Arsenal fans have raised eyebrows here in the Football Transfer Tavern, as they hear the latest claim from Metro.
The publication think that the club will have to pay at least £25 million if they wish to land Alvaro Morata.
The forward certainly looks to be on his way out of Real Madrid after seeing Jese become the star who has been promoted from Castilla to the first team reckoning while grabbing his chance, and Arsenal are keen to make the most of this situation.
However, to land the Spaniard, Arsene Wenger will certainly have to put his hand into his pocket and that is not something that the manager likes to do.
Our punters are playing a rather competitive game of pool, and move over towards the bar to note that Arsenal certainly need a forward.
However, they might want to go for one who is slightly more established and proven if they are paying that kind of money for reinforcements.
The Gunners certainly have the cash, but they do not want to waste it, and Wenger will have to be sure before he brings Morata to England.
Could Morata well be an Arsenal star or would £25 million be better spent elsewhere? Let us know your thoughts below.
