Juventus may consider re-signing Chelsea forward Alvaro Morata in the January transfer window, according to the Sun journalist Mike McGrath.

The Spaniard is short of confidence and has been relegated to second choice striker behind Olivier Giroud in the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.

Morata came on for the Frenchman with 25 minutes to go against Liverpool on Saturday, but after having started the first four Premier League games of the season, it is now apparent that Maurizio Sarri sees him as an understudy.

Much may depend on whether the Spanish international’s situation changes between now and January for a move to Juve to go ahead.

Morata played for the Bianconeri for two years between 2014 and 2016, scoring 27 goals in 93 games, before Real Madrid then triggered a buyback clause to see him return to Spain.

The Serie A side may be keen on signing a younger striker. They loaned out Gonzalo Higuain to AC Milan this summer, and their leading forward Mario Mandzukic is now 32 years of age.
