Arsenal remain in contact with Real Madrid for Alvaro Morata. Those close to the Gunners say their move for Morata is a sure sign manager Arsene Wenger expects to be around next season.

The Mail on Sunday says Morata is likely to join Arsenal at the end of the season if the club can agree a fee with Real Madrid.

Arsenal know they have to strengthen in attack, with Olivier Giroud their only centre forward.
