Muriel appears to have snubbed the Premier League and commits future to Udinese.

Udinese starlet Luis Muriel has committed the striker’s future to the Serie A club by signing a contract extension until the summer of 2018, confirms the Italian side’s website.

There has been much interest in the Colombian in recent months after Muriel scored 11 goals in 22 matches in the league last term.

When the attacker was playing for Lecce back in the 2011/12 campaign, the Daily Mail reported that Arsenal were keen on bringing the South American to north London.

However, nothing ever came of this and Muriel made the switch to Udinese and it was over a year until English clubs started to show interest in the South American once again.

The Daily Express said in July that Liverpool were keeping tabs on the 22-year-old as a possible replacement for want-away attacker Luis Suarez.

At the time the Reds were in discussion with the Gunners over the future of the Uruguayan, but in the end Suarez decided to stay at Anfield.

The interest from the Premier League didn’t end there though, as champions Manchester United were the next side to be touting the Colombia international and according to the Metro were considering Muriel as an alternative to Wayne Rooney.

The long-term Red Devils stalwart was being courted by Chelsea for much of the summer and with the club genuinely worried they could lose the 27-year-old, Udinese’s star man came onto the radar.

Muriel has started this campaign strongly as well, already netting two Serie A goals and providing one assist in three matches.
