So Arsenal fans are still no closer to finding out which, if any, new strikers will be heading to north London to play for the Gunners in the current transfer window, except for the fact that it will not be Jamie Vardy of course. One of the main candidates at the moment, according to number of Arsenal transfer rumours about him anyway, is the young Spaniard Alvaro Morata.
Juventus are claimed to be eyeing a move to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal this summer.
The Old Lady confirmed that they would be losing Alvaro Morata back to Real Madrid this week, with the Spanish giants set to trigger his buy-back clause following an impressive two-year spell in Italy.
Real Madrid have revealed that Alvaro Morata will be returning to the club this summer, and will join up with the first-team squad ahead of pre-season.
The Spanish international’s future has been highly speculated in recent months, with many news sources claiming that the striker would have his buy-back clause triggered, before selling him on for profit.
With Arsenal’s hopes of the Leicester City and England striker Jamie Vardy accepting the offer to become a Gunner this summer looking increasingly forlorn, you would think that the priority for Arsene Wenger now in the transfer market was to find anopther forward that he thinks will give Arsenal what we need to win the Premier League next season.
Arsenal have been told that should they want to sign Alvaro Morata this summer, they will need to stump up a tidy £6 Million per year salary.
The Spanish international is currently starring for his country at the European Championships, and netted a tidy brace to help his side to qualify for the knockout stages with a game to play.
Real Madrid are claimed to have postponed a meeting with Juventus in which they were set to discuss Alvaro Morata’s future.
The Spanish international’s transfer has been speculated in the press for the past few months, with Real claimed to be ready to trigger his release clause this summer, before selling him on for a sizeable profit.
Arsenal are linked with moves to sign Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Borussia Dortmund and Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City, but it appears (to me) that there would not be room for both in our squad.
Is Isco a Gunners target?
Isco is a player favoured by many apart from those at his current club Real Madrid and apparently Wenger is looking at ending Isco’s terrible time with the European Champions.
