Alvaro Morata: Juventus striker confirms Premier League interest

Alvaro Morata has confirmed he has offers to move to England this summer – and the Juventus striker says the chance to play in the Premier League is “tempting”.

Morata has been linked with Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham at various points in recent months, though Real Madrid are tipped to activate their buyback clause for the Spain international, before selling him on again at a profit.

“There are some offers from England that are tempting, not only by the contract,” the 23-year-old told Spanish publication AS. “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.”

Morata scored 12 goals and registered nine assists in 47 appearances for Juve last season.
