Our North London contingent here in the Football Transfer Tavern cannot wait to hear the latest claim from the Daily Express.
The publication seem to think both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are keen on the same forward this summer.
Real Madrid starlet Alvaro Morata could well be leaving the club this summer in order to find more first team opportunities and not only are Juventus keen on him but Spurs and the Gunners are willing to make a last gasp bid to land him.
Juve have tabled a final £16 million offer so both clubs would have to at least match that or they will not be in with a chance.
Morata is keen to leave Real Madrid where Carlo Ancelotti has refused to offer him assurances over playing time next season.
Should another forward come in to the club, Morata knows that he will not have much chance to start a game next season.
Playing Champions League football is important to the Spaniard and as one of our punters points out over a pint, that would not be happening at Spurs, so we think Arsenal might have a clear path to battle it out with Juventus for his signature.
Arsenal fans. You’ve been linked with Morata a lot over the last year or so but is he really the man to transform you into true title contenders? Let us know your thoughts below.
