Chelsea are interested in signing Joao Cancelo from Valencia this summer, according to reports in the British media.
Morata has the world at his very expensive feet.

Belgium's Michy Batshuayi is the only experienced alternative for the Italian.
It was hardly the best of starts. "He's strong physically, he has a good personality and great technique".
The 23-year old has refused to sign a new deal with Everton and is set to bid farewell to Ronald Koeman and the Toffees. The level now is already at the top.
"It will be hard, with the quality of their players, their fan base and the money that they can spend, but that's the Premier League".
