Arsenal to swoop on Real target as ban bites

Last updated : 15 January 2016 By DSG

Fresh from discussing his new acquisition and declaring him available for selection for this Sundays clash with Stoke it seems that more fresh faces could be on he way

Wenger knows he has a golden opportunity to win the title this season and that a world class striker could make all the difference.

The Sun have claimed that Wenger has rekindled his interest in former Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata who joined Juventus in 2014 with a buy-back clause of £26m in the summer

Morato enjoyed instant success in his first season, scoring 15 goals and winning the Serie A and Coppa Italia double but this season he has started just eight times in the league.

The 23-year-old started his professional career with Real Madrid in 2010, making some 37 appearances for Real Madrid and 83 for Real Madrid B

The striker has played at U17,U18,U19,U21 and the senior Spain squad

He is a technically strong player with great finishing ability and movement

In addition his height makes him good in the air and at holding up the ball

Morato has dawn comparison with the legendary Fernando Morientes.

Juventus signed a 5-year 20million euro deal in July 2014 but they may be willing to let the player go for the right price claims the report

The suggestion is that Arsenal will be in a strong position to do business with the transfer ban on Real Madrid effectively nullifying their buy-back clause.
