Arsenal are facing a battle to land Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, after Italian giants Inter Milan and Juventus both registered their interest, according to the Express.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with a move for the 21-year-old in recent weeks, despite Arsene Wenger trying to dampen speculation at his press conference last week.

A striker has been become number one priority for Arsenal, with Theo Walcott out injured for six months,  and reservations as to whether the likes of Olivier Giroud, Lukas Podolski and Nicklas Bendtner can carry the club to title glory.

Reports emerging from Italy suggest that both Inter and Juventus are ready to offer £11million for the Spaniard.

Morata hinted at an exit from Real recently when he said: “Real Madrid have been my team since I was little and will be all my life, but I think the important thing is to have a relevant role in the team.

“If I ever feel that’s not the case, I would look at other options. In football, it’s very difficult to stay at the top and even more so in a team like Real.”

But with Arsenal only prepared to take Morata on loan, it remains to be seen whether they face losing out to either of the Italian clubs willing to pay cash.

Morata has struggled to make an impact for Real Madrid this season, scoring two goals in 12 appearances.
