Manchester City have reportedly joined Arsenal in the race to sign Juventus striker Alvaro Morata, as incoming City boss is keen on the Spanish international.
Guardiola recently watched Morata in the Champions League when Juventus faced Bayern Munich and Guardiola was said to be impressed by the strikers performance.
According to the Sun via the Metro, Guardiola has now earmarked Morata as a player that will improve his City side when he moves to England at the end of the season.
Wenger is reportedly interested in signing the striker and has already made contact with the player’s representatives. The striker has been linked with a move to the Emirates since his time at the Bernabeu and with the player’s future in Turin in doubt, Wenger has reportedly made the striker his top target.
Real Madrid are interested in activating the £27m recall clause in the player’s contract and will immediately look to sell the player for a higher fee. However, they may also decide to keep the striker should he impress in this summer’s Euro 2016 championships.
But with the number of Premier League clubs reportedly interested in the striker now, Madrid could see this as an opportunity to get exorbitant cash from the eventual buyer.
Liverpool and Chelsea have also be credited with an interest in the striker and should all these clubs pursue an interest in the striker, a bidding war for the player is set to happen this summer.
