Arsenal target now chased by three Italian clubs
Arsenal are thought to be looking to sign a striker, following the injury to Theo Walcott that will rule the England international out for rest of the season, and were linked with a move for Morata.
The Spanish youngster has fallen down the pecking orders at the club behind Karim Benzema and Jese Rodriguez and insisted that although he is not looking for a move but should his situation doesn’t improve (regular chances at the club), he could seek for options elsewhere.
It was reported that Arsenal could be interested in buying him on loan, while reports in Spain emerged that the agent of the striker was in London to negotiate a deal for his client.
Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has refuted such claims and clearly said the player will not leave in the winter transfer window. Assistant coach Paul Clement further echoed on those lines as well though admitted the situation could change next summer.
Now, according to Spanish newspaper El Confidential, Italian clubs have asked about the possibility of taking Morata on loan.
Sky Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio claims that Juventus have also entered the race to sign the highly rated youngster. Real Madrid would be willing to negotiate a deal, if any interested parties can come up with a fee in the range of €12m and €14m.
