Arsenal: Real Madrid star most likely signing

Published Add your comment

Arsene Wenger will resist the temptation to spend big in the January transfer window and instead is most likely to recruit a Real Madrid youngster on a temporary basis.

According to the Daily Mail, the Arsenal manager has decided a loan move for Alvaro Morata would be the most sensible move, rather than splashing out on a new permanent signing.

The Gunners will enter 2014 as the Premier League leaders thanks to Olivier Giroud's header in a 1-0 win over Newcastle United on Sunday, but Wenger admitted his French centre-forward is in need of a rest after playing nearly every game this season due to him being the only fit, viable senior striker in the Squad.

Lukas Podolski made an instant impact on Boxing Day when he returned from injury to inspire Arsenal's comeback from 1-0 down at West Ham from the bench; the German can play through the middle, but it is felt he is most effective out wide.

It is clear the Emirates Stadium outfit need a new striker, but Wenger is traditionally reluctant to spend during January due to inflated transfer fees and players being cup-tied for Europe.

The report claims the French tactician's remedy to this is to convince Real Madrid that their young striker would benefit from spending the second half of the season in north London.

21-year-old Morata has been tipped for big things at the Santiago Bernabeu, but has only made one start in La Liga so far this season owing to the form of Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo.
