Arsenal have reportedly tabled a €30 million offer for Alvaro Morata, who is reportedly keen to join Mikel Arteta’s squad in the summer.
According to Corriere dello Sport, as relayed by Sport Witness, Arsenal are interested in Alvaro Morata in the summer transfer window. The Gunners have tabled an offer worth €30 million for the Spanish international striker, who is not keen on returning to Atletico Madrid.
Alvaro Morata’s career trajectory has been a mystery nobody knows how to solve. The striker has been performing below his capabilities wherever he has played, but clubs still tend to pay massive fees to get him on board.
The Spanish international seems destined for another big move, with clubs across the continent continuing to retain an interest in him. The last few years have been difficult for Morata, who may not get a permanent move at Juventus.
Juventus signed him on a two-year loan with an option to buy him for €35 million. That happened after Atletico Madrid decided to purchase Morata outright from Chelsea despite an underwhelming loan spell at the Wanda Metropolitano. The Bianconeri are reportedly willing to pay only €15 million, which is well below the valuations of the La Liga champions.
At one point in the season, Morata’s partnership with Paulo Dybala was blossoming, but now it seems both the forwards will depart the Italian club in the summer transfer window. Morata was reportedly keen on joining Barcelona earlier this year, but he may now ponder a return to the Premier League.
Arsenal are reportedly interested in the striker. There were rumours the Gunners may have wanted him at the end of January when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang left the club for Barcelona. However, Mikel Arteta decided to keep faith in his squad, postponing the search for a new striker until the summer.
Reports suggest Atletico Madrid already have a €30 million offer in hand from the Gunners for Morata, who is weighing up a return to the Premier League. The Spanish international striker may be keen to join Arteta’s squad and become a part of Arsenal’s long-term future.
Morata has produced a decent return of 11 goals and seven assists across all competitions, which may have been considered by Arsenal before spending big for the striker. It remains to be seen if the Spaniard makes a switch to the Emirates or if these are follow up stories from January and Arsenal set sights on another striker.
