Juventus striker Alvaro Morata could be a huge success at Arsenal if the Gunners can sign him in the summer.
The Spaniard, who has also been linked with a return to former club Real Madrid, is reportedly the subject of interest from Arsene Wenger as the Frenchman looks to bolster his frontline over the summer.
And given Morata's rapid rise up the footballing ladder, Arsenal should do all they can to land the forward, who could help them in their quest to end the wait for another Premier League title.

However, the common consensus seems to be that Madrid will activate a clause inserted into his contract, meaning they can bring him back to the Spanish capital for a paltry £23 million if they so desire.
Though he helped Juventus win the Serie A title and reach the Champions League final last season, the arrivals of Paulo Dybala and Mario Mandzukic have decreased his chances of making Massimiliano Allegri’s starting line-up on a regular basis.
The 23-year-old has done little to dispel rumours that he could be set for a move to the Emirates Stadium, and Arsenal could make a move in order to ease the goalscoring burden currently on the shoulders of Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck.
Though Morata’s teammate Dybala is arguably the more gifted striker, the Spanish international remains one of the hottest prospects in world football and is too good to be warming the bench at either the Santiago Bernabeu or indeed the Juventus Stadium.
The Madrid academy graduate scored 15 goals from 46 appearances last year and has ten goals for the current campaign having played six games less.
His composure in front of goal and positional awareness has drawn comparisons with legendary striker Raul, and he is expected to rival Chelsea forward Diego Costa when it comes to making Vincente Del Bosque’s squad for the European Championships in the summer.
Could he help them win the league?
Arsenal have been linked with just about every striker in world football – particularly Paris Saint-Germain duo Edinson Cavani and Zlatan Ibrahimovic – but Morata could perhaps be the striker that helps them land the trophy they crave the most.
Giroud and Welbeck have blown hot and cold so far this season, meaning Wenger may look for another striker to help propel the club towards a league title.
The reported £40million asking price is a huge transfer fee but Morata's talents could make him a big hit in the capital and amongst the Arsenal supporters. And if he could catapult them towards an elusive Premier League trophy, then it would be money well spent.
