Alvaro Morata was a reported target of ours when he was at Real Madrid, but he eventually secured a move to Juventus instead.
We are once again planning to bid for him, however, with Arsene Wenger keen to lure him to the Emirates this summer, according to the Metro.
The Spaniard has been in fine form this season, netting nine goals in all competitions. This number is made more impressive when you factor in that he was used as a substitute for large parts of the season.
Despite only joining the Serie A side this past summer, he is already being tipped for a big money move. Real Madrid have a buy-back clause and Liverpool are reportedly interested too, but we are being tipped to secure his signature ahead of both.

The 22-year-old is likely to be a star of the future, and could certainly prove to be a fantastic addition. Arsenal fans may want a more established striker however, as Morata may prove to be something of a risk.
