Report: Arsene Wenger makes Alvaro Morata a top summer target

Arsenal are more than keen on the Juventus striker.

Arsene Wenger has made Juventus striker Alvaro Morata one of his top summer transfer targets, reports the Telegraph.

The Frenchman is keen to add to his squad and improve the spine of his first team and that includes adding a top class centre forward.

That has been an area that Gunners fans have long wanted adding to, and it seems the long serving manager has heard their calls.

There are presumably a number of centre forwards in his sights, and Juventus forward Morata is thought to be among them.

The 23-year-old could be on the market this summer as Real Madrid may look to re-sign him and then sell him on at a profit.

If they do manage to do that, they will only sell for more than £30 million, meaning Arsenal will have to pay big to secure the Spaniard’s signature, although it is believed by the Telegraph that they could comfortably match Real’s valuation.

Juventus though are not keen to lose their man however, who has 25 goals in 87 appearances in two years, and are prepared to fight to keep him in Turin, but it is Real Madrid who hold the cards.
