Morata adds class to Chelsea's Spanish contingent

Arsenal head coach Arsene Wenger looks on during the International Champions Cup football match between Bayern Munich and Arsenal in Shanghai

On that note, are Chelsea ready to start the season or do they need to make use of the transfer market once more?

Chelsea have made some significant signings this month, with defender Antonio Rudiger, midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko and striker Alvaro Morata joining, but the only arrivals when the transfer window opened on July 1 were backup goalkeeper Willy Caballero and youngster Ethan Ampadu, who joined from Exeter.

Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo said Morata can make a huge impact domestically as well as in the Champions League.

"Also it was the last day of our tour, it was quite long and we looked a bit jaded tonight. If he stays in the right position, it is easier for us, for the team and to play good football". I am sure the striker believes in himself, but it would be understandable if the striker lost heart sitting on the Chelsea bench last season.

However, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was always going to sign another high profile star to replace the Brazilian-born star. The 25-year-old has already won two league titles with the London club, and is hoping he can add another one to the collection.

What does Alvaro Morata bring to Chelsea?

The 29-year-old Spain worldwide left the pitch midway through the first half of the 3-0 friendly victory over the Gunners at Beijing's Bird's Nest Stadium after a heavy collision with goalkeeper David Ospina. The club recognised me and the job I did with the players last season.

'He has a lot of potential to improve, the same as Michy Batshuayi.

Conte said: "My family is very important".

'I would say it's 80 per cent that he stays at Inter but Chelsea? 'He is a really good player who can play in midfield and can also play as a No 10.

The injury scare was followed by a two-goal performance by Chelsea's Belgian forward Michy Batshuayi before a crowd of 55,618 people at the Bird's Nest in the Chinese capital. If Sandro proves too hard, Chelsea could try and poach Benjamin Mendy from Manchester City's grasp.

After a few minutes of medical attention on the ground, the Spanish global walked off the pitch and did not return to the game.

With a return to the Champions League, Conte is assessing his options and reckons Cesc can support a lone striker like Eden Hazard.
