Sensation reports in the media today claim Arsenal are only a matter of days away from announcing the signing of a truly world class striker. The reports claim Arsenal and Real Madrid have reached an agreement for Alvaro Morata and the Juventus forward will be joining Arsenal. This is despite interest from PSG in the player.
PSG were said to be keen on signing Morata as the replacement for Zlatan but have been encouraged in their pursuit of Everton’s Romelu Lukaku who will be joining them before the Euro cup starts for a reported fee of £65 million.
This development means Arsenal now have a free ride on their way to signing Morata. Although the report also states that Juventus are still confident they are able to convince the player to remain with them, it is however said that Real Madrid hold all the aces and the fact that Arsenal are ready to pay £50 million for the player which speaks volume.
Juventus can keep Morata at the Turin stadium if they are willing to pay Real Madrid £25 million unfortunately reports claim the Serie A winners are only ready to play £8 million and are only taking advantage of the fact that Morata seems to be settled in Italy.
