Arsenal told to pay £38m for Juventus striker – report

Arsenal may have to pay up to £38m to sign Alvaro Morata this summer, according to Daily Mirror

Arsenal will need to cough up a £38m transfer fee if the Gunners want to sign Juventus striker Alvaro Morata, according to Daily Mirror.

The Spain international has been heavily linked with a move to the north London side since the Premier League season came to an end earlier this month.

Morata is thought to be attracting interest from his former employers and Champions League finalists Real Madrid, who have a £24m buyback clause.

According to Daily Mirror, Los Blancos want to re-sign Morata for £24m before selling the striker to Arsenal or Premier League rivals Chelsea and Manchester City at a significant profit.

Morata has won back-to-back Serie A titles since his move to Juventus from Real Madrid in 2014.

The 23-year-old also finished as a Champions League runner-up after Barcelona’s 3-1 victory over Juventus in the final in 2015.
