Arsenal have reportedly agreed a loan deal with Real Madrid for young striker Alvaro Morata.

The 21-year old, who has been scoring prolifically for Spain's U21 team, was also a target for Tottenham but reports emanating in Spain suggest that he is set for a six-month spell in the red half of north London which will commence in January.

Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti is keen for the highly-rated Morata to gain some regular first team football next year and with Arsene Wenger in need of some attacking reinforcements to deepen his squad, it appears as though it could be a favourable agreement for all parties involved.
