According to reports making the round, Arsenal are set to beat Chelsea in signing Alvaro Morata this summer.
AS suggest Arsenal are willing to offer him a very lucrative wage by offering him double his wage to £144,000-a-week in an attempt to lure him to the Emirates.
The report further states Arsenal reignited their interest in the Spaniard after missing out in signing Leicester City’s striker Jamie Vardy.
Morata spent the last two at Juventus but Real Madrid exercised a buy-back clause of £23million on Tuesday to take him back.
His agent Juanma Lopez had given an update on his in-demand client’s future.
“He still has offers from top clubs in the Premier League,” Lopez told Spanish publication AS, as cited by the Evening Standard. “As things stand he is a Madrid player from July 1. Whether he will stay or not, you have to ask Real Madrid.”
If this deal should pull through he will earn more than Mesut Ozil who earns £140,000-a-week, while Alexis Sanchez’s deal is worth £130,000-a-week.
