Arsenal target rules out January transfer move

Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata has dashed reports that he is set to quit the La Liga club this month and clams he is happy in the Spanish capital, as reported by talkSPORT.

Arsenal have been chasing the 21 year old since the summer but look to have missed out on him as have Monaco, Juventus and Chelsea.

Following the departures of Jose Callejon and Gonzalo Higuain in the summer, Morata was expected to play a vital role in the Madrid side this season with Karim Benzema the only experienced striker at the club.

However the season has only just started to take off for the Spanish uner-21 international who has featured in the last three games for Madrid, scoring in yesterday’s thumping of Real Betis.

Morata claims that he is more than happy to stay with his boyhood club and will take on any role they ask him to.

“Despite all the stories that have emerged, I am happy here,” Morata told AS.

“I have spoken with the club and the coach and told them I want to stay here.

“This is the team I have spent my entire life at and I will stay here and do whatever the club asks of me or needs of me, even if it’s to play a minimal amount of games.”
