Serie A titans ready to throw a further £15m at striker deal, huge blow for Arsenal, Man City and Liverpool

Alvaro Morata

It’s not been a great weekend for the Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool supporting punters propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern this Bank Holiday weekend.

That’s despite the Gunners’ victory over Norwich, where under-fire forward Olivier Giroud continue to frustrate an toil in front of goal.

Further bad news all round is emanating out of Italy it seems.

Juventus striker Alvaro Morata wants to stay with the Serie A giants beyond the course of this season, according to Italian outlet Tuttosport, via the Sun.

Since joining the Old Lady in 2014, the Spaniard has gone on to become one of the most exciting forwards on the continent.

Such is the nature of excitement surrounding the former Real Madrid man, the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City have been linked with making a move for him.

Los Blancos are thought to have a buy-back option over the 23-year old marksman, though Juve will reportedly do all they can to keep him.

They are understood to be ready to pay a further £15m to the La Liga juggernauts in a desperate attempt to forgo the aforementioned clause and retain his services.

Having secured their fifth consecutive domestic title, Juve will no doubt be turning their attentions towards the Champions League.

Is Morata the ideal striker to spearhead Arsenal’s attack? Will we see him in the Premier League this season?
