Arsenal ‘Given Encouragement’ Over Morata Move + Make Tello Enquiry

By on January 29, 2014

Arsenal have been given fresh encouragement from Real Madrid that Alvaro Morata could be available on loan this month while we’ve also made initial enquiries over Cristian Tello at Barcelona, according to reports today.

Morata was strongly linked with a move to the Emirates during the first couple of weeks of the winter window, with various reports suggesting he was set for a 6 month loan switch.

Carlo Ancelotti then came out and insisted the 21-year-old was going nowhere unless he made it clear he wanted to leave, and the rumours have subsided in recent days.

However, the Mirror are reporting today that Arsene Wenger is ready to make a late move for a striker and has apparently been given new encouragement from Madrid that Morata could be available on loan.

The paper suggests that Morata’s representatives have asked about the striker being allowed to leave on a short-term basis which could now open the door to Arsenal.

I’d love to see Morata come in this month as he’d be an excellent option to have during the second half of the season, so let’s hope we can get something done before Friday’s deadline.

The Mirror also claim that we’ve made enquiries to Barcelona about either a loan or permanent move for Cristian Tello, but the 22-year-old is believed to be keen on staying at the Nou Camp and assessing his future in the summer.

Arsene was reported to have been in the stands at a Barcelona game last week with Tello believed to have been one of the players he was keeping an eye on. However, it seems any potential move for the player will have to wait until the summer.

    In Arsenal yestarday match against Southampton, Giroud lack that killer instinct. Though he scored a goal bt Arsenal can’t rely on him when it matter most. We need someone like Diego Costa. Wenger sign now or another trophyless season await you.

    Players looked very tired in the first half and to having signed no one until this day shows disrespect to the fans and players who can’t say they are tired
