Arsenal to sign Juventus star via Real Madrid

Real Madrid are ready to sell Alvaro Morata to Arsenal when they buy him back from Juventus, according to reports from AS.

Morata has been heavily linked with a move to the Gunners in the past, but Real have a buy-back option which will allow them to bring back the Spain international at the end of the season.

After his impressive display against Bayern Munich, Morata has also become a target for the German champions, and Real are now looking to activate the buy-back clause in order to sell him this summer.

The 23-year-old’s availability will be of interest to Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, but the attacker is set to cost around £39.5million (€50million) if Real re-sign him for £23.6million.

Meanwhile, Juve are already preparing for life without Morata in their attack, with Gunners superstar Alexis Sanchez one of their targets.

Morata has made 40 appearances in all competitions for the Old Lady this term, scoring 10 goals and supplying eight assists.
