£120,000-a-week Chelsea fan favourite started talks with Serie A giants

Juventus have supposedly opened negotiations with Chelsea about re-signing forward Alvaro Morata.

The Turin side are keen to bring the Spaniard back to Italy as a possible replacement for Mario Mandzukic, according to Corriere dello Sport.

The striker has been tipped to move to Turkey this summer, and Juve are believed to have earmarked Morata as their first choice to fill the space up front.

The forward netted 27 goals in 93 games for the Old Lady during his earlier stint there, between 2014 and 2016. However, he has managed just 14 strikes in 41 games for Chelsea.

Champions League quarter-finalists Juve are also believed to be considering Paris Saint-Germain’s Edinson Cavani as an option to Morata.

Meanwhile, Chelsea attacker Kenedy has reportedly developed as a possible transfer target for Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich.

Kenedy has had a frustrating spell at Stamford Bridge, with just 13 starts being made in all tournaments since making a move to West London in July 2015.

But, the 22-year-old is now impressing during a loan spell at Newcastle United, with two goals coming in eight games in the Premier League since the end of January.

As reported by the Sky Sports News, that has led to both PSG and Bayern asking to be kept notified regarding Kenedy’s availability during the summer transfer window.

The Winger who still has two years left on his deal at Chelsea has earlier indicated that he is open to a permanent transfer to St James’ Park.
