Juventus Striker Admits His Style Of Play Is Suited To The English Football

Alvaro Morata, who is reportedly a summer target for Arsenal and Manchester United, has stated that the Premier League suits his style more than Serie A.

Alvaro Morata joined Juventus in 2014 from Real Madrid, but the La Liga giants installed a buy-back clause into the contract that would allow them to bring Morata back to the Spanish capital for a fee believed to be £24million.

Earlier this week, Spanish media claimed Real Madrid would use the buy-back option and then look to sell the Spanish striker for a huge profit.

Arsenal were among the English clubs interested in the 23-year-old when he first moved to Italy, while Liverpool and Manchester United are also thought to be keen on signing Morata.

His Serie A future remains in doubt, as he has struggled to get regular game time with both Paulo Dybala and Mario Mandzukic looking in good touch for Juventus in recent months. The speculations will only increase as he has admitted he would be open to a move to the Premier League as the style of play would suit him.

Speaking to Marca, he said: ‘I am happy in Italy but Germany and England are both countries where my style of football could be better suited.

‘I like the Premier League a lot because of the way football is played there. It’s more attractive for a striker because it is not as tactical as in Italy.

‘I am not used to having to run almost 14 km in a game – they are the numbers of a midfielder. But all this is serving me well for my future.’

Alvaro Morata has bagged 26 goals in 90 appearances for Juventus, with 10 goals coming this season.
