Premier League heavyweights Arsenal have been linked with a want-away Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, who is believed to be looking for a way out of the Santiago Bernabeu side.

The Spanish striker was tipped for a Premier League move but still ended up being sold back to his parent club Real Madrid, who had a buy-back clause in their agreement with Juventus.

Arsenal have been struggling for goals ahead of this weekend’s Premier League clash with Manchester United which may lead manager Arsene Wenger to make a change in attack.

After shining as a centre-forward earlier in the campaign, Sanchez was inexplicably moved back to the left-wing in 2017, to the club’s detriment.
