Is Morata’s recent form enough to convince Juventus to stick with him?

Alvaro Morata has scored three goals in his last four league matches but is that enough to convince Juventus to give up on their search for a new striker?

The Bianconeri are reportedly looking for a new forward for next month’s transfer window, being linked to players like Manchester United’s Edison Cavani, but the 29-year-old Spaniard’s recent performances may be enough to secure his place in Massimiliano Allegri’s squad.

Morata scored in the Bianconeri’s 2-0 win over Bologna yesterday and also found the back of the net against Venezia and Salernitana in recent weeks, but these goals may not be enough to secure his position in Allegri’s team.

Prior to his goal against Salernitana on November 30th, Morata hadn’t found the back of the net in his previous nine league outings, with his other Serie A goals coming against Napoli and Milan back in September.

The Spanish forward has never been known for his clinical finishing and Juventus are looking for a consistent goal-scorer to help solve their attacking issues this campaign, but this search may have fired up Morata enough to convince the Bianconeri to give up on their efforts.

Last season, Morata scored 11 goals in 32 Serie A appearances, a disappointing haul for the Old Lady. Even considering his recent goals, then, Juventus may still believe that another striker is needed.

  1. The writer of this “article” changes his view of Juve’s decision on Morata FOUR times!

    – “but the 29-year-old Spaniard’s recent performances MAY BE ENOUGH to secure his place in Massimiliano Allegri’s squad”

    – ”but these goals may NOT BE ENOUGH to secure his position in Allegri’s team.”

    – “but this search may have fired up Morata ENOUGH TO CONVINCE the Bianconeri to give up on their efforts( to find new striker).”

    – “Even considering his recent goals, then, Juventus may still believe that ANOTHER STRIKER IS NEEDED.”

    Brilliant.

  2. Last season? You had a premadona cr7 on the team and everyone brainwashed into thinking its more important that cr7 scores in every game instead of Juve winning every game. I’m sorry but what form r u talking about? What’s the latest washed up striker of the month that you think is suppose to come in and start banging goals in? He’s doing his job, he would be doing an even better if the whole team played better. “Whole team”, not the latest 1 trick pony striker.

  3. For me, the first position to fix is MF. Central MF. Rabiot, Arthur just dont have what it takes.
    But a striker is also a good idea. Juve are the lowest scoring team in the top! Unheard of. Morata is fine as a sub or injury back up, but not a first choice
