Arsenal fans are looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern at the latest news from the Daily Mail, who seem to be under the impression that Arsenal could well be about to land another forward to boost their title hopes.
The Gunners are flying high and look like finally at least being in contention to land another trophy and finally be able to put to bed their long wait for silver wear, and in order to do so, it seems that they have targeted Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata.
The young Spaniard is also wanted by fellow North London side Tottenham Hotspur, yet it seems that Arsene Wenger will win the chase for the young star – at least on a temporary basis.
Real Madrid and Carlo Ancelotti are thought to be prepared to allow the talented young star out on loan for the rest of the season, with Jese being the preferred back up to current number one forward Karim Benzema. As one of our punters quips, that would be quite a coup for Wenger and would also allow Olivier Giroud some much needed rest and take a certain amount of the pressure of the Frenchman’s shoulders.
Will Wenger land Morata? Let us know your thoughts below.
