In a news that will certainly delight Arsenal fans, reports claim Arsenal have been cleared to sign Alvaro Morata and the player will undergo a medical with Arsenal this week. The player was initially thought to be on his way to Chelsea but newer reports claim the Blues are more interested in signing Graziano Pelle from Southampton. The Blues are said not to be willing to spend big on another striker after they signed Michy Batshauyi from Olympic Marseile.
Earlier reports today had indicated that we are ready to offer Morata as much as £144,000 a week which will make him one of our highest paid players. Real Madrid are reportedly willing to sell the player for £38 million but with only Arsenal interested, Wenger is working on a cut price deal and it seems he is succeeding.
It is believed that a bid of £33 million will be accepted by Real Madrid for the player. Which if true will work perfectly for Arsenal especially as other strikers who are not as good as Morata are being sold for far more than £33 million.
