Borussia Dortmund are ready to put a tempting offer in front of Real Madrid in their bid to sign Alvaro Morata, reports German newspaper Bild.

The Real Madrid striker has long been linked with an exit from the Bernabeu after struggling to establish himself under Carlo Ancelotti.

He had fell behind both Karim Benzema and Jese Rodriguez in the pecking order and was tipped to leave in the January transfer window.

Following a serious injury to Jese, Ancelotti will be thanking his lucky stars that he didn't let Morata leave two months ago when Arsenal reportedly came calling with a loan offer.

Despite moving up to second choice, Ancelotti is still preparing to offload Morata in the summer and Real Madrid are hopeful of conjuring up as much as £20m for his signature.

With both Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and his Manchester United counterpart David Moyes looking to sign new strikers this summer, there will be no shortage of suitors for Morata.

Both Arsenal and Manchester United have plenty of money to spend this summer, making either of the clubs favourite for his signature. However, Borussia Dortmund are ready to throw their hat into the ring.

Unfortunately for them, they are looking to replace Robert Lewandowski, who will leave for Bayern Munich when his contract expires. As a result, they are desperately scouting for replacements and see Morata as a good value option.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has garnered a reputation for nurturing young talent and many would back him to get the best out of the young Spanish striker.
