Arsenal, Tottenham and QPR have been put on red alert after Italian legend Alessandro Del Piero revealed he would love the chance to play in England, reports talkSPORT.

The 37-year-old ended his memorable 17-year association with Serie A giants Juventus by lifting the Scudetto in an unbeaten league season under Antonio Conte.

Del Piero will leave the Old Lady this summer, but is determined to prolong his playing career for another year at least, and would relish the opportunity to ply his trade in the Premier League.

"England is a place where the football is so good, but I have still not agreed anything with a club," he told Italian newspaper Corriere Dello Sport.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is a known admirer of the veteran forward, and could attempt to lure him to the Emirates Stadium as he looks to further strengthen his attacking options, alongside club captain Robin van Persie and Lukas Podolski - who has already put pen to paper on a summer switch to north London.

However, Arsenal will likely face competition from local rivals Tottenham Hotspur, with Harry Redknapp also believed to be monitoring Del Piero's situation.

Spurs currently face an agonising wait to determine whether they will be playing in the Champions League next season, and will hope their inclusion in Europe's top tier competition will help convince the Juventus star to choose White Hart Lane.
