Alvaro Morata could be on his way to Barcelona after his agent made contact with the club, according to reports.

The Chelsea striker has struggled to adapt to life in the Premier League since arriving in the summer of 2017, and was tipped to leave the club in the last transfer window.

Morata has dropped in and out of Maurizio Sarris side this season and his team wants the forward to move on from London.

The Mirror claim Moratas agent has been in touch with Barcelona through intermediaries after an injury to Luis Suarez.

It is unclear if Suarez will play again this season as the striker prepares to undergo stem-cell treatment on his knee.

Morata began his career in Spain and came through Real Madrids academy before being sold to Chelsea.

The Blues will look to recoup much of the £60million they spent on Morata, but may find it difficult to find a buyer willing to pay that figure for the out-of-form goalscorer.

Morata has scored five times in 14 league appearances this season, but is continuing to struggle with the physicality of England.

The Spaniards finishing in particular has been a great source of frustration for Sarri and Chelsea fans.
