Santi Cazorla previously referred to Alvaro Morata as the man who would shape the future of Spain’s national team. Arsenal are getting closer to completing the transfer of Morata to Arsenal from Atletico Madrid. Morata has spent the previous two years playing for Juventus while on loan from Spanish club Real Madrid.
Morata, at 29 years old, was loaned back to Juventus in the summer of 2020 for a period of two years. This happened following his first engagement with the Old Lady, which lasted from 2014 to 2016. He had an outstanding season in 2020-21, contributing to 32 goals in only 44 games played.
But he had a rough season the year before. He played for Max Allegri’s team in a total of 48 games but only scored 12 goals. Now, he is scheduled to go back to his home club Atleti, where he still has a year remaining on the contract that he has signed. Arsenal are aiming to take advantage.
According to SPORT, Juventus are not prepared to pay the £25 million permanent clause, but Arsenal are, and the two clubs are reportedly extremely ‘near’ to reaching an agreement. A player who Cazorla, a former hero for Arsenal, has indicated has the potential to be the future of Spain’s national team.
“What is ahead for Spain. After Morata scored his first goal for Spain in a 1-0 victory over Ukraine in 2015, Cazorla was cited by Eurosport as stating, “He’s doing well at Juve and we’ve all already congratulated him for his goal.” Cazorla’s comments were made after Morata scored his first goal for Spain.
Back in 2015, CAZORLA said that Arsenal Target Morata was the Future of Spain.
Arsenal need a striker. It is thought that Eddie Nketiah will sign a new contract, although it is probable that Alexandre Lacazette will leave the team. Therefore, they need a new striker, and Morata would be a fantastic addition to the team even if he has received some criticism as of late.
During the first campaign of his second stint with Juventus, he established himself as an outstanding performer. If a team is able to play to his abilities and he is the primary guy on the squad, then he will flourish. Morata has the opportunity to make an immediate impact for Arsenal while playing under Mikel Arteta.
