Morata this summer has been the ‘Yann M’Villa’ of past summers. With constant links and rumours surrounding the player, no one is really sure what will happen with the young Spaniard. He returned to Real Madrid this summer after moving to Juventus in 2015, but media outlets have predicted that this was to strategically sell him on in the future for an extended amount. He, once again, looks set to be one of the next big strikers, but is any club willing to pay over €50million for him this summer? With only 15 goals in the past 2 seasons in Italy, clubs may be turned away. However, with Chelsea focusing on Marseille’s Michy Batshuayi, it seemingly looks like Morata’s suitors may belong in North London. If he does sign for Arsenal, fans will hope the 23-year-old can flourish and realise his potential. Although the benefits of his are clear (strength, youth, pace, height), he lacks a killer instinct that Arsenal are desperate to find in attack. With a lack of world class strikers out there, it may be worth taking a risk on Morata.
