Agent Of £58m Arsenal & Chelsea Target Confirms Offers From ‘Top Clubs’ In England
The agent of Spanish striker Alvaro Morata has confirmed the player has offers from top Premier League clubs amid reported interest from Arsenal and Chelsea
The opening of the summer transfer window is fast approaching so we’ll bring you all the latest transfer rumours and gossip from around the globe. Today, Alvaro Morata’s agent confirms interest from the Premier League….
The agent of Spanish striker Alvaro Morata has confirmed the player has offers from top Premier League clubs amid reported interest from Arsenal and Chelsea, according to the Daily Mail.
Morata’s future has been the subject of intense speculation in recent weeks after it emerged that Real Madrid planned to activate a £23m buyback clause that was inserted in to the deal that saw him join Juventus back in 2014.
The general consensus is that Madrid will then look to sell the 23-year-old on at a huge profit with the Sun reporting earlier this week that the Champions League winners will demand as much as £58m for Morata’s signature once he returns to the club on July 1st.
The gifted young striker is considered as one of the hottest talents in Europe so understandably there has been plenty of interest being shown with the Daily Mail claiming that Arsenal and Chelsea are heading the list of clubs hoping to lure Morata to the Premier League this summer.
The strikers agent, Juanma Lopez, has now been quoted by the newspaper as confirming that the player has offers on the table from ‘top clubs in the Premier League’ but his future won’t be decided until they hold talks with Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane.
‘He still has offers from top clubs in the Premier League,’
‘As things stand he is a Madrid player from July 1. Whether he will stay or not, you have to ask Real Madrid.
‘We will see. We still have to talk to Zinedine Zidane, but for the moment Morata is happy.’
Arsene Wenger is on the market for another striker this summer after losing Danny Welbeck to a serious knee injury and with Jamie Vardy now confirmed as signing a new deal at Leicester, the Gunners boss could now step-up his pursuit of Morata.
However, incoming Chelsea boss Antonio Conte knows the striker well as he was the man who took Morata to Juventus two years ago and the pair could now be reunited at Stamford Bridge as the Italian boss looks to bring in a striker to support Diego Costa next season.
We’ll have to wait and see whether either club will be prepared to pay the reported £58m that Madrid are wanting but Morata would be an exciting addition for Arsenal or Chelsea if they end up signing him this summer.
The Spaniard has a moderate goal-scoring record having netted just 12 goals in 47 appearances for champions Juve last year but he’s got a habit of scoring important goals and has the ability to become one of the very best in the business.
Morata has been enhancing his reputation at the European Championships having scored 3 goals in 3 games for Spain so Arsenal and Chelsea could face even greater competition for his signature if he continues to impress over in France.
