Chelsea have set their asking price for Alvaro Morata as AC Milan step up their efforts to sign the striker.

Morata completed a £60million move to Stamford Bridge last summer but is keen to leave the club after a frustrating debut season in England under Antonio Conte.

Maurizio Sarris arrival at Chelsea has done little to change Moratas mind and it appears the Spain forward could be on his way to the San Siro ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Milans new director of sport, Leonardo, held a meeting with Moratas entourage on Wednesday.
