Arsenal claimed to have tabled €30Million offer for former PL striker

Arsenal are claimed to have tabled a €30 Million offer to sign Alvaro Morata from Atletico Madrid this summer.

The Spaniard failed to make the cut at Chelsea after joining for a huge fee previously, but has admitted since that he was struggling with some mental issues during his time in London.

The thought of returning to London to play under Mikel Arteta doesn’t put him off however, with Corriere Dello Sport claiming he would gladly join to play under his Spanish counterpart, with Sport Witness citing Ivan Zazzaroni for his claim that Arsenal have already tabled an offer, which is equal to around double what Juventus are currently willing to pay to keep him permanently.

The Old Lady currently have the striker on loan from Atletico, and he has been impressing alongside January signing Dusan Vlahovic in a new-look attack, and while they are willing to keep him beyond his current loan, they are said to be unwilling to match the €35 Million pre-agreed fee which was included in his loan deal.

With Alvaro having struggled in the Premier League previously, and with him seemingly relishing playing in a front two at present, signing him to lead the line for us doesn’t make too much sense to me personally. While he can be very clinical at times, more often than not it is his consistency at being caught offside that shines through, and I believe there is better options out there.

If Morata is willing to come in as back-up to real top out-and-out striker than that is a different story, but I’m hoping our club is more serious than the former Real Madrid academy star to lead our line going into the new season.

What are your thoughts on Morata?

Video – Mikel Arteta post-Brighton “It’s time to criticise ourselves”

  1. Doesn’t matter who we sign if we don’t change tactics to allow more attacking flexibility.

    Having 2 inverted wingers kills the space for our striker as both cut in resulting in him dropping deep…in our system anyway.

  2. Arsenal should go for Wayne Rooney. Rooney like Tom Brady has unfinished business on the field and wants to play for Arsenal next season. The free agent is asking only 20k p/w. Shirt sales alone make this a know brainer. His goals, his hold up play his legendary status and his karaoke performances would inspire Arsenal’s young players and help us win the League next season. We must bank the break to make Runes a Gooner.

  3. Yeah, signing 30-year old who already failed once at Premier League seems like very plausible.

    We can criticize Arteta for his but let’s not get silly with these rumors either. It will never happen and Arsenal has not submitted any bid for Morata.

  4. Speculation I would hope. We need to start looking within our own structure sooner than later. A proper management of a football club with the knowledge and technical ability. These young raw talented players exist in every club (even at non-league level), you just need the right management team to scout, coach, kick bo**ock and bite, put your arm around them but most of all give them the coaching and confidence. Skills.
    Stop keep buying in big names that are well past it, has been and failures – otherwise it’s never going to be, other than has been club.

  5. This rumor is terrifying indeed, one it has been around before and secondly has got louder.

    Someone is pushing it and atleast the idea is held close to an insider chest

    This would be the clearest sign of a step backwards, this rumor is so disgusting, will never respond to it again

  6. Arsenal has a much bigger battle on hand than just the football matches they have to play. The media attacks and rumors will never go away. I am not even mentioning the role of the match officials and commentators influence. Just thinking of linking Arsenal to has been players like Morata and Hazard is not line with the process, but, if this is true, then it shows that Edu and Arteta never had a plan or probably lost it. I am really amazed that every player on the planet and even aliens too are linked to Arsenal. Those that have passed their best or have flopped at their clubs, always seem to be a great signing for Arsenal according to the journalists, while, emerging young talents are either discouraged to join Arsenal for the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester city instead. They (journalists) go as far to predict players that are seriously considering Arsenal to be flops before kicking a ball in the premier league. And, when they cannot stop the transfer, they try to influence the player’s price tag and wages with astronomical inflation. The hate for Arsenal is surely vivid.

  7. “What are your thoughts on Morata” asks Patrick!

    Whatever makes him think we have any thoughts at all about this latest false rumour??
    IF, which I deny, I were to think about it at all, I would once again conclude it is just the latest in the never ending line of false rumours about who we are supposedly interested in.
