Newcastle United have reportedly shown an interest in signing Atletico Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.

The Spain international has spent the last two seasons on loan at Juventus, but the Turin side opted against making his loan deal permanent.

With Juventus not prepared to pay the purchase clause of €35m (£29.3m), the forward has returned to his parent club Atletico Madrid.

Morata has previously claimed that "several teams" are looking to sign him over the transfer window, with Arsenal reportedly one of the clubs interested in the Spaniard's signature.

According to Calciomercato, Newcastle are also looking at the possibility of signing Morata as they bid to strengthen their striking options ahead of the 2022-23 season.

The report claims that the Magpies could face competition from Barcelona and Bayern Munich, while a return to Juventus is not out of the question if the Italian giants can negotiate a lower asking price.

Atletico Madrid are looking to receive a fee in the region of €30m (£25.6m) for the 29-year-old.

Morata is currently on international duty with Spain, and he has appeared in both UEFA Nations League contests, scoring in the opening game against Portugal.
