Arsenal are readying a move to capture two Real Madrid talents as Arsene Wenger seeks to take advantage of Juventus’s decision to put on hold their advances for young striker Alvaro Morata, whilst also continuing to pursue midfielder Sami Khedira.

CaughtOffside understands that the north London side have already agreed a fee with Real Madrid for 27 year old German midfielder Sami Khedira and are in discussions with the German international with regards to his personal terms and is now ready to offer a combined bid that would include Morata.

The 21 year old Spanish striker had apparently been close to securing a move to join Juventus but the Serie A side have put the move on hold following the departure of boss Antonio Conte, a situation Wenger is keen to exploit.

Morata has struggled to retain a foothold in the Real Madrid first team but is considered one of the hottest prospects in Spanish football. Though the youngster started just three La Liga fixtures in 2013/14 he still netted eight goals and is a player Wenger rates highly.

Arsenal are keen to strengthen their attacking options and though Alexis Sanchez has been brought in from Barcelona Wenger still feels he needs further options, with the Chilean being seen as a player who will chiefly be used in a wide role.

Having already met Real Madrid’s £23m valuation for Khedira Arsenal are ready to put in a total bid of £32m for the duo, money that Carlo Ancelotti may be keen to use to re-invest in his squad with the La Liga side said to be keen on Colombian star James Rodriguez.

If Wenger is successful in his pursuit of Morata then he will opt to end his interest in QPR forward Loic Remy and is likely to loan out French youngster Yaya Sanogo for some much needed top level experience.
