The Arsenal supporters here in the Transfer Tavern are still in celebratory mode following the arrival of Granit Xhaka, who completed a move to the Gunners from Borussia Monchengladbach earlier this week.
The Gunners are expected to continue their summer spending spree and next on the agenda could be a striker, with our landlord spotting some interesting news in his copy of The Sun today.
The report claims that Real Madrid are willing to sell them Alvaro Morata this summer but only if the North London-based club cough up the £38 million that the Spanish giants want to recoup for their player.
Arsenal could face competition for the 23-year-old with Chelsea also interested in the forward, who has spent the last two seasons at Juventus.
One Arsenal fan is chatting to the Tavern’s bar staff about this deal and he seems delighted, stating that Morata is a considerable improvement on the club’s current crop of strikers, who he labels average.
Arsenal fans, would you welcome this deal? What can Morata bring you that your other strikers do not? Is it all about goals with Morata?
