Arsene Wenger has denied that Arsenal have completed a loan deal for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata. There were reports from sections of the Spanish media which suggested the Gunners had already come to an agreement with the Spanish side for a January move, but at his press conference today Wenger denied it flat out.
“There is no truth in that,” he said. “That is all I can say. I have not been in touch with them.”
Morata has made 12 appearances this season for Madrid, scoring two goals, and when you consider the depth they have in the forward department, that’s hardly unused.
Arsenal’s need for a striker is certainly going to drive many a transfer story over the next few weeks and into the month of January when the window opens again, but it seems as if this is a name we can cross off our lists.
The boss also denied a move for Brazilian Alexandre Pato. The Brazilian press said Corinthians had turned down an €8m Arsenal bid.
