Arsenal started negotiations with €45m-rated Spain international

The London giants are reportedly one of the teams interested in a potential transfer deal for Spanish centre-forward Alvaro Morata as his future is thrown into doubt. Spain international is currently on loan at Juventus from Atletico Madrid, but he’s not exactly set the world alight in his second spell in the Bianconeri.

It’s therefore unsurprising that the Old Lady now don’t seem keen on paying the €35m required to make Alvaro’s move permanent, and this seems to have alerted the Gunners. The report also mentions Tottenham as possible suitors, with the Spanish striker’s agent looking for buyers for his client as he tries to resolve his future.

It would be interesting to see Alvaro back in the PL again, though it’s fair to say he wasn’t too impressive in his time at Stamford Bridge. The Gunners could do with more options upfront, however, with Aubameyang worryingly out of form at the moment, while Alexandre Lacazette is nearing the end of his deal.

Most Gooners would probably want to see their club aim a little higher than Alvaro, but the Spaniard might not be the worst option to consider if other moves don’t work out. The Gunners are reportedly one of the clubs who had been showing an interest in snapping up Inter Milan star Marcelo Brozovic on a free transfer.
