Juventus have opened talks to sign former striker Alvaro Morata, who could leave Chelsea after just one season at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues signed Morata in a £58million deal from Real Madrid last summer after missing out on Romelu Lukaku, who opted for Manchester United.

The Spaniard hit the ground running at Stamford Bridge, scoring seven goals in his first eight games for the Blues.

However, Moratas struggled for form in recent months and has been troubled by a back injury, while Olivier Girouds arrival in January has further limited his game time.

Chelsea value Morata at around £50m and Juventus would rather take the Spaniard on loan for a season before committing to such an outlay.

Antonio Conte will be forced to choose between Morata and Giroud to start against Manchester United in Saturdays FA Cup final.

The Frenchman is in better form than Morata, having scored four goals in his last six appearances.
