Alvaro Morata is edging closer to a move to Juventus, according to the Arsenal target’s agent.

The Gunners have been strongly linked with a swoop for the 21-year-old Spaniard in recent weeks after the north London club was touted as a destination for the striker in the January transfer window.

The Real Madrid youngster, who is also reportedly attracting interest from Inter Milan, scored eight goals in 23 appearances, although 20 of those were from the bench.

But it appears Arsenal and Inter are set to lose to Juve in the race to sign the striker after Morata’s agent indicated that the Spain Under-21 international is closing in on a move to Turin.

“Morata is closer to Juventus,” Lopez told AS.

Morata has scored 11 goals in 52 appearances for Madrid in all competitions.
