Perhaps unsurprisingly it’s striking talents that dominate the list of players Arsene Wenger has placed on this shopping-list, targets which vary in terms of their likelihood of seeing completion in either January of in the summer transfer window.
Arsenal are apparently in talks with Real Madrid youngster Alvaro Morata with this source stating that a permanent switch would cost the North London club around £9m with a loan deal perhaps suiting all concerned.
The 21 year old Spaniard is considered one of the hottest prospects in Europe but has fallen behind Jese Rodriguez as Carlo Ancelotti’s back-up to Karim Benzema.
Morata could offer Wenger some much needed short term relief to his striker crisis, which has seen Olivier Giroud rushed back from illness with Nicklas Bendtner and Theo Walcott both out injured.
