Arsenal defeated Sunderland last night to keep their hopes of a top four finish alive. Liverpool are in pole position to earn Champions League qualification and a win against Middlesbrough on the final day of the season will do the job for them.
The Gunners have had an average season under Arsene Wenger and they must strengthen the squad in the summer transfer window by signing top quality players.
Recently, Real Madrid star Alvaro Morata (via Express) has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates. However, he is not the only Los Blancos star wanted by Arsenal.
According to Diario Gol, the Spanish giants are ready to offload veteran Luka Modric in the summer transfer window and the likes of Arsenal, Bayern, PSG and Chelsea want him this summer.
The Spanish source have claimed that the above mentioned teams are ready to spend big to hire the services of the 31-year-old Croatian international. Modric has been a key member of the Real Madrid squad since joining them from Tottenham.
Luka can effectively play in the defensive and creative midfield role. This season, in 38 appearances (all competitions), he has scored 1 goal and provided 4 assists. His current contract with Real Madrid will expire in 2020 and he is netting around (Star) £245,000-a-week ($316,000-a-week).
Arsenal do have more than a few defensive and creative midfielders in their team and they have badly missed Santi Cazorla in the center of the park. Someone like Modric would definitely improve the midfield department, however, being a former Spurs star, it will not be shocking if he opts to reject the Gunners.
