Report claims Arsenal has their work cut out in convincing striker to join them

Reports have linked Alvaro Morata with a move to Arsenal since the start of this year as the Gunners look to add more players to their attack.

The Spaniard is currently on loan at Juventus, but he might return to Atletico Madrid at the end of this campaign.

Juve intends to keep him, but they cannot do that on the terms they negotiated with Atleti in the summer.

They want the asking price of 35m euros lowered because he has just a season left on his current deal.

While Arsenal might not pay that exact amount, they seem willing to offer more than the Old Lady to sign him.

This means they are easily the club Atleti wants to do business with, but does the striker want to return to England?

Gazzetta Dello Sport, as reported by Sport Witness, claims there is a chance that Arsenal can sign him.

However, if he had to choose between moving to the Emirates and remaining at Juve, he would choose continuity.

This means the Gunners have a lot of work to do to convince him to join them in the summer.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Morata has been one of the most-traveled strikers in Europe during his career and he might be an Arsenal player next season.

However, he is struggling for goals now and that was the case when he played for Chelsea in the Premier League before now. He is probably not good enough for the Gunners.

  1. I know a little bit more about Morata than many of the other reported striker “targets” playing outside English football and think he might fit well with how we play

    Recent evidence indicates that the traditional number 9 that has previously been successful in the Premier League might not be the immediate future solution now

    Goal scorers in top Leagues outside of England don’t appear to travel well and score goals in the top League here, it’s clearly more difficult to do so

    Werner 28 in 34 in his last season in Germany, 6 in 35 here last season, followed by Lukaku, 24 in 36 in Italy, 5 in 20 so far here, even Auba & Laca had followed that path already, Auba 31 in 32 at Dortmund, 10 last season 4 this and Laca 28 in 30 at Lyon, 13 last season 4 this, neither hitting those previous heights in the intervening seasons either so not just a poor couple of recent seasons for them, there are other examples

    United had and have a number of quality strikers (inc Lukaku) who haven’t been able to deliver regularly in the Prem

    Even Kane, the most traditional number 9 over the years has dried up a bit this season, now plays deeper and has been outscored by Son, also not a traditional 9

    Meanwhile City & Liverpool score goals successfully another way and looking at the players we have now and where our goals have come from this season (Saka & ESR both on 9 in a dry season) we might just bring in a couple of players who can work with the attackers we have in a more City or Liverpool style, not as just an out and out target man

    An important choice or two to make in the summer as despite the two last games they could be the final pieces of the jigsaw if we can get our attacking 3rd right

    Try to enjoy the remainder of the season all

    Come on you Gunners

    1. I agree not many of these number nine strikers out side of England will hit the road running in the premier league, that is even more reason why we should be careful acquiring one..

      Maybe a player like Martinez from Inter who some time play as a false nine would be better suited.

      Forwards coming to the premier league has to strong and pacey for starter, a do like players with good work ethic like Sanchez, Martinez, Nunez and Suarez,
      Players in that mould would perfect for us now in and around the box
