Arsenal, Man United face anxious wait ahead of meeting over £39.4m striker – report

Juventus and Real Madrid are to meet over the future of Arsenal target Alvaro Morata, according to Tuttosport

Juventus and Real Madrid are set to meet to decide the future of Arsenal and Manchester United target Alvaro Morata, according to Tuttosport.

The Spanish centre-forward is emerging as one of the most-coveted strikers in Europe amid growing interest from the Premier League.

Arsenal and Manchester United have been linked with a £39.4m move for the Juventus striker, while Chelsea are also thought to have an interest.

But his former employers, Real Madrid, have the option to buy back the striker for £23.4m should Los Blancos decide to activate a clause in his contract.

According to Tuttosport, Juventus directors Beppe Morotta and Fabio Paratici are set to meet the Real Madrid hierarchy with a view to keeping the striker in Turin.

Morata scored seven goals in 34 Serie A appearances in Juventus’s title-winning campaign, although he has failed to tie down a regular starting spot.
