While Morata has struggled in his time in the Premier League, he has long been highly rated and has had his moments in a slightly stop-start career.

One feels the Spain international perhaps deserved more opportunities at previous club Real Madrid, while he’s also been frozen out somewhat by Chelsea in recent times.

A move to Bayern could be just what’s needed, and AS claim they are looking at him as they’re increasingly convinced Lewandowski is off to Real Madrid.

Sky Sports recently reported the Poland international was looking to orchestrate a move away from the Allianz arena, with Chelsea themselves mentioned as possible contenders for his signature.

Still, Don Balon have recently claimed a deal for Lewandowski to move to Madrid looks likely, so Morata could be offered a way out of Stamford Bridge just a year after joining.

The Metro add that the 25-year-old would likely command a fee of around £58million were he to leave the Blues.
