Juventus are preparing a move to take Alvaro Morata back to Serie A after a tough first season at Chelsea.

Morata began life at Stamford Bridge in prolific fashion after his move from Real Madrid last summer, scoring six goals in his first six appearances, but has struggled to maintain his form throughout a lengthy Premier League season.

The January arrival of Olivier Giroud brought fresh competition for the Spaniard which has saw him reduced to the bench on five occasions.

The Independent has reported that Massimiliano Allegri would be interested in offering Morata a route out of west London with a return to Turin.

Morata spent two seasons in Serie A with Juve, but only managed 27 goals in 93 matches in all competitions.

Nonetheless, Allegri, who has committed to another season with the Italian champions despite interest from Chelsea, is looking to improve his squad as he looks to mount another challenge for Champions League glory next season.

Juve could look to take advantage of an uncertain period for Chelsea, who are still deliberating on the future of current manager Antonio Conte.

Reports in Italy, however, suggest that any move for Morata would be temporary in the form of a financed loan, similar to that of Juan Cuadrado’s two-year temporary spell at Juve before making his switch from Chelsea permanent in 2017.

It is, however, a deal that might not fly with Chelsea this time round given the amount they paid for the 25-year-old last summer. Morata signed a five-year deal with Chelsea just last summer worth £70million.
