According to Sky Sport Italy, Atlético Madrid striker Álvaro Morata is about to return to Juventus on a loan deal.
The former Chelsea and Real Madrid striker enjoyed a previous stint at Juventus between 2014 and 2016, where he collected 93 caps among all competitions, scoring 31 goals and serving 11 assists.
According to the report, Juve have reached an agreement with Atletico for a one-year loan deal which is set to cost €9 million and an option to buy for €45 million.
Juve will also retain an option to extend the loan for another year, should they choose, while the 27-year-old is expected to arrive in Turin this evening, ahead of medical checks tomorrow morning.
The stalemate in the Edin Dzeko negations with Roma is reportedly behind the move for Morata, with the Giallorossi struggling to complete a move for Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik who was set to replace Dzeko in the capital.
Morata scored 27 goals in 93 appearances for the Bianconeri, winning two Serie A titles, two Coppa Italia and a Supercoppa during his last stint with the club.
