Alvaro Morata is reported as being one of the top transfer targets for Arsenal this summer. The under 21 international for Spain is widely believed to have accepted that his future lies away from the Santiago Bernabeu, despite having been a Real Madrid fan since childhood and being desperate to make his mark there.
Even though the Spanish giants sold Higuain and Callejon last season, Morata’s chances have become even fewer and if it was not for the injury to his young team mate Jese Rodriguez, Morata would hardly have featured in La Liga. As it is, the young striker has only managed the equivalent of four full games, so his return of six goals is very impressive.
Perhaps that is why, according to Goal.com, Real Madrid are preparing to offer Morata a new contract to persuade him to stay. It is not the money for Morata, though, it is the lack of game time. If the rumours about them going for Luis Suarez are true, Morata will have even less chance of playing so, unless they can promise him more time on the pitch, he will probably decide to leave.
But even that does nbot mean that he will be coming to Arsenal, because our transfer tormentors of last summer, Napoli, are also keen on the 21-year old, and they proved with the Higuain deal that they are not afraid to spend money. Do you think that Arsenal are going to lose out?
