Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta feels Xabi Alonso would have the pick of Premier League clubs should he choose to leave Real Madrid.

Xabi's current deal expires in June and he's been linked with Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United already this month.

Arteta said: "He is a very noble guy. I'm sure he's looked at it from every angle and he will have a clear decision in his head.

"But here (in England), there are many teams interested in him - he can choose among them."
