The Rossoneri are eager to bring in another striker to bolster their attacking options ahead of the 2018-19 season. Morata, who spent two seasons in Italy with Juventus between 2014 and 2016, has been heavily linked with a move with Gazzetta dello Sport reporting a meeting between the striker, his agent and Milan directors Marco Fassone and Massimiliano Mirabelli in London this week. Morata reportedly met with Milan officials this week.

With Maurizio Sarri’s side now hopeful of signing Gonzalo Higuain from Juventus, Morata’s future at the club has grown increasingly uncertain.

Clearly there is the need to convince Chelsea, who hold his registration,’ Antonini said. Higuain could arrive at Stamford Bridge.

A potential swap deal involving the 19-year-old shot stopper and Morata could be an option, according to recent reports in the Italian press.
