Alvaro Morata has sparked an auction between Arsenal and Chelsea after admitting he believes the Premier League would be a “great destination.”

Italian giants Juventus are ready to sell the 23-year-old this summer and his former club Real Madrid have a buy-back option on the Spanish striker.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has made Morata his No1 striker target this summer and is ready to pay £30m but also faces competition from Chelsea who have been sounded out on his availability.

Real Madrid could also take him back for £23m rather than sell him on for a profit while Paris Saint Germain are also keen on Morata.

But it seems as if Morata – who Arsenal have tried to sign twice before – would rather move to England this summer and wants his future resolved before the start of the Euros.

Morata said: “Hopefully everything will be resolved before then, because it is uncomfortable to be helping your country with phone in hand.

“My wish is to succeed in Madrid, but Madrid have great players and what I want is to play and feel important.

“There are some offers from England that are tempting, not only because of the contract. I think my characteristics mean the Premier League would be a great destination.
