Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata is reportedly at the top of Chelsea's transfer wishlist.

Chelsea's main target in their hunt for a striker is reportedly Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata, despite rumours that the club are serious about a move for Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero.

Antonio Conte is believed to be in the market for a new goalscorer due to Diego Costa's likely departure from Stamford Bridge this summer.

Speculation surrounding a swoop for Morata intensified after their former striker Romelu Lukaku opted to join Manchester United rather than return to West London.

Torino forward Andrea Belotti and Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have also been linked to the Blues, but according to the Daily Mail, Morata remains the club's top target.

Their pursuit of the Spaniard has been made difficult by AC Milan, who have also reportedly put the 24-year-old at the top of their wishlist.

Media in Italy have claimed that Morata is open to signing for the Serie A giants.
