Arsenal leading the chase of signing £51million striker deal

As per reports from Standard Sport, the report has it that Massimiliano Allegri, Juventus manager has urged Arsenal target, Alvaro Morata to continue his career at Turin to continue his improving amidst serious interest from the North London club.

On Saturday, the Spaniard scored an extra-time winner goal for the Serie A champions, in the match against AC Milan at Coppa Italia, but it could prove to be his final game in Italy as his former club Real Madrid is preparing to activate his buy-back clause £23.3million (€30m) this summer.

The 24-year-old striker will then be set to be sold out for a profit by the Los Blancos, which could be in favour of the Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger who is on the hunt for a new forward this summer.

From the report last week, report has it that the Gunners made a £51million deal with the Real for Morata. Still, the Juve manager has urged the Spain international to remain at Turin. The manager told Rai Uno Mattina via Forza Italian Football that;

“His goal against Milan is a sign of consistency,”

“He’s a young guy and needs to stay at Juve for a few years, he needs to grow. But I have very strong options in attack.”

“This team is difficult to improve but we must try to do so, by improving the individual players.”

All the same, the Spaniard goal scoring record over the past two seasons at Juventus is far from forbidding, as the most opportune moments.

Morata has developed an inspiring habit of finding the net for Juve side, he scored in the Champions League semi-final and final last season, and netting at the extra time winner last week’s Coppa Italia win over AC Millan.

Morata’s future is up in the air, following two years with the Bianconeri.

Nevertheless, Allegri, who has led Juve to back-to-back Italian doubles, wants the 24-year-old striker to stay put and reject a move - just like the Spanish forward did last year.

Also according to reports, it reveals that Man United and Paris St. German are both interested in signing Morata but the North London as of now are the leading contenders to acquire the 24-year-old, and as it now, the Gunners, I think, will go beyond the £42.4m paid for signing Mesut Ozil to get a new striker this summer.
