Morata a Target For Arsenal And Juventus

Real Madrid’s summer transfer window is going to be an occupied one with Luis Suarez entering their radar with a bid of €70 million expected to take place in the summer while there are other players who could be seeing their way out of the Santiago Bernabeu.

Alvaro Morata has been a target of Arsenal since last summer and they still remain interested in signing the young attacker and it was confirmed that Arsene Wenger has spoken directly with Zinedine Zidane as the French tactician wants to try a different approach to sign Morata from Real Madrid without having to pay an astronomically high price tag for the 21 years old forward.

Juventus is also interested in Alvaro Morata and they have offered €12 million for him but Madrid will only take into consideration a considerably higher bid.

Arsene Wenger wants to add skilled players into his squad with hopes of avoiding another injury crisis like the Premier League club experienced during the previous season when almost all of his key players were injured.

Real Madrid last year signed Asier Illarramendi with a price tag of €32.2 million but during his debut season with the team of Carlo Ancelotti he only managed on making 15 league starts as he struggled falling behind the likes of Luka Modric, Sami Khedira and Xabi Alonso from their role in the club and their position in the starting lineup of the Italian manager, Ancelotti.

Even though Illarramentdi struggled trying to get into the starting lineup of Carlo Ancelotti, he will not be offloaded to another club anytime soon as Real Madrid released a statement in their website which stated:

"The Bernabeu hierarchy has explained that a player's first season at Real Madrid is never easy and they are convinced that he'll up his game next campaign... The Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has also expressed his confidence with Illarramendi"

This means that Arsenal will have to search for another player in the transfer market which can satisfy their needs.
