AC Milan striker Andre Silva, who is now on loan with Sevilla, is reportedly wanted by Chelsea to replace Alvaro Morata.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that Wilson has emerged as a target for Chelsea FC as Maurizio Sarri looks to bolster his attacking options at Stamford Bridge in the mid-season transfer window.

Reports in Spain have suggested that Sevilla's director of football, Joaquin Caparros, has met with Morata's agent Juanma Lopez to discuss a potential deal.

"The player [Morata] wants to come here over other options, but the negotiation with Chelsea will be very complicated".

Chelsea are reportedly ready to turn to AC Milan flop Andre Silva in their search for a new striker to replace Alvaro Morata.

Goal understand talks between the Spanish title contenders and the former Real Madrid forward's representatives have taken place , with Sevilla open to paying his £140,000-a-week wages to sign him on loan from Chelsea for the rest of the campaign.

In the report, Sevilla want Morata on loan for the rest of the season but it's yet to be seen if the Blues would want a loan deal for the misfiring striker.

They sit third in the table at present, seven points behind Barcelona as we approach the half-way stage, and are a strong contender to go all the way and win a fourth Europa League in six years. "But if it were done, I would not say so on television either".
