​Arsenal have been given the green light to go back in for Juventus striker Alvaro Morata this transfer window, according to reports. 

The former Real Madrid man has been a long time target of Arsene Wenger, but according to the ​Telegraph, circumstances have fallen into the Gunners' favour which will enable them to sign the Spain international to boost their title bid.

According to reports in Italy, Morata is fast becoming disillusioned with life in Turin after the 23-year-old has fallen behind Paulo Dybala in the pecking order, despite Morata being a key member of the squad that reached the Champions League final last year.

News regarding the Madrid clubs - Athletico and Real - and their transfer bans have also been taken into account at the Emirates, as Real have a buy-back clause in Morata's contract which they can activate at any point.


However, Real only have this window to activate it as they are banned from signing anyone for the next two windows for breaching FIFA regulations, and with the fee at £26m, it is unlikely Zinedine Zidane will make a move for the former Madrid man.

Back in 2014 Arsenal tried to sign Morata, then at Real Madrid, but the Spaniard turned down Arsene Wenger's advances for life in Turin with Juventus for £16m, which in turn led to Arsenal spending the same amount on Manchester United forward Danny Welbeck.

Since then, Morata has played and scored in a Champions League final, while Welbeck hasn't really done much for Arsenal and has spent a lot of time in the injury department, wih the England international yet to kick a ball for the Gunners this season.
