Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata is wanted by Juventus this summer but according to fresh reports, Borussia Dortmund have also joined the race for his signature.

Morata, 25, has endured a tough first season in English football after his £70million transfer from Real Madrid.

Peter Stoger's side remain keen to land Michy Batshuayi on a permanent deal from Chelsea after the Belgian global impressed during his six-month loan spell in the Bundesliga.

When Morata arrived at Stamford Bridge from Real Madrid in a club-record deal, we hoped that it'd be the start of a new era. He has scored 13 goals in all competitions for the Blues but has struggled to cement a regular place in the team.

The Independent claim that Juventus' interest in re-signing Morata is genuine.

Whilst at Real, Morata won La Liga twice and is a two-time Champions League victor before a lack of first-team opportunities led to a loan move to Juventus.

Chelsea still rate Michy Batshuayi and want to keep old of the striker in the event that manager Antonio Conte is not at the club next season, leaving it up to a potential next boss to make the decision on whether Batshuayi has a future at Stamford Bridge. The Italian is expected to leave in the summer and has said his future will be clarified after Saturday's FA Cup final against Manchester United, per Sam Dean at the Telegraph.

Dortmund will also be looking to strengthen but Morata's history with Juventus suggests he may find it hard to turn his former team down if they do come calling.
