Transfer report: Dortmund eyeing up shock move for Chelsea's Alvaro Morata

"We're still not quite sure who the Chelsea manager will be next season and whether Morata fits into his plans and whether that manager will bring the best out of him".

Peter Stoger's side remain keen to land Michy Batshuayi on a permanent deal from Chelsea after the Belgian global impressed during his six-month loan spell in the Bundesliga. The Belgian scored 10 goals in 14 appearances before his season was ended prematurely by injury.

Morata endured a hard first season in English football despite getting off to an impressive start. Chelsea missed out on qualification for Europe's top competition and will play in the Europa League after ending their season in sixth.

The 24-year-old finished the season with 11 goals in 31 games in the Premier League this term to fuel speculation surrounding his future.

The Independent claim that Juventus' interest in re-signing Morata is genuine.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus are eyeing a swoop for the Spaniard this window and have already begun talks with Morata's representatives.

The striker's future at Stamford Bridge may also depend on whether Conte continues at the club.

Chelsea FC will take on their bitter rivals Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley at the weekend.

Just after joining Chelsea for a record transfer deal of £58 million from La Liga giants Real Madrid last summer, Spanish striker Alvaro Morata is set to depart the club.

Dortmund will also be looking to strengthen but Morata's history with Juventus suggests he may find it hard to turn his former team down if they do come calling.
