Tottenham’s ‘special’ relationship with Real Madrid could be tested again this January with reports that Andre Villas-Boas is looking to bring in Alvaro Morata in an attempt to solve the club’s goal scoring problems.
The Daily Mail began proceedings with claims that the La Liga side were prepared to let the centre forward out on loan for the rest of the campaign, but only if they were able to bring in Robert Lewandowski or Luis Suarez during the next window. Meanwhile, there was one isolated story suggesting that a permanent transfer of Morata had already been agreed between the two clubs.
Morata may be highly rated but in 23 league games so far for Real, he has found the net just four times. Meanwhile, clubs will be more excited by his record at international level where the 21 year old scored twelve times in eleven matches for the under 21s.
Once the transfer window is open, it will be interesting to see how Spurs react to their mixed start to the campaign and while the arrival of a new striker may seem likely, is Alvaro Morata really the answer?
