​Conte pushes for Chelsea to pick Real Madrid's Morata over Everton's Lukaku

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is nudging the club towards signing Real Madrid ace Alvaro Morata over Everton's Romelu Lukaku, according to The Sun.

The Blues are expected to sign a world-class striker in the summer and have been strongly linked with both Morata and Lukaku.

The club's technical director Michael Emenalo reportedly wants to bring Lukaku back to West London, but Conte feels that Morata would be a better fit for his side next season.

Conte has been a long-time fan of the Spaniard striker and played a huge role in bringing him to Juventus in 2014. Meanwhile, Morata is reportedly unhappy with his playing situation at Real and could fancy a summer move to the Premier League.
