But Chelsea believe that the €100m which will be required to sign both of them could be better invested somewhere else and paying over the odds for the two Juventus players.

The only worry for Chelsea will be that Morata's finishing was substandard to say the least in the second half of last season.

David Luiz has insisted that he wants to stay at Chelsea following the appointment of Maurizio Sarri as head coach.

"I love this philosophy", he said of Sarri. We are a little behind physically speaking but I am happy with this result.

"There's a lot to take from previous year", Pulisic said in an exclusive interview with goal.com. We play high, with a lot of possession of the ball, in a technical way. When asked how he feels physically now, the Brazilian smiled and replied: "I had a lot of time to take care of me, so now I'm 100 percent". Last season we had a good start, but we couldn't really keep it going.

"People know me - I like to be happy, to enjoy my life".

Academy prospects Ethan Ampadu and Callum Hudson-Odoi were given another opportunity to impress from the start and showed promising flashes, with the latter afforded 82 minutes on the pitch.

"I won't deny that with the addition of Cristiano Ronaldo we've got a quality attacking department that's a bit crowded", Marotta Sky Italia. He has many players who can play with four in the back, three in the back, five in the back, so he is the one to decide. "If we're dedicated every day and doing things every single day in training, we're trying to learn quickly".

It remains to be seen if the 27 year old forward cum wing-back will play a part in the encounter against the Nerazzurri as they continue their pre-season programme at Allianz Riviera Stadium.
