Celebrations at Emirates as Spanish Striker is Close to Joining Arsenal

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is reportedly considering entering a transfer fight this summer in order to bolster his striking options following Alexandre Lacazette's contract expiration in June.

The Spanish manager has been reliant on Eddie Nketiah and the Frenchman up front, which has demonstrated the necessity for a fresh dangerous attacker after missing out on UEFA Champions League qualification.

Arsenal have been connected with a number of significant players, including Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling, but Tottenham Hotspurs have entered the battle to steal the deal.

The Gunners are closing in on acquiring Alvaro Morata from Juventus, according to Mirror Football, with the ex-Chelsea star reportedly open to a return to the Premier League.

Morata hasn't been a regular starter in Serie A and is expected to leave in pursuit of more playing time, with Arteta willing to sign him as a better and less expensive target to lead his attacking department.

Apart from Morata, the North London club is also keeping an eye on Napoli attacker Victor Osimhen's situation.
