Five things to know...

Therefore, according to Sky Sports, the club is starting to give more consideration to Callum Wilson, a player who has scored nine Premier League goals this season and made his England debut.

The Portugal global scored just two Serie A goals for Milan last season before being shipped out on loan to Sevilla in the summer.

Morata appeared to start the new season as Maurizio's Sarri's first-choice striker ahead of Giroud.

Morata may need to leave for more regular football and rumours began to circulate after he missed Tuesday's trip to Tottenham with a minor injury.

A question marks remains over whether Chelsea would be prepared to see Morata walk out of the door midseason.

'I don't speak about players that aren't with us, only those that are.

"He is an important player for us and we want to have him back [from injury] as soon as possible", he added.

Could Diego Costa play a role in Morata's exit?

The Spaniard has been linked with AC Milan and Sevilla, but now Atletico Madrid have joined the race to sign the 26-year-old.

On Wednesday sources told ESPN FC that Morata's agent travelled to London to meet with Chelsea officials and discuss a loan move away from Stamford Bridge, and Sevilla sporting director Joaquin Caparros claimed his club were the frontrunners after meeting with the striker's representative.

"Diego Costa would absolutely transform Chelsea's fortunes and, if it was down to me, I'd break the bank to re-sign him", Crouch wrote of the Spanish striker, who is now sidelined following foot surgery. "We can only sign players later on".
