Alvaro Morata comments on his future amid Arsenal, Man United transfer talk

Alvaro Morata says that he is considering a transfer to the Premier League this summer

Alvaro Morata has admitted that he is tempted by a transfer to the Premier League this summer, with both Arsenal and Manchester United both said to be tracking the Juventus striker.

The Spain international has been heavily linked with a move to England in recent days amid claims that he is set to quit Juventus this summer.

Arsenal and Manchester United have both been touted as possible destinations for the forward, while Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham are also said to be interested.

Now, the player himself has confirmed that he has received concrete offers from Premier League clubs as he considers his future.

Morata is quoted as saying by TEAMtalk: “There are some offers from England that are tempting, not only by the contract.

“I think for my characteristics the Premier League would also be a great destination.

“I’m not saying that you want me to go to Juventus, a team that I can only speak well of. I say going to the Premier League 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 am 23 years old and what I want is to progress, play, and learn from the best.”

Real Madrid are thought to be considering activating their buy-back clause for Morata before selling him on at a profit this summer.
