Arsenal and Chelsea join race for wantaway Italian ace

Torino front-man Alessio Cerci has put Premier League sides on red alert by claiming that he is ready to play in the Champions League.

The Italian ace has been linked with the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham in recent weeks after making a bright start to the Serie A season.

11 goals in the opening few months of the season from Cerci have helped the Turin side into seventh spot in their domestic league, and also put the ex-Roma man into contention for a spot in the Azzurri’s World Cup squad.

Even though he is rumoured to be settled at Torino after a turbulent career, Cerci says that he would be open to a move in order to play in the highest level of European competition:

“I feel ready to play in the Champions League. I’m mature, I think the time may be ripe to take a step up in quality,” he told the Daily Star.

A number of Premier League sides are rumoured to have has scouts assessing the 26-year-old in recent months, which has led to rumours of January swoops for his services.
