In recent times, two EPL giants Chelsea and Arsenal have been interested in signing Alvaro Morata. However, Florentino Perez has maybe provided them with a boost with his latest update.
A Spanish source Diario Gol reported that the 24-year-old Spanish striker has threatened to leave the Bernabeu due to lack of game time. And as things stands now, the club President has also confirmed that he can leave for a fee of €60million.
“If you bring 60 ‘kilos’ you can leave tomorrow.” he was quoted.
Morata left Juventus to re-join the Los Blancos last summer. This season so far in 25 appearances, he has scored 9 goals and has also provided 4 assists.
Manager Zinedine Zidane mainly prefers using Karim Benzema in the starting XI, so Alvaro has mostly warmed the bench and has only started just 11 games in all competitions.
Diario Gol additionally reported that the Spaniard has some offers from the Premier League and Arsenal are the one that have the most strength to persuade him. This basically means that the Gunners are favorites to agree his signing.
Alvaro Morata is a top quality center forward whose peak years are ahead of him and can add more value to Arsene Wenger’s squad if he should eventually come around.
