Tottenham have revived their interest in Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata with the Spanish giants willing to let him go, according to the Daily Mail.
The north London club are in the market for a striker and Morata's availability will give them a much needed boost ahead of the January transfer window. Tottenham had been following the player for quite some time and were also linked with a swap deal with Gareth bale when the Welshman transferred to the Spanish giants last summer.
Carlo Ancelotti was quite vocal about his desire to keep the player at the Santiago Bernabeu earlier this month but Jese's form has forced him to have a rethink and has reportedly decided that he can make do without the striker for the rest of the season.
"I say, some clubs are interested but the subject is closed. Morata remains with us because we need a footballer like him at Real Madrid this season. Although he has not played many matches this season I have confidence in his work for the team," Ancelotti had said.
Arsenal were also interested in a loan move and the recent developments are likely to rekindle Arsene Wenger's interest with the Gunners in the market for a striker to complement Olivier Giroud.
The Mirror reports that the striker is back on Wenger's radar and the Frenchman may make his interest known to the Spanish club from where they have already acquired Mesut Ozil last summer.
A loan move will allow Wenger to tackle his crisis up front and yet give him the opportunity to invest heavily next summer in a world class player.
The Gunners failed in their attempt to sign Luis Suarez and are desperately looking for a capable striker to enhance their firepower. However, they may have to wait till the summer to attract the big boys and Wenger is willing to look for an alternative to tide over the next six months rather than splash cash on mediocrity.
