Arsene Wenger has reignited his interest in Spanish youth star Alvaro Morata and the Gunners boss could launch a fresh attempt to sign the Real Madrid forward in the upcoming January transfer window. The Spanish striker has returned to the limelight by scoring a goal for Real against Levante last weekend when he replaced Mesut Ozil late in the match.
The 20 year-old joined Real's youth academy in 2008 and made his first appearance for the senior side two years later. The youngster has been a phenomenal performer for Real Madrid Castilla, scoring 34 times in 69 appearances. However, he has failed to earn a first team place among the club's top stars and has made just 5 appearances for Real, coming off the bench in all those instances.
Wenger had been keen on signing the young forward on loan last summer too as Robin van Persie edged closer to an exit from Arsenal. Real Madrid chose to keep hold of Morata but Mourinho is likely to consider the option to send him to England to gain some valuable first team action.
Real Madrid are unlikely to sell the rising star and Wenger could most likely sign the Spanish youth international on a loan deal in January, revealed the Mirror. The player would also prefer making the move since Real's first team is studded with a number of world class players and a good showing while on loan at the Emirates would help him grab Jose Mourinho's attention.
