Chelsea target £45m Chukwueze

first_imgRelatedPosts Super Eagles stars model new national team jersey Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea EPL: Chelsea, Liverpool in cagey duel Chelsea is reportedly stepping up their pursuit of wingers in the transfer market this summer and have identified Samuel Chukwueze as a potential target if they fail in a bid to land Jadon Sancho.Sancho has emerged as a star for Borussia Dortmund and England this season, but the Blues face stiff competition from the likes of Manchester United for the 20-year-old who has been rated at £90 million. Should a pursuit for the forward fall through then focus is set to shift to Chukwueze according to Goal.The 21-year-old has already emerged as a key player for Villarreal after breaking into the side during the 2018-19 season and has 12 goals and seven assists from 68 appearances.The winger is also a Nigerian international and has earned 13 caps, scoring twice in that time for the Super Eagles.Chukwueze was a target for Liverpool last summer but Jurgen Klopp’s interest appears to have cooled since then with the Reds on their way to the Premier League title.Although he is under contract at the Spanish side until 2023, he represents a much cheaper option than Sancho and could be available for around £45 million, according to the report. That might be enough for Chelsea to consider making a move ahead of a summer where at least a couple of their attacking options on the wing could be set to depart Stamford Bridge.Willian is out of contract at the end of June and looks no closer to extending his stay at the Blues where he has featured since 2013.Pedro could also be on the move in the summer, with the 32-year-old admitting he is uncertain where he will lining up next season having fallen out of favour under Frank Lampard.Tags: ChelseaJadon SanchoPlayer TargetsSamuel ChukwuezeSummer Transfer Windowlast_img read more

Arteta Dismisses Aubameyang’s Exit Rumor from Arsenal

first_imgAubameyang – who captained Arsenal in their impressive 2-0 win over Manchester United on Wednesday – told French station RMC he is “100 per cent here” without adding if he would extend his stay.Arteta, though, was adamant at his press conference on Thursday that the former Borussia Dortmund striker was integral to his plans.“I don’t even think about the possibility with Auba (leaving),” said Arteta.“I want him here.”Arteta, whose first few games in charge has seen an improvement in Arsenal than the disjointed team under his compatriot and predecessor Unai Emery, reiterated how much he wanted fiery Swiss midfielder Granit Xhaka to stay despite his falling out with the fans.Xhaka – who was stripped of the captaincy by Emery after his angry reaction when fans booed him – has been linked with a loan move to Bundesliga outfit Hertha Berlin.However, Arteta revealed he had also asked the Arsenal players to try and change Xhaka’s mind.“I wanted his teammates to get his back and help him to change his mind because we need him,” said Arteta.“I believe that if we were able to do that the fans would respond in a positive way.“I’ve seen him act every day, how he trains, how he lives his profession and the quality of the player. He could be a really important player for the club.”One player he will definitely have to find a replacement for in the January transfer window is defender Calum Chambers.The 24-year-old will be out for between six to nine months the club said on Thursday after undergoing surgery on a cruciate ligament injury he suffered in the league defeat by Chelsea last weekend.“That we will try to be in the market to see options that can strengthen the team, that’s for sure and our obligation,” said Arteta.“My obligation is to give my opinion on the things we can improve.“Obviously we have a bad injury with Calum a few days ago that will change our plans at the back.“I’m more concerned about getting players back from injury and try to improve the players I have here.”Arteta’s next challenge is an intriguing FA Cup third round home tie with Championship leaders Leeds United on Monday.The 37-year-old former Manchester City assistant coach is full of respect for Leeds’s manager Marcelo Bielsa and expects them to be in the Premier League next season.“How he (Bielsa) makes them fight and run and challenge and compete and never give up in any game under any circumstances,” said Arteta.“The way they play, the manner they behave. I followed their coach for a long time and I know how tough it will be.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Arsenal star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be staying with the club despite speculation he wanted a move said Gunners manager Mikel Arteta yesterday.The 30-year-old France-born Gabonese international, reports suggest, is reluctant to commit himself any longer than the 18 months remaining on his contract due to Arsenal struggling to qualify for the Champions League.Arsenal are nine points adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea after Wednesday’s matches.last_img read more

Wolverines set to fight Irish

first_imgThough the hype last weekend surrounded No. 1 Ohio State traveling to No. 2 Texas, this weekend’s marquee game involves a more time-honored rivalry as Michigan will play Notre Dame in another match up of two schools with national championship aspirations.Last season, the Wolverines were upset by the Fighting Irish 17-10 in The Big House, but this year No. 11 Michigan will try to avenge that loss as they travel to South Bend to face No. 2 Notre Dame.So far, the Wolverines have been carried by the stellar play of junior running back Mike Hart. Hart, who has run for 262 yards over the team’s first two games, appears to have benefited from Michigan’s installation of a zone blocking scheme which opens up more holes for him to run through.”I think Mike Hart would be an outstanding football player regardless of the scheme,” Michigan coach Lloyd Carr said in the Big Ten’s weekly teleconference. “I think the repetition that he gets by utilizing primarily a zone scheme, I think he likes it, and that’s important in the big picture.”Hart’s ability to run the ball successfully will be crucial to the outcome of the game, but whether Michigan relies on the legs of Hart or the arm of quarterback Chad Henne comes down to how the Wolverines play on the other side of the ball.”I think every game is dictated by how you play defensively,” Carr said.Notre Dame will certainly challenge the Michigan defense as they are led by Heisman Trophy favorite Brady Quinn, a quarterback who has excelled under second-year coach Charlie Weiss.The Wolverines will be looking to discontinue a pattern of losses in their road openers, a series of losses some critics have attributed to weak home scheduling, but a thought dismissed by Carr.”I think it’s a combination of things and hopefully we’ll find the answer to that question this week,” Carr said.Though both teams are 2-0, Michigan has beaten two relatively weak opponents at home, while Notre Dame has challenged themselves by traveling to Georgia Tech and playing Penn State at home.Tate-less Iowa Avoids Upset, In-State Matchup AheadThe No. 16 Iowa Hawkeyes were nearly upset on the road last week by a lowly Syracuse team. Drew Tate, one of the most highly touted quarterbacks in the country, missed the game and the Hawkeyes needed an emotional goal line stand to prevail in double overtime.This week, Iowa will play in-state rival Iowa State. The Cyclones took last year’s rivalry 23-3 and though the game lacks conference implications, it does have a lot of significance as one of the country’s most hotly contested in-state rivalry games.”It’s a one week season,” Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said. “It’s a huge game for both teams; it’s a huge game for everyone in this state.”The big question heading into the game will be the health of Tate, who threw for 22 touchdowns last season.”We’re optimistic, but that being said you’re dealing with a muscle strain so there’s no way to predict it,” Ferentz said. “We’re hopeful that this week he looks good and if so he’ll be our starting quarterback.Northwestern Shocked By I-AA OpponentNorthwestern was shocked by division I-AA opponent New Hampshire this past weekend, losing the game 34-17. The loss followed an emotional week — one victory in the Wildcats’ first game following the sudden death of head coach Randy Walker.”On any given Saturday anyone can win,” Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald said. “You need to come ready to play for any game.”Fitzgerald did recognize, however, that his own team was to blame as well for their embarrassing loss. “At some point in the last 48 hours of the business trip we lost our mental edge and our mental focus,” he said.Northwestern will not overlook this week’s opponent, Eastern Michigan, even though the Eagles enter 0-2. Fitzgerald called last week’s loss a “learning experience” and didn’t downplay this week’s opponent at all.”Their record doesn’t show it at 0-2, but [Eastern Michigan] is a football team that is very hungry and plays very well.”last_img read more

SU adds former Buffalo volunteer assistant Evan Ruechel to coaching staff

Prior to that, he was an assistant coach at UNC Wilmington, helping lead the Seahawks to a 26-28 record. The Oconto, Wisconsin native played baseball at the collegiate level for four years before coaching softball at Indiana Wesleyan in 2017. AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I am excited for the opportunity to join a talented and experienced staff at Syracuse University,” Ruechel said in the release. “It is a great school, in a competitive conference and I am very thankful for the opportunity Coach Doepking has given me.” Ruechel specializes in developing hitters, something that was important during the search, Doepking said. The Orange are adding 10 players in the upcoming season, including seven incoming freshmen and three transfers. Former hitting coach Vanessa Shippy officially left the Orange on Monday, when Oklahoma State, her alma mater, announced that she would be a volunteer assistant coach for 2021.

Lakers vowing they will not quit despite struggles

first_imgThe Lakers started the season like a track runner making a significant push off the starting block.The Lakers have since experienced plenty of instances where their relay team has dropped the baton.Through both instances, Lakers coach Luke Walton shared a Larry Bird quote that assistant Casey Owens found to provide a framework through an unpredictable rebuilding season.“ ‘Don’t let winning make you soft; don’t let losing make you quit,’ ” Walton recalled. “It’s about continuing good habits on the offensive end, and on the defensive end sharing the ball and getting back on defense,” Lakers rookie forward Brandon Ingram said. “Rebounding the basketball. That’s all the things we have to work on.”Inconsistency plagued the Lakers in various ways on their recent trip. The Lakers squandered double-digit leads in Sacramento, Miami and Charlotte. Walton became so upset with the team’s effort against Brooklyn that he criticized them for being mentally soft afterwards. The Lakers scored a season-low 14 points in the first quarter in Friday’s loss to Orlando.Meanwhile, Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson lamented the team’s inability to make defensive stops in close games.“We have to be able to go through bad moments of the game and not have mental lapses,” Lakers reserve guard Marcelo Huertas said. “You just have to stay calm and make good decisions.”There were a few times the Lakers did not look calm against the Orlando, when the players argued with each other over failed defensive rotations. But Walton mostly credited his players for still competing and not harboring too much frustration.“That’s cool, but that ain’t no excuse,” Lakers forward Thomas Robinson said. “They pay us to come out here and play. We have to come out here and play to win.”With a home-heavy upcoming schedule against the Clippers (Sunday), Utah (Tuesday), Dallas (Thursday), Toronto (Jan. 1) and Memphis (Jan. 3), the Lakers held out hope that will happen. “We’re not going to quit,” Walton said. “We’re going to keep fighting until we figure it out.”Role changeFor all the growth Ingram experienced with point guard duties, the Lakers rookie also showed a few hiccups during the team’s seven-game trip.Sure, Ingram nearly became the youngest NBA player in league history to log a triple-double when he posted nine points, 10 rebounds and nine assists against Cleveland. But on the Lakers’ trip, he also averaged six points on 31.9 percent shooting. Ingram also said he “lacked defensive intensity” the last few games.”“Offensively, I’m not where I want to be,” Ingram said. “I haven’t been knocking down shots. I haven’t gotten into a rhythm.”And yet…“I’m not worried about it,” Ingram said. “It will come as long as the offense moves the ball and we do the right things. It’s not about my shot. It’s about the team’s shots and what’s the best shots for the team.” “It’s appropriate when we were winning. Now it’s appropriate when we’re losing. We’re not going to quit. We’re going to keep fighting until we figure it out.”The Lakers (11-22) have struggled for a while to figure things out. They have lost 12 of their past 13 games. They just ended a seven-game trip with a 1-6 record. And the Lakers’ Christmas Day present is a game against the Clippers (22-9) on Sunday at Staples Center, a team that has beaten the Lakers by an average 20.5 points in their last 11 contests.The Lakers have not beaten the Clippers since Oct. 29, 2013, when Mike D’Antoni patrolled the sidelines for the Lakers.“It can be the start of a run for us,” Lakers guard D’Angelo Russell said. “We just have to keep believing.”The Lakers will need more than that to beat the Clippers. Yet, the Lakers believe they can stop the misery by improving basically on everything.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
