Spurs to battle Arsenal for £50.8m strike target

Spurs are, alongside Arsenal, interested in Juventus forward Alvaro Morata, according to reports from Don Balon.

The Spaniard has been an Old Lady player since leaving Real Madrid in the summer of 2013, and has thrived after being handed more game time in Turin than he was receiving with the La Liga giants.

However, his role this term has been diluted slightly, which has led to suggestions that he could move on at the end of the season, and reports claim that, although a return to the Bernabeu is the player’s ultimate wish, Spurs and Arsenal, as well as Manchester City, are keen.

The Gunners have been aligned with a move for Morata of late, with suggestions Arsene Wenger is willing to pay up to £50.8m for his signature having been doing the rounds.

However, Spurs may be able to offer the 23-year-old the chance to join their exciting project, with a new stadium being built in the white half of north London.

Morata has La Liga and Serie A honours to his name, alongside a 2013/14 Champions League win with Real – which was the club’s 10th European Cup success.
