Arsene Wenger has denied that his club are to make a January bid to take Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata on loan and when questioned about the subject he simply said,
“There is no truth in that.”
The press have had Spurs and Arsenal alternating in pole position for the 21 year old and this denial has predictably sparked another host of ‘Morata to White Hart Lane’ rumours.
The striker is perceived to be down the pecking order at Real but he has made 12 appearances already this season. Ok so that includes games where Morata featured as a sub but that stat might just suggest he is more value to the La Liga side than some stories suggest.
