Arsenal are putting everything on the line in an attempt to bring Alvaro Morata to the Emirates, with other top European clubs set to join the race for the striker.
The 23-year-old has spent the last two seasons on loan at Juventus from Real Madrid, but the Spanish giant seem set on activating a £25m buy-back clause.
Los Blancos will then open up a bidding war for the forward, who has shone in the big games for both Juventus and Real Madrid in recent years.
More recruitment is needed if the Gunners are to return to a side capable of challenging domestically and in Europe following another season of set backs at the Emirates.
According to reports from Spanish media, the Gunners have tabled a club-record £51m bid for the Spaniard, in an effort to ward off fellow suitors, and that Arsenal will double Morata’s wages should he choose North London as his next destination.
Morata scored 12 goals in 48 appearances for the Old lady last season, and will significantly improve any area of the Gunners’ current attacking roster.
