Manchester United are interested in bringing Arsenal target Alvaro Morata to Old Trafford in the summer.

ESPN suggest Manchester United will rival Arsenal in the race to sign the 21-year-old starlet.

There is a big possibility that David Moyes is going to be in the market for a new striker at the end of the season as Robin van Persie and Javier Hernandez could both seal moves away from the club in the summer.

A host of Premier League clubs have been sniffing around Morata - with Tottenham, Liverpool and Arsenal all reportedly keen on signing the Spaniard.

Arsenal were heavily linked with Morata in January but were unable to agree a deal with giants Real Madrid.

However the La Liga giants could choose to cash in on Morata during the summer transfer window as the £25million-rated forward's contract is due to expire in 2015.

Carlo Ancelotti's side are likely to want to cash in on the striker - rather than risk losing him on a free at the end of his current deal.

Morata has scored three goals in 15 games for Real Madrid so far this season.
