Arsenal are ready to meet Atletico Madrid's price tag for striker Alvaro Morata, a report from Fichajes claims.

The Gunners are likely to pursue a couple of strikers this summer, and Morata's name has been constantly mentioned.

The Spaniard is presently in the second year of his loan spell at Juventus, but the Bianconeri may not buy him.

The Serie A outfit agreed a buy-clause worth €30m with Atletico in 2020, but they are now willing to offer just €15m.

Atletico are reluctant to accept the proposal, and this could pave the way for the Gunners to sign Morata this summer.

It is still unclear whether Morata would consider a move to the Gunners even if they agree on a suitable transfer fee.

The 29-year-old had a bad experience at Chelsea previously. He only netted 16 goals from 47 Premier League games.

It has been reported that Morata could be hesitant to return to the English top-flight amid his dismal spell in west London.
