Sevilla Football director Joaquin Caparros as ruled out the possibility of the Madrid based football club signing Chelsea forward Alvaro Morata.

The Chelsea striker has been subject to a transfer away from the Bridge as he has fallen down the pecking order at the London club. The Spaniard has struggled for consistency in-front of goal since the 2018 football year.

Several club monitoring his situation has offered him exit route away from the London club with Sevilla reportedly topping the list.

The Rojiblancos side have been keeping tabs with the player since the declared an interest earlier in the month of January, however recent revelations shows that the side have pulled out of the deal due to their inability to sign the forward.

Football director Joaquin Caparros was quick to suggest the reason for their last minute change in plans. In an interview with the media, he said: “Sevilla is a desirable team for any footballer and Morata wanted to come here, but when we started talking about costs, we realised that it was impossible,”

With Sevilla deal hitting the skids, Chelsea will turn attention to the European elite teams who have shown interest.

Athletico Madrid have shown interest in the player while Barcelona and Bayern Munich have been previously linked with the forward.
