Arsenal surely needs to sign a world class striker this summer. After years of failing to do the right thing in the transfer market, this summer, we absolutely must get it right this time. And judging by the early signing of Granit xhaka, it seems the club understands the need to do the right business in the window this summer.
And if you believe Italian journalist Tancredi Palmieri, Arsenal are set to sign a striker and it is no one other than Alvaro Morata who has constantly in the last few weeks been linked with a move to Arsenal.
According to Tancredi Palmieri, Arsenal had offered Real Madrid the €50m they are demanding for Morata and it seems inevitable that the player will be signing for Arsenal ahead of the other interested parties.
Reports from Spain earlier this week had claimed Morata’s agent had flown to Spain to hold talks with Real Madrid and the club made it clear they will be activating their right on the player by paying Juventus €30m to bring him back and then resell him.
The Agent went as far as saying Arsenal have a concrete offer on the table. He went as far as saying the player is already looking forward to playing in the Premier league.
From all the reports, it seems it is a matter of when and not if Morata will become a Gunner.
