Chelsea forward Alvaro Morata has arrived at a personal agreement to join Atletico Madrid, says Spanish football expert Guillem Balague.
Balague said the deal is subjected to Chelsea signing a replacement and Atletico selling a striker.
Chelsea are said to be reportedly close to signing Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain, who is presently on loan at AC Milan.
Morata, 26, joined Chelsea for a then whooping club record of £60m in July 2017 but has struggled this season.
The Spain international, who signed a five year contract when moving to Stamford Bridge, was omitted out of the squad for five of their past seven Premier League matches and has scored nine goals in 24 matches in all competitions this season.
Balague said Morata arrived at an agreement with Sevilla but changed his mind after being contacted by Atletico, another La Liga side.
Nikola Kalinic or Gelson Martins are the players most probably to be sold by Spanish side Atletico.
“It seems to be a matter of finding a buyer for Kalinic,” Balague said.
