Italian outlet, Tuttosport, have reported that Morata is reportedly close to agreeing on a deal which would see him return to Spain with Sevilla.
Morata's agent is in in London to secure his departure from Chelsea, with a loan until the end of the season and an obligation to buy in the summer the most likely outcome. Perhaps, he wanted to extenuate himself after Chelsea assistant manager Gianfranco Zola has raised questions over his performances, which turns out to be a very harsh blow to Morata, given his admiration at the club is at stake now.
Sevilla have looked like the favourites to acquire the 26-year-old's signature, but Atletico look set to do battle with their La Liga rivals.
Atletico joined the hunt for Morata earlier this week in an attempt to replace Diego Costa, who is now recovering from a foot injury.

Poland charges Huawei manager and Polish man with spying for China
He worked at Orange, a company that worked with Huawei to roll out next-generation 5G mobile networks in Poland, the BBC reported. TVP reports that the Polish national, "Piotr D" was a former high-ranking member of Poland's internal security agency (AWB).
"I think [Higuain's] scored about six goals for Milan having had a very good season with Juventus", he said.
"Some players want more minutes, some could be sold by the club, some could arrive".
Now Atletico Madrid are also reportedly interested in the striker and could make a move for him during this month. "We need to wait until January 31", he is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail. "We can only sign players later on".
Goal claims the out-of-favour Chelsea striker has held talks with the Spanish giants over a loan deal while his other options dally.
Instead, Costa and Morata could be lining up alongside one another in Spain during the second half of the season, if reports are to be believed.
