Arsenal have joined Chelsea in the race for Alvaro Morata's signature, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

Arsene Wenger revealed at the weekend that he was planning on making two more signings this summer and has identified the Juventus striker as a target after missing out on Jamie Vardy.

Chelsea are still monitoring the situation, with Real Madrid holding a cut-price buy-back clause on the Spain international and are expected to be open to selling him on for a profit during the summer transfer window.

Juventus are willing to sell Morata, who scored twice for Spain against Turkey are Euro 2016 on Friday, at a higher fee than the €32 million figure Real Madrid are able to trigger.
