Alvaro Morata

Alvaro Morata would improve Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City, says Glenn Hoddle.

Tottenham Hotspur legend Glenn Hoddle has written in The Daily Mail that Alvaro Morata would improve Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City.

The former Spurs midfielder seems to rate the Juventus striker highly and was impressed with his goal against City in the Champions League last week.

The 22-year-old scored the winner for Juventus in the 81st minute of the Group D encounter at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Hoddle was impressed with Morata’s performance and believes that he is good enough to play for the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea.

“What a superb strike by Juventus' Alvaro Morata against Manchester City on Tuesday," the Tottenham legend wrote in The Daily Mail. "I know he is already at a major club, that reached the Champions League final last season, but I was still surprised that none of the Premier League's top four — all of whom could do with a striker — made a serious attempt to sign him.

“His goals knocked out his former club, Real Madrid, in last season's semi-final and got Juventus back into the Champions League final before Barcelona won 3-1.

“Given there appears to be such a deficit of world-class strikers, here is one who would improve Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea... and even Manchester City.”

Big talent

Morata is indeed a massive talent and is one of the best young strikers in Europe.

The Spain international has been a success at Juventus since joining the Turin outfit from Madrid in the summer of 2014.

Although the youngster scored only eight goals and created 20 chances in 29 Serie A appearances last season, he found the target four times and created eight chances in 11 Championship matches.

Morata is not the finished article yet, but he is a hugely talented young player who could potentially become world class in the future.
