CHELSEA need to cut their losses and flog Alvaro Morata, according to Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher.
The Spaniard missed a sitter against Fulham at the weekend – and not his first of what has been a difficult season so far.
PA:Press Association4 Alvaro Morata has struggled at times this season – should Chelsea make signing a striker a priority in January?
The Spaniard has netted seven goals in 21 games so far this season for the Blues – but according to Carragher that isn't good enough.
In his column for The Telegraph, Carragher said: "The reality is I do not think that Morata will ever click at Chelsea, and I am sure the club think that too
“They have to be looking now for a new option next season.
“He is 26 and his career statistics tell you that he had not played many full seasons – 34 appearances in Serie A for Juventus in 2015-2016 is his highest league total. Chelsea cannot wait.
