According to a quote from Italian writer Fabrizio Romano, Alvaro Morata has indicated that he would be open to a transfer to Arsenal if the club were interested in acquiring his services in the future. According to several reports, the Gunners are reportedly on the verge of finalising a transfer of 25 million pounds.
This information comes from the Spanish publication SPORT. They report that 29-year-old Morata is on the verge of leaving Juventus following a loan stint with the Old Lady that lasted for two years. This was Morata’s second time living in the Turin area. Juve is not interested in signing him to a long-term deal.
That is despite the fact that a stipulation in the loan for $25 million had been previously agreed upon. According to SPORT, Arsenal are ready to pay the transfer cost, and negotiations are reportedly getting “near.” However, more recent sources suggest that Morata himself is not persuaded by Arsenal’s offer to sign with them.
Romano has now claimed that Morata has not closed the door on a transfer to Arsenal or any other team, saying that he is willing to consider all options. According to what he heard from the Spanish striker, a number of different teams are interested in signing him this summer.

MORATA OPENS DOOR TO ARSENAL MOVE: IS HE THE RIGHT SIGNING FOR GUNNERS?
Morata is an excellent striker. However, would he be an improvement over Eddie Nketiah, who Arsenal currently possesses? While Morata will be 30 years old in October, Nketiah is only starting started in his career and is also a graduate of the Hale End school.
The Spaniard had a difficult time scoring goals during his last stint in the Premier League, scoring only 24 times in 72 games for Chelsea. If given the opportunity, Nketiah has the potential to become an improved striker for Arsenal while playing on English soil.
But acquiring Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City should be their first aim as they attempt to build their team. Even Gabriel, who plays defence for Arsenal, feels that he would be a fantastic addition to the team if they signed him. Morata is a choice, but Jesus ought to be the one taken most seriously.
