If reports by highly rated pro Real Madrid Spanish media outlet AS Sport is anything to go by, Alvaro Morata will be playing in the Premier league next season. Arsenal have constantly been linked the signing of the Juventus star in the last two months with reports claiming Arsenal have been in talks with Real Madrid with a view of signing the player.
Morata though currently at Juventus is still technically a Real Madrid player has Los Blancos have a clause in his contract which enables Real Madrid to buy him back for a fix amount every season till 2018. After impressing in Italy, Real Madrid are said to be ready to buy him back and resell him to any club that is willing to pay the highest for him.
The player has been linked with a move to PSG, Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal. AS however confirms Arsenal have won the race to sign the player and are only waiting for the European Championship to be over before bringing the player to England for his medical.
If the report is true, then it certainly means Arsenal have dropped interest in Jamie Vardy and decides upon Morata instead.
