Transfer news: Arsenal reportedly facing competition from Inter Milan and Juventus for Real Madrid youngster Alvaro Morata
Serie A clubs reportedly join race for striker
Friday 17 January 2014
Arsenal may have a fight on their hands if they want to sign Alvaro Morata after Inter Milan and Juventus both reportedly registered an interest in the player.
The London club have been repeatedly linked with a move for the 21-year-old although Arsene Wenger last week played down speculation.
However injury to Theo Walcott and Lukas Podolski and Nicklas Bendtner not totally convincing have led to reports that Arsenal are in the market for another striker.
Meanwhile Inter and Juventus are said to be both ready to offer £11m to land the Real Madrid striker.
Morata himself has hinted that he could be on the way out at the Spanish club.
He said: "Real Madrid have been my team since I was little and will be all my life, but I think the important thing is to have a relevant role in the team.
"If I ever feel that's not the case, I would look at other options. In football, it's very difficult to stay at the top and even more so in a team like Real."
