Arsenal’s bid to sign Alvaro Morata in the summer is looking shaky with reports in Spain suggest that Carlo Ancelotti is making last gasp effort to persuade the 21 year old to ignore the Gunners and stay put in Madrid.
Arsenal have been on the trail of the young striker for almost a season now, and reports emerged in February this year that he had agreed personal terms with the Gunners. Spanish journalist, Guillem Balague said back in February that the player had agreed personal terms with Arsenal; even though some people doubted him, the truth is a couple of other sources went ahead to report similar story.
The latest on the player’s attempt to leave the Spanish club is coming from Fichajes, which is reporting that Carlo Ancelotti wants the player to remain with the club. The report states that the Italian considers the 21 year old as a future star, and is prepared to make him stay by giving him more minutes on the field. Convincing the Spanish Under-21 star to stay and not make the move to Arsenal is going to be a lot of work considering the strength of the Madrid team.
The player, whose contract with Real Madrid expires in 2015, is not convinced he has a future at the club. Back in January this year, reports emerged that the player had agreed to join the Gunners on loan, but the move was not sanctioned by his club.
Aside from Arsenal, Inter Milan and a few others have indicated interest in the 21 year old player whose contributions to the Madrid team have been limited to bench role. Arsenal are favourites for his signature considering the fact that Wenger holds a long term interest in the player.
Arsenal have been linked with a move for a few other strikers in Europe, and could be set for a very busy summer considering the fact that the boss wants to strengthen some key areas of the team.
Arsenal have also been linked with a move for signature of Mario Mandzukic, Loic Remy, Seydou Doumbia, and a few others.
