The Gunners have been frequently linked with the Spain under-21 striker, who is valued in the £12m bracket by the La Liga giants.

The North London outfit reportedly came close to landing Morata on loan in January and are keen to press ahead with a summer deal.

The 21-year-old is eager for more first team football after making just one league start all season.

With the likes of Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema ahead of him in the pecking order, Morata’s hopes of more playing time next term seem slim.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are in need of a new striker.

Nicklas Bendtner is almost certain to leave the club after falling out of favour, while Yaya Sanogo is still yet to score a goal this term.

Even senior striker Olivier Giroud has been linked with a surprise Emirates Stadium exit.
