After signing Jamie Vardy, practically done, Arsenal are set to sign one more striker which is understandable especially as reports claim Theo Walcott is on the way out of the club this summer.
And in what appears to be the longest drawn transfer this season for Arsenal, Alvaro Morata of Juventus has revealed why he may fancy a move to North London this summer.
Morata had this to say, “My wish is to succeed in Madrid, but Madrid have great players and what I want is to play and feel important .”
“Hopefully everything will be resolved before then, because it is uncomfortable to be helping your country with a phone in hand.”
“There are some offers from England that are tempting, not only because of the contract. I think my characteristics mean the Premier League would be a great destination.”
“With what I have learned in Italy, if I have the chance to learn something more in England I think it would make me a more complete player.”
“I am 23 years old and I want to progress, to play and learn from the best.”
The news of Alvaro Morata to Arsenal has been confirmed by BBC and Skysports and with this confirmation from the player himself, it has become real that Morata might move to Arsenal in the summer as he has been made the club’s summer prime target.
It is also no secret that the Gunners clearly need a goal scorer who can guarantee them at least 20 league goals each season and while the Spaniard might have scored only nine Seria A goals this season it is highly unlikely to be the case in Arsenal if he is signed as he will be playing in front of the likes of Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez, Santi Cazorla and Aaron Ramsey who have shown they are one of the best assist providers in the game.
Morata’s physical strength, pace and ability to play as a lone striker will suit not only the Premier League but also Arsenal and at 23, it seems the £30 million valuation of him will be a bargain in the future if he is signed for that amount.
