Arsenal fans who are by now getting desperate to see which striker their club will sign this summer don’t have to wait much longer. According to a report by Sky Italia, Alvaro Morata could become a Gunner in the next one week.
With sky Italia which is a subsidary of the Skysports group confirming the news, it is safe to assume it is now a matter of when and not if Morata will be signing for Arsenal. Sky are one of the most reliable media out lets out there and if they say we are signing the Spaniard, we sure are.
Real Madrid were said to be waiting for more clubs to join the race for the player’s signature but with PSG pulling out and Chelsea signing Michy Batshuayi, only Arsenal remain interested in the player and with Madrid ready to spend big again in the summer transfer window, they need to sell before buying.
Arsenal are said to be ready to offer the Spaniard as much as £155,000 a week which will make him one of Arsenal’s highest paid players. Real Madrid reportedly want £38 million for the player which considering the ongoing prices in the market is considerably cheap.
Aside Morata, Arsenal are said to also be interested in signing Julian Draxler and will have to pay as much as 45 million to sign the former Schalke 04 attacker.
