Having been rejected by Jamie Vardy, Arsenal now stand the risk of either having to play premium price for a striker or ending the window without having signed a striker at all. And according to reports, Morata may now be out of our reach. According to a report by Marca, a pro Real Madrid newspaper, Real Madrdi have rejected a bid of €60 million from Chelsea for Morata.
The player has been linked with Arsenal and Chelsea but if Real Madrid are not willing to accept €60m then they either are not ready to sell the player or want some ridiculous amount. And knowing Wenger he will certainly not be €60 million for Morata not to talk of paying €60m for him. The Spaniard is a good prospect but not a prospect that is good enough to command as much as €60 million.
If the report is true, then Arsenal has better start making moves for another striker and very fast. With Southampton striker Pelle who was initially thought to be on his way to Chelsea now offer to China, the Blues will certainly want to sign another striker and they could well come in for any of Arsenal targets and with the owner of their club having more money than sense, Arsenal may have no chance if a bidding war eschews.
