Arsenal will find it even harder to sign Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata after Italian giants Juventus and Inter Milan have said they are also interested in the young Spaniard.
In recent weeks the gunners have been heavily linked with the 21-year-old forward despite the fact manager Arsene Wenger trying to play down talk of the signing at a press conference last week.
According to the Daily Express reports coming out of Italy are saying that both Inter and Juventus are willing to pay £11 million for the Los Blancos front man.
Morata has also hinted at a move saying: “Real Madrid have been my team since I was little and will be all my life, but I think the important thing is to have a relevant role in the team.
“If I ever feel that’s not the case, I would look at other options. In football, it’s very difficult to stay at the top and even more so in a team like Real.”
Arsenal was only looking to sign Morata on loan but with both Italian teams looking at a permanent move one of them could very well take Arsenal out of the game.
