Real Madrid want Alvaro Morata buy-back clause

Real Madrid star Alvaro Morata - a transfer target for Tottenham and Arsenal - has emerged as a January target for Inter Milan and Juventus.

According to Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, the Serie A giants are willing to pay between €12m and €13m for the Arsenal and Spurs striker target.

The Spain under-21 international has struggled for first-team action under Carlo Ancelotti, and has been heavily linked with a move away from the Bernabeu this month.

Spurs and Arsenal were thought to be leading the race, but the report claims Juve and Inter are also keen after they were alerted to his availability.

He's out of contract at Real Madrid at the end of next season, so the Spanish giants may look to cash in before the summer to maximise his potential transfer fee.

But Madrid will also reportedly insist on a buy-back clause in any deal. Former-Barca star Bojan had a similar agreement when he left the Nou Camp while Arsenal have first refusal on Cesc Fabregas.

Juventus have identified Morata as a possible replacement for Fabio Quagliarella - the Italy international is closing in on a move to Lazio.

Inter, with new owner Erick Thohir at the helm, are expected to be busy this month. Fredy Guarin and Andrea Ranocchia have been linked with exits, which could free up the cash for Inter to bid for Morata.

Spurs and Arsenal reportedly remain a factor in this story, with both clubs thought to be on the lookout for another striker before the close of the winter deadline.
