Arsenal boss Wenger contacts Zidane about getting Morata discount

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger isn't giving up on signing Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.

The Mirror says Wenger has spoken directly with Zinedine Zidane in a desperate attempt to broker a deal for Real Madrid starlet Morata.

Arsenal have been unable to agree a deal after Real Madrid demanded a buy-back clause after three years - or £25million for a straight cash deal.

That has also put off Juventus who are also keen and have offered £12m for the Spanish under-21 striker.

Arsenal boss Wenger is hoping to Real Madrid legend Zidane will help get the deal across the line.
