Alvaro Morata has been at Stamford Bridge for only a few months, but his future seems to be uncertain after the Spaniard's revelations about his dislike for London life.

Despite Morata later softening the statement by saying he would be willing to sign a 10-year deal with The Blues, oil-funded Paris Saint-Germain are reported to be monitoring the forward.

The wealthy Ligue 1 side is chasing the former Juventus and Real Madrid ace as they have identified him as an ideal replacement for Edinson Cavani in case the Uruguayan leaves Paris.

The rumours of Cavani's departure, the Ligue 1 top scorer in 2016/2017, follow his spat with teammate Neymear over a penalty kick argument between the two in a match against Olympique Lyon in September.

The former Napoli front-man scored 35 goals last season. He has netted 101 goals for Les Parisien since he joined the six-time Ligue 1 winners in 2013.

Morata shocked many when openly speaking that he had been homesick for his home country. He explained that one day he would return to the Spain capital,but not before winning silverware with Chelsea. There is, however, a possibility that he could be financially tempted to move to PSG in the summer should the Blues fail to win a trophy this season.

Morata’s performances at Los Blancos were impressive with 20 goals, six assists in 43 matches (all competitions), in fact proving to be a more effective player than Karim Benzema. The former scored 19 goals from 1.701 minutes played, while the French striker racked up 17 goals in 2.892 minutes played. But his lack of playing time ultimately forced him to join the Blues with Zinedine Zidane later admitting that Madrid should not have sold him. 

Morata's fine form has continued at Chelsea as he has scored seven goals in the Premier League this season, including one against Manchester United last week.
