Alvaro Morata has rejected a chance to join Arsenal after he was linked with a move to North London.
According to journalist Fabiana Della Valle, Morata is willing to continue his career at Juventus but should the Serie A side fail to extend his stay, he will gladly return to parent club Atletico Madrid. Apart from Arsenal, the Spanish striker had been linked with a move to Newcastle United too but his desire isn't to move to the Premier League.
It has been reported that Juve are offering Atleti a package of €15 million-plus bonuses and inserting players like Adrien Rabiot, Denis Zakaria, and Moise Kean in a potential permanent deal but the Laliga club rebuffed the Bianconeri’s offer.
Álvaro Morata on his future as Juve won’t trigger the buy option clause from Atletico: “I have quiet a few options. It's not up to me. The good thing is that there are several teams…”. 👀🇪🇸 #Morata— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) June 2, 2022

The Diego Simeone side said that they were not open to negotiations on the fee of €35 million agreed upon between the two clubs initially and should they fail to strike a deal, the striker is set to return to Spain this summer.
Morata had an agreement with Barcelona in the last winter transfer window, but Allegri came in between with the manager said to be keen on retaining the player owing to their close relationship.
