Arsenal join the race for £50m striker

Arsenal have joined the race to sign Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata according to reports today. 

The Spanish striker moved back to Real Madrid last summer after the European champions trigger a clause in his contract at Juventus, but has since struggled for game time at the Bernabeu.

Morata has been heavily linked with a summer move to Chelsea, whilst Manchester United are also believed to be interested in signing the Spaniard.

Morata has recently claimed that he feels that he is indebted to Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, who took him to Juventus three years ago.

Jose Mourinho meanwhile is also keen on signing the striker after giving him his debut for Real Madrid back in 2010.

Arsenal?

However, a report in The Sun today claims that Arsene Wenger has joined the race to sign the £50 million rated striker. It claims that Morata could be a replacement for want away forward Alexis Sanchez, who has so far refused to sign a new deal at the Emirates.

Wenger try to sign Morata back in 2014, but the Spaniard decided to move to Juventus for around £17million.

Since returning to Real Madrid last summer, Morata has been restricted to just 13 start in La Liga, including the 4-0 win over Granada last weekend, a game in which he scored two goals in the first half.

He now wants to leave the Bernabeu once again in order to find regular game time.

Will Morata move to Arsenal? Would Morata push Arsenal towards the Premier League title? Is Chelsea the next destination for the Striker? Leave us your thoughts.
