Arsenal fans look downcast here in the Football Transfer Tavern after the latest claim from the Daily Star.
The publication seem to think that the Gunners are set to miss out on Alvaro Morata who is set to leave Real Madrid.
Despite leaving the Champions League winners, Morata is set to snub interest from the Premier League, where both Arsenal and Manchester United were keen on the forward star, and opt to make the move to Italy and join Juventus instead.
One of our punters thinks that whilst this may be a great move for the player, it is a massive blow for Arsene Wenger who was clearly very keen on the player having enquired about Morata in January, following up with his interest again this summer.
Should Morata do well, Real Madrid are thought to have included the option to buy him back in the first two years of his move and we think this is rather wise by Los Blancos.
Now Arsenal will have to turn their attentions elsewhere and we think that Wenger needs to pull his finger out this summer or risk getting left behind!
Arsenal fans. Do you think that Wenger should have moved quicker to land the forward or is this the same old story over and over again? Let us know your thoughts below.
