Alvaro Morata is widely regarded as one of Europe's most promising young players. The 22-year-old Spanish hitman was linked with a host of top clubs in the 2014 summer transfer window.

He was tipped to join Arsenal, but the North London side turned down the chance to buy him as they were unwilling to pay his £17 million transfer fee. Italian champions, Juventus, purchased the former Spain U21 star, but may be looking to cash in on Morata while they still can. 

Interest

Metro reports that both Arsenal and Liverpool are set to renew their interest in the young forward, who won the 2013, U21 European Championships, as well as the Golden Boot with Spain. Morata scored more goals than Real Madrid first team playmaker Isco, new Napoli star Manolo Gabbiadini and Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago during the championships.

I have to say, I find it unlikely that a young man, who moved to new country less than a year ago, will want to, yet again, relocate. However, you can never say never in football. As unlikely as a summer transfer is, if a top cub can offer Morata regular first team football, he may be tempted to swap his current 'Super-sub' status for something a little more permanent.

Battle

Getting into the Juventus squad is not easy; having to battle with the red hot Carlos Tevez and clinical Fernando Llorente would be a difficult task for any striker. When you look at the two English clubs heavily linked with the youngster, Morata wold almost fit straight into both the Arsenal and Liverpool starting XI's.

Ok, so Morata may not be a household name, but in a couple of years, he will be. His technical ability and strong presence is that of a much more experienced footballer. Morata seems like more of a perfect fit for Arsenal than Liverpool.

Quality

Although both English teams are not too dissimilar in terms of quality, Arsenals style of football would suit Morata more than Liverpool's. On top of that, Morata could learn a lot from Arsenal regular Olivier Giroud in terms of both hold up an link up play.

Although Morata wouldn't be considered a 'target man', if he could add that too his game, he could cause problems for and defence the Premier League has to offer.
