The former Juventus striker was reportedly unhappy with comments made by Chelsea assistant Gianfranco Zola, who said he needed to learn to deal with the pressures of playing for a big club.

Morata has been linked with AC Milan and Sevilla, but now Atletico Madrid have joined the race to sign the Spaniard and end his Chelsea nightmare.

Morata started brilliantly at Chelsea after joining from Real Madrid but finished his debut Premier League season with just 11 goals.

Morata has been linked with a return to La Liga this winter, with Sevilla among the clubs to have registered and interest in the former Real Madrid forward, though the club has admitted that a deal for the Spain global would be "very, very complicated".

According to Diario AS, Morata's agent, Juanma Lopez, arrived in Spain on Tuesday to negotiate the striker's move to Sevilla.

Sevilla were in the running for the 26-year-old but given they may now sign Munir El Haddadi this month, rather than wait until the summer, Atletico could have a clear run towards Morata.

However, Atletico manager Diego Simeone remained coy on the interest in Morata.

Simeone sees him as someone who can improve his team's attack, with former Chelsea man Diego Costa now struggling with injury problems.

Speaking after yesterday's 1-1 Copa del Rey draw at Girona, he said: "The only thing I'm thinking about is the upcoming match against Levante".

"It is true that I've heard this rumour, but he is not our player; he is Chelsea's and we have to respect them. We need to wait until January 31", he is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

'The player may want to come here over other options, but it is very complicated. "We played well in the second half".
