Chelsea have beaten Arsenal in signing one of Arsene Wenger’s long term target Alvaro Morata.

The Spanish striker was heavily linked with a move to the Emirate Stadium this summer but he opted to sign a five year deal with the current Premier League title.

An official statement from the player states: “I am so happy to be here. It’s an incredible emotion to be part of this big club,” said Morata, 24. “I am looking to work hard, score as many goals as I can and to win as many trophies as possible.”

Blues technical director Michael Emenalo told the club website: “We are delighted to complete Alvaro’s signing and welcome him to the club. We believe he can make a great impact for Chelsea and look forward to seeing him in action.

“Alvaro has proven class at the highest level and his quality will be a huge asset to Antonio and the squad.”

However, Arsenal have already secured the signing of Alexandre Lacazette this summer for a club record fee of £52.6m.
