Del Piero comments provide Arsenal & Spurs optimism

Published Add your comment

Alessandro Del Piero says he will not join another club in Italy after leaving Juventus, which has reportedly alerted both Arsenal and Tottenham to his availability.

The 37-year-old leaves Turin this summer after 20 years as a Juventus player, and having helped secure a first legitimate Serie A title for the Italian giants in nine years.

Del Piero departs on a free transfer and, despite being in the twilight of his career, will surely have no shortage of offers over the summer months.

The former Italy international has revealed that a move to another side in his native country is out of the question due to his loyalty to Juve and, according to talkSPORT, this has placed both Arsenal and Tottenham on alert.

Del Piero also stated that a move to a side in the Champions League is not a priority, which also provides optimism for Queens Park Rangers, and will make a decision based on what is best for his family.

"Over the next few days I'll go through all the possible alternatives when I'm on holiday in the sun," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Then I'll decide where to play next year, and I'm certain it will be abroad. I'm not excluding anything.

"I don't think I'll be playing in the Champions League or in a particular league, I'll choose the best solution for me and my family will follow me.

"I'd like to thank all of the Italian teams who have approached me with offers. But obviously I could never play in Italy for any other team."
