It is believed that Alvaro Morata is not interested in fighting for first-team football at Real Madrid this summer and the Spaniard could force a move out of Bernabeu. According to reports from a Spanish news outlet El Confidential, the 23-year-old has revealed his intentions of moving to Arsenal in a deal close to £58m.

There are also reports that suggest that Morata told some of his close pals that, “He does not want to die of disgust on the bench.” Staying at Real, the Spaniard will have to fight first-team regulars in the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, and Karim Benzema.

Despite Real activating the Spaniard buy-back clause, Los Blancos manager Zinedine Zidane cannot guarantee a starting XI role for Morata. The Spaniard bagged 12 goals for Juventus in the last campaign.

The Spaniard however, according to reports, is on the transfer list of top Premier League clubs with the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester United but the player is believe to be interested in working under Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and join the Emirates outfit if an official bid comes from the north London club.

Wenger is still keen on signing an excellent striker to the Emirates stadium this summer with Lyon and France international Alexandre Lacazette on his radar. The French according to reports turned down the Gunners first bid for Lacazette thought, there are reports that an improved offer is believed to be coming in days.
