Juventus forward Alvaro Morata has confirmed that he does have offers from English clubs and believes his style will suit the Premier League. The Spanish striker is currently on international duty with Spain preparing for the upcoming European Championship finals beginning on 10 June in France.
The Spain international is keen on resolving his future before the start of Euro 2016 and despite being keen to move back to former club Real Madrid, he is aware that he may not get regular football with the 11-time Champions League winners. The Los Blancos inserted a buyback clause in his contract when they sold him to the Serie A side in 2013 and according to Spanish daily Marca, they are planning to exercise it before selling him to the highest bidder to make a profit in the summer.
Arsenal and Manchester United have been credited with interest in signing the Juventus star, with the Sun reporting that the Gunners have made a starting bid of around £28m ($41m) to bring him to Emirates Stadium.Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has also admitted that he could leave after revealing that the club were looking at replacements. Arsene Wenger has made it clear that he will sign a striker this summer owing to Olivier Giroud‘s inconsistent form and Danny Welbeck‘s long-term injury and Morata could be a viable option to augment the strike force.
“Hopefully everything will be resolved June 13, the first game of Spain . Because it is uncomfortable to be here thinking about helping your country with phone in hand. Let’s see what happens at the end and where to play,” Morata told AS.
“There are some offers from England that are tempting , not only by the contract. I think for my characteristics the Premier also be a great destination,” he added.
“I’m not saying by this that I want to leave Juventus, a team that I can only speak well of. I say going to the Premier would not be a step backwards. With what I have learned in Italy, if I have the chance to learn something more in England I think it would make me a more complete, better player. I’m 23 and I want is progress, play, learn from the best,” the Spain international explained.
