idea of leaving the Premier League to revive his career.

And on Wednesday afternoon he was pictured in Milan with his agent, Giuseppe Bozzo, and Juventus chief Fabio Paratici.

After his difficult debut season in the Premier League, former Arsenal and England forward Paul Merson said he could not see Morata staying at Chelsea.

We talk about confidence, and hes lost his, Merson told Sky Sports. I cannot see him being there next season.

Theres talk today about him going to Juventus, I think that ticks the boxes. I just dont see him being at Chelsea.

I just dont think he suits the Premier League, hes not that kind of player.

By Christmas he had played more minutes than hes ever played before in a whole season, and that was at Christmas.

So, unless they give him another year and hope he gets better, but theyre not going to play him and [Olivier] Giroud up front. For me now Giroud is the main man.
