Arsenal reopen negotiations over Morata

Arsenal have reopened talks with Real Madrid over the possibility of signing highly-rated striker Alvaro Morata, who has emerged as one of their main transfer targets, reports the Daily Telegraph.

Alvaro Morata

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is looking to add more competition and depth to his attack, with the club reportedly interested in Queens Park Rangers star Loic Remy. However, they have now returned to Morata, a player who they made an enquiry for back in January.

They will face competition for the Spaniard, with Serie A champions Juventus eyeing a possible season-long loan, while bitter rivals Tottenham are also said to be interested, after they failed in their attempts to have Morata included in the deal that saw Gareth Bale move the other way last summer.

Morata struggled to force his way into the starting XI this season with Karim Benzema usually preferred as the lone striker. Overall, 28 of his 34 appearances came from the bench, but he still managed a creditable nine goals. That came after helping Spain to glory at the 2013 European U-21 Championships.

The champions of Europe are prepared to negotiate over the possible sale of Morata, but they want a buy-back clause included in the deal, which would see him return to the Bernabeu for an agreed price.
