Premier League side Chelsea have reportedly been branded as difficult to deal with by Sevilla’s sporting director Joaquin Caparros as they look to strike a deal with the Blues for the services of striker Alvaro Morata.
Reports have emerged in recent times that the Blues are looking to sell the Spaniard in the January transfer window following his struggles at Stamford Bridge, with Sevilla understood to be keen to sign him.
However, his move might be hampered due to Chelsea’s transfer demands with Caparros confirming that striking a deal is becoming difficult.

💬 We are interested in Alvaro Morata, but it is a very complicated situation. He wants to come here but the negotiation with Chelsea is very difficult.

“We are interested and we follow this situation, but it is an operation that remains very complicated. The player may decide to come, but it is difficult to deal with Chelsea,” he said to Marca as quoted by Dailystar.
Despite Caparros’ claims certain publications have claimed that the Spanish club and Morata have already agreed personal terms, with the club willing to pay 5 million for the striker with an option to sign him for 36m at the end of the season.
Morata missed Chelsea’s recent 1-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in the first leg of the semifinals of the Carabao Cup due to an injury and has struggled for form and confidence ever since he moved to Stamford Bridge from Real Madrid in 2017, netting 24 goals in 72 games for them.
