Tottenham Hotspur should go all out for Real Madrid star Morata

Tottenham Hotspur have made an offer for Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata ahead of the summer transfer window, reports Spanish newspaper AS.

What’s the story?

The North London outfit are among a number of top-level clubs who are believed to be interested in the Spain international.

The publication claims that Manchester United are also keeping an eye on Morata, while Chelsea are too trying to land his signature.

It has also been reported that AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund have registered an interest, while Juventus are keen to bring back the forward just one year after selling him to Madrid.

AS claims that Morata is keen on moving to the Premier League and as it stands, Chelsea is the most likely destination.

Should Spurs continue to pursue?

Absolutely. Chelsea may be the rumoured favourites right now, but Tottenham have plenty to offer a player of Morata’s calibre.

They are becoming a force in English football as they are the only club to keep pace with the Blues in the title race.

At the moment, just four points separate themselves from Chelsea with four games left to play, and while they may not have won a trophy since 2008, Mauricio Pochettino is shaping an impressive team.

Morata is likely to be looking for a club that can offer him regular game time as he has started just 12 La Liga games and one Champions League fixture under Zinedine Zidane in Madrid this season.

Despite his lack of starts, the forward has still managed to score 18 goals in all competitions, 13 of which have come in the league.

Harry Kane is Tottenham’s main attacker, but Morata has the ability to play across front three, so there is no reason why the pair could not play alongside one another.

The 24-year-old forward has power, pace and he proved while at Juventus that he can cope under pressure by scoring in both the semi-finals and final of the Champions League in the 2014-15 campaign.

Morata could be what Tottenham need to push even further forward in their development.
