Morata is currently at Juventus, on a complex two year loan deal from current Champions League holders Real Madrid, who have the option to buy him back at the end of the spell.

The young striker scored his first senior goal for Spain this weekend, with an impressive finish against Ukraine as the European Championship holders won 1-0 and has attracted interest from Arsenal as well as the current Premier League champions.

In order to complete the transfer though, the Citizens would have to offload Edin Dzeko according to the Daily Mirro, a prospective target for Barcelona and Juve, and out-of-favour Montenegrin Stevan Jovetic.

Barcelona interest in Dzeko is by no means a foregone conclusion though, with an extensive hit list which, according to the Mirror, includes Fernando Llorente and Southampton’s Graziano Pelle.

The towering Bosnian netted a treble against Andorra in their Euro 2016 qualifier, despite only scoring four league goals this season and struggling to hold down a starting spot.

The Blues currently sit second in the Premier League, six points behind table toppers Chelsea, having played a game more.
