Morata close to completing £25m transfer to Arsenal
According to Sport, Arsenal are "extremely close" to signing Alvaro Morata this summer.
In January, the Gunners were unable to sign Morata as a replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Mikel Arteta, who is looking to bolster his team ahead of the new season, has opted to pursue the Spanish striker once more.
Alexandre Lacazette is expected to leave at the conclusion of his contract, and despite Eddie Nketiah appearing to have agreed to a new contract, reinforcements are still required.
Arsenal would pay roughly £25 million for Morata's deal.
If that's the case, it'll be Morata's first time back in the Premier League since his terrible time with Chelsea.
The 29-year-old was signed from Real Madrid in 2017, scoring 24 goals before departing midway through the next campaign in a switch to Atletico Madrid.
