Real Madrid's transfer ban could see Arsenal sign Alvaro Morata

Arsenal could renew their attempts to sign Juventus striker Alvaro Morata this summer, aided by the fact that Real Madrid will currently be unable to compete with them.

The Sun, riding the transfer window wave better than Tony Hawk ever rode a skateboard, claim that the Gunners could make another stab at buying Morata, having failed to do so before he moved to Italy in 2014.

Arsenal return speculated

At the time, Arsenal instead fell back on Danny Welbeck, but with Arsene Wenger potentially aiming to turn his club into the Premier League’s dominant superpower, more star names might be on the agenda for this summer.

Indeed, The Sun speculate that the transfer ban handed down to Real Madrid earlier this week by FIFA will serve as a boost for Arsenal with regards to any Morata ambitions they may have.

No Real deal?

Los Blancos inserted a buy-back clause into the deal that saw the Spaniard leave Spain, putting them in pole position to win any transfer race should they need to in the future.

With the new suspension, however - admittedly open to appeal - Zinedine Zidane looks set to have to work with what he’s got until the summer of 2017.

Morata, meanwhile, has taken a backseat in Turin after the arrival of hot-shot Paulo Dybala and so might be inclined to seek an exit sooner rather than later.

Doubts to be cast

It’s all very up in the air at the moment and given the fact Morata signed a new contract in December, you’d be forgiven for casting your doubts.

Wenger, at the same time, is of the opinion that Real’s transfer ban won’t hold anyway. Make of that, what you will.
