Alvaro Morata says that he is “calm” despite the intense speculation surrounding his future at Juventus.

Morata, who has traveled with the Spain squad to France for this summer’s European Championship, has been linked with a number of Premier League sides in recent weeks.

Arsenal have long held an interest in signing the forward, but they face competition from both Chelsea and Manchester United.

Speaking ahead of Spain’s Euro 2016 opener with the Czech Republic on Monday, in which the striker is expected to start after overcoming an injury, Morata insisted that his attention is not on the future at club level.

“I’m very calm,’ Morata said when asked on the speculation. “I have a contract with Juve and I feel at home there.

“At the moment I belong to Juve until someone tells me otherwise. Now I’m thinking about the European Championships, a very important tournament for me and my teammates.

“I know this is a very important European Championship for me. It’s my first European tournament and it’s a dream to play for Spain.

“I feel very well. The pain has passed and I didn’t play the last friendly in order to arrive better.

“If the coach decides, I will be ready to play against the Czech Republic.

“It’s a huge responsibility, it generates a lot of pressure but I’m prepared to be the striker for Spain.”
