Apparently, Diego Costa has handed in a transfer request and the Italian tactician is set to make seek alternatives in case the London club fails to hold on to Costa.
Report indicate Real Madrid star Alvaro Morata is a summer transfer target for a number of top European clubs, and clubs like Manchester United and Arsenal seem to provide tough battle to West London club Chelsea for the former Juventus player.
According to a Report from Spain via Sportwitness, the Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has already assured the player that he will play a key role at Stamford Bridge. Lack of first team opportunity forced the Spaniard out of Turin earlier this summer and a first team promise could well be a major factor in his decision now.
