Metro are the new flavour of the month for Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that the Gunners are set to land Spanish forward sensation Alvaro Morata.
The Juventus striker has been scoring for fun this season and looks like turning into the star he threatened to be at Real Madrid but never quite got the chance to develop at the Bernabeu.
As one of our punters notes, we think Real Madrid may have something to say about a bid from Arsenal and there are rumours doing the rounds in Spain that there is actually a buy-back clause in Morata’s deal that would see the La Liga side get first refusal should Juventus decide to sell him. That said, they would have to pay a bit more than they sold him for!
Morata, who has received two senior Spanish international caps, would cost around £60 million and if the Turin-based side receive this fee, they would happily let him join the North Londoners.
One of our punters wonders over a pint if Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho might throw his hat into that ring given he is a known fan of his former Los Blanocs starlet.
Arsenal fans. Would you like to see free-scoring Morata join in the summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
