Arsenal are set to agree a deal with Real Madrid for forward Alvaro Morata as the La Liga giants plan to offload him in the summer, according to AS.
The Spaniard is currently at Serie A side Juventus and will be returning back to Real Madrid in the summer, as per the reports. Real Madrid sold him to Juventus two years ago with an option to buy him back for £23.6million.
Morata has been exceptional at the Turin side and could be planning to move permanently. The reports have claimed that Real Madrid will sell Morata to Arsenal while Juventus are also in the race to sign him permanently this time.
Also, Premier League side Liverpool were reportedly interested in his services earlier this year and could reignite their interest once he returns back to his parent club.
The 23-year-old is rated around £35million which would be a big money move for Arsenal.
Furthermore, German giants Bayern Munich are also interested in him after his impressive displays against them n the Champions League.
Morata has made more than 40 appearances for Seire A side in all campaigns since his move. He has netted ten and assisted eight goals.
