Juventus, suggests coach Massimiliano Allegri.

Arsenal have been heavily linked with making Morata their highest paid player in recent days, looking to add further strength after reportedly wrapping up a deal for Granit Xhaka, but Bianconeri coach Allegri wants his player to snub their advances.

“His goal in the Coppa Italia final is a sign of continuity,” he said to UnoMattina.

“He’s a young guy, and he needs to stay a few more years at Juventus in order to grow.”

However, should the worst case scenario happen and the Spaniard exits the Juventus Stadium in the summer then the tactician feels as though he is adequately insured.

“I have a team full of very strong strikers,” he commented.

“This team is hard to improve, so the way we must do it is by improving individual players.

“Improving by buying players from other teams is difficult for us.”

Juventus secured the league and cup double last season, for the second year in a row.
