Alvaro Morata has thrown his Juventus future into doubt after admitting that he was unsure of remaining with the Italian champions following the end of the current campaign. The Serie A side celebrated their fifth consecutive Scudetto win on Monday (25 April) after Napoli lost to Roma and while the Old Lady beat Fiorentina 2-1.
Arsenal and Manchester City have been heavily linked with a move for the former Real Madrid forward, with Spanish publication AS suggesting that his final destination will be the Emirates Stadium next season. The 10-time Champions League winners inserted a buy-back clause when they sold him to Juventus in 2014, and are reportedly interested in activating the option, only to sell him for a profit to other interested clubs.
The 23-year-old Spain international has been impressive for the Italian club this season, and despite a low goal scoring tally, he has contributed with 11 assists, while playing a key role in helping them to their fifth consecutive title. Masimilliano Allegri is hoping to retain the forward next season, but Morata's admission regarding his future is likely to alert interested clubs.
"Do I like this [Juventus] shirt? For me, what I like is scoring goals," Morata said, as quoted by the Sun following their Scudetto triumph.
"I'm fighting for Juventus as they're my team. Will I stay? We will see," the Spain international forward added.
Arsene Wenger is guaranteed to bolster his forward line following his current strikers' failure to score on a consistent basis during their failed Premier League title campaign. Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott have had a disappointing campaign and could be offloaded ahead of next season. The duo have managed just four goals among them in their last 34 league appearances combined this season, which has been one of the main reasons for the north London club tailing off in the final months of the league campaign.
