Arsenal have agreed to sign Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata on a six-month loan deal, according to the Express.
The 21-year-old is regarded as one of the most talented young players at the Bernabeu - and reports suggest the Gunners have beaten local rivals Tottenham to his signature.
Morata, who has scored 12 goals in 11 matches for the Spain Under-21 side, hopes that run of first-team matches will boost his chances of going to next summer's World Cup finals in Brazil.
And although he has featured regularly for Los Blancos this season, the Spaniard has only made one La Liga start.
He is likely to receive more chances during a six-month loan spell at the Emirates Stadium, where Olivier Giroud has played every one of the Gunners' Premier League matches this season.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is desperate to bring in another striker in January as back-up for Giroud - and Morata, who has scored twice for Real Madrid this season, could prove to be the perfect solution.
