Del Piero coy on Premier League move amid Arsenal link

Arsenal and QPR are the latest teams to be linked with Alessandro Del Piero, according to Talksport.

The  2006 world cup winner is expected to leave Juventus after 19 years and has since been linked with a move to the Premier League.

The player’s brother and agent Stefano would prefer his brother to play abroad rather than stay in Italy and as a result, a number of Premier League clubs have been linked with the Italian international.

“There is no direct contact with any English clubs, but our position is to listen to anyone who might be interested in him and then decide what is best.

“I think it would be very difficult to see him playing in Italy and wearing a shirt other than that of Juventus.”

It has been said that Arsenal are interested in the Italian veteran and will look to gain his services next season, however, they will face tough competition form the likes of Paris Saint Germain.

Del Piero admits he’s in no rush to move but is eager to start a new challenge. His brother said “There are no restrictions from our part. It all depends on what type of project a club has and what is exactly behind the proposal and the kind of football which would attract Alex, but the main interest is the project.”

Del Piero has scored 287 goals in 694 games for Juventus in his illustrious career.
