Arsenal, Chelsea convinced Morata could yet force Real Madrid exit

Arsenal and Chelsea are keeping tabs on Alvaro Morata's situation at Real Madrid.

Don Balon says both Premier League clubs refuse to drop their long-term interest in the Spain international.

Just last week, Morata revealed Chelsea made a massive offer for him after Real Madrid had triggered the buy-back clause in his deal with Juventus last summer.

It's suggested Chelsea and Arsenal remain convinced Morata can be tempted away, particularly after Real coach Zinedine Zidane's claims that when fit, the BBC - Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo - would always be his first choice.

For the 2-2 draw at Champions League opponents Borussia Dortmund, Morata again started on the bench - which is encouraging Arsenal and Chelsea to maintain their interest.
