LONDON (AP):

Chelsea are set to strengthen their attacking options for their Premier League title defence by signing Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid.

The London club confirmed that they have agreed terms with Madrid to sign the 24-year-old striker.

The transfer will be completed after Morata's personal terms have been finalised and a medical examination has been passed.

Morata will be leaving Madrid for a second time. The Spain international was only bought back a year ago after two seasons at Italian champions Juventus.

Although Morata won the Champions League final for a second time in June, he was only a late substitute in the victory over Juventus.
