VIDEO: Arsenal target Morata scores for Real Madrid

Alvaro Morata

Arsenal linked striker Alvaro Morata is back on the scoresheet for Real Madrid.

With Real Madrid 6-1 up from the first leg in their Champions League tie against Schalke, manager Carlo Ancelotti elected to change the team around for the return, meaning a recall for Alvaro Morata.

The Spain under-21 striker was not even named on the bench for the first leg, and has not started a game for them since a Copa del Rey fixture in January.

The youngster has been linked heavily to Arsenal in recent weeks, thought to be frustrated by a lack of first team football.

A potential summer transfer remains on the cards, but Carlo Ancelotti has clearly not given up on him just yet.

With Morata showing his clinical ability to find the net if presented a chance, it's possible he may once again veto an approach from Arsenal and decide to keep the striker around for next season too.
