Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been sat quietly by the pool table as they don’t expect their side to complete much business this month, though the latest reports have sparked them into life.
Spanish outlet Ok Diario state that the Gunners are set to move on their long-term interest for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, with Arsene Wenger reportedly believing the 24-year-old Spaniard can form a great partnership with Olivier Giroud.
The suggestions indicate that Wenger may be prepared to shift from the 4-2-3-1 formation he has utilised in recent seasons to make room for the two strikers, although that would make it difficult to fit in the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Granit Xhaka.
However, our landlord isn’t too convinced by the stories as he feels Arsenal will be content with the options they currently have, with Olivier Giroud returning to form in the last month and Alexis Sanchez excelling in a forward role this season.
Would Morata be a good signing for Arsenal? Let us know in the comments below!
