Alvaro Morata's miserable spell at Chelsea is set to come to an end as reports emerge that he has agreed to join Atletico Madrid.
Morata, 26, started at Atletico as a youth player before making his name with crosstown rivals Real Madrid.
He is now on the brink of returning to his home city to bring his time in the Premier League to an end.
Morata's impending exit comes as Maurizio Sarri tries to seal a deal to bring Gonzalo Higuain to Stamford Bridge as his replacement.
Nicolo Schira, a reporter for Gazzetta dello Sport, has described the Morata move as a "done deal" and says he will sign the contract on Monday.
Atletico are set to sign the Spaniard on an initial loan deal, with an option to buy him permanently for €55million (£48.6million).
Morata is understood to be willing to take a pay cut on his wages to secure a move to Atletico.
The striker currently earns around £150,000-a-week at Stamford Bridge having signed for £70m in the summer of 2017.
Diego Simeone is eyeing a striker to take some of the burdens off Antoine Griezmann with Diego Costa struggling this season.
