Arsenal will have to pursue alternate striker options, after target Alvaro Morata revealed it is his intention to remain at Real Madrid for the rest of the his life.

According to Italian source Sports Mediaset, the Spaniard sees his long-term future at the Bernabeu, and thus moved to refute rumours linking him with a move away.

The likes of Inter Milan and Juventus had joined Arsenal in registering an interest in the prodigal young forward, and at one point it was thought that he could be allowed to transfer clubs either on a loan or permanent deal.

However following Real Madrid’s 5-0 thumping of Real Betis this weekend Morata moved to quell the speculation over his future.

“I'm happy here," he said.

"I spoke with the club and with Ancelotti making it clear that I want to stay here. This team is my life and I will stay here as long as the club wants it. I'm at the greatest team in the world."

The news will undoubtedly be taken as a blow by Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, who had viewed Morata as an ideal solution to his current striking predicament. The Gunners’ manager is keen to provide support for Olivier Giroud and is expected to acquire a forward this month.
