Alvaro Morata’s future has been much talked about this summer, with reports claiming that the striker could well return to former Employers Real Madrid from Juventus, via a buy-back option included in his initial sale, before selling him on for a huge profit.
The player has since returned to Real Madrid for a reported £23 Million, proven the first part of the report true, but his future is still undecided.
Report claim that the striker would not be willing to play a cameo role in Madrid, which could see the Capital club forced to choose between French striker Karim Benzema and the recently returnee.
The Gunners have recently signed young Japanese Takuma Asano, but the 21 year-old is not the type of striker fans were hoping the club would sign, and the search for a striker will have to continue.
French international striker Alexandre Lacazette has also had his move to the Emirate ruled out today, with his French club Lyon claiming he is not for sale, and Arsenal are now believed to be looking to step up their bid for Morata.
Morata, 23, has shown himself to be a big-game player, scoring in five consecutive Champions League matches, including both semi-finals against Spanish giant Real Madrid in 2015, and the losing final against Barcelona the same year.
Report claim the Gunners are now looking to tempt him to make the switch to Arsenal, by offering him over double his current wage, with £144,000 per week thought to beat their rivals to his signature. The Gunners are said to have reached an agreement with Real Madrid who are said to be ready to accept a bid of £33 million for the player.
Arsenal according to reports are ready to give Real Madrid £33 million and should the club and the player be able to reach an agreement on personal terms, he will undergo a medical and become a Gunner in the next one week.
