The 29-year-old has enjoyed the most recent two years on loan with Juventus, however the player has been considered as too costly by the Serie A monsters.
Arsenal supposedly stayed determined to take Chelsea former striker Alvaro Morata back to England with Juventus reluctant to sign the Atletico Madrid striker for another deal permanent this time.
It is alleged that Juventus have proactively forked out £17m on Morata’s two-year spell in Turin.
What’s more, Atletico are requesting £30m from the Italian outfit to transform the Spaniard’s impermanent stay into an extremely durable switch.
Juventus are supposed to be reluctant to match their requests, and are simply ready to give up a further £17m.
All signs point towards a re-visitation of the Wanda Metropolitano for Morata, who actually has two years left on his agreement in Madrid.
Yet, it is not yet clear whether the player is in the plans of Argentine gaffer Diego Simeone or making his comeback to his former club Chelsea since Thomas Tuchel will not hesitate to have him and model him to the giant he ought to be.
Accordingly, the Spanish media source guarantees that both Arsenal and Barcelona are the two clubs currently watching what is happening.
Barca were near getting his administrations in January, just for Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri to impede the exchange.
There have even been bits of gossip that the Blaugrana and Atletico could seek to trade Antoine Griezmann for Morata.
