Skrtel close to Fener switch as old Prem favourite nears exit

Martin Skrtel’s reported £5.5million move from Liverpool to Fenerbahce is close to being concluded – but it’s unlikely he’ll become team-mates with one of his long-term adversaries.

Skrtel’s agent confirmed last week that the player was considering offers from Turkey, Germany and lucrative offer from an unnamed club in the Chinese Super League.

The Slovakian captain is now though said to be on the verge of a completing a transfer to Fenerbahce along with PSG’s Gregory Van Der Weil, according to the Turkish giant’s president, Aziz Yildirim, who expects the deal to go through later this week.

Speaking to AMK Spor, Yildirim said: “Van der Wiel and Slovak Skrtel transfers are almost done.”

The centre-back signed for Liverpool back in 2008 for fee of around £6.5millon from Russian side Zenit St Petersburg.

In an eight-year spell with the Merseyside club, the 31-year-old has gone to make a total of 242 appearances for the club, while chipping in with 16 goals.

Skrtel, however, only won one major honour during his time at Anfield, with the 2012 capture of the League Cup. In the same year the defender was also crowned the club’s Player of the Year.

Robin van Persie: Linked with move to Chelsea

It is unlikely that Skrtel will line up with former Premier League players, Nani and Robin van Persie, as both look to be set for transfers away this summer, with the latter said to have grown frustrated with being constantly substituted, despite scoring 16 goals in 31 appearances for the club.

Yilidirim also confirmed that the club were open to potential bids for the striker, saying: “Van Persie, we’re waiting for buyers, if he wants to be sold.”

Nani, meanwhile, has been linked with a move to both Everton and Liverpool.

Spurs, Leicester & Liverpool among Sigurdsson suitors ? report

Iceland centre-half Ragnar Sigurdsson is reportedly on the radar of a number of Premier League clubs, including Leicester and Tottenham.

Sigurdsson scored the equaliser and was named man of the match as Iceland embarrassed England in their Euro 2016 last-16 clash on Monday and the Krasnodar defender’s form has made clubs across Europe take notice.

The Guardian reports that Bundesliga sides Schalke and Wolfsburg have already made an approach for the 30-year-old, but Sigurdsson is said to favour a switch to the Premier League.

Champions Leicester and Spurs are both said to have made contact with the central defender’s representatives while the Guardian also credits Liverpool with an interest.

Sigurdsson, who is under contract with Krasnodar until 2018, would cost around £4million.

TT?s Top 10: Highest-rated Premier League players at Euro 2016

It’s no surprise to see Dimitri Payet and Mesut Ozil make our list for the top 10 Premier League performers at Euro 2016 so far, but numbers six and four might come as something of a shock….

Using the help of Whoscored’s statistics, we’ve compiled a list of the Premier League’s best performers in France so far – and you won’t be hugely shocked to see a number of Welshman make the list.

Just imagine if we still had Gareth Bale too……

10. Joe Allen, Wales (average rating: 7.33)

The Liverpool man might find himself nothing more than squad man under Jurgen Klopp, but there’s no doubting his value for his country after a string of impressive performances in the Wales engine room.

Allen, who might find himself surplus to requirements at Anfield this summer, has played in all but 16 minutes for Chris Coleman’s side this summer, given suitors a reminder of his qualities and why he was once branded (by Brendan Rodgers) as the Welsh Xavi.

9. Xherdan Shaqiri, Switzerland (average rating: 7.38)

A goal of the tournament contender in the last-16 clash with Poland wasn’t quite enough to help Switzerland progress into the last eight as they were eliminated on penalties, meaning we’ll not see any more of the man once dubbed the Alpine Messi.

But the player can at least return to Stoke this summer with his head held high… and with team-mate Peter Crouch’s approval.

I’m glad shaqiri has been watching me in training 😉

— Peter Crouch (@petercrouch) June 25, 2016

8. Ben Davies, Wales (average rating: 7.49)

The second Welshman on the list, Davies has been playing on the left-hand side of the Dragons’ three-man central defence, which, alongside James Chester (we’ll come to him later) has outperformed the rock at the heart of their backline, Ashley Williams (7.07 average rating).

Should Danny Rose (6.98 rating at Euro 2016) be concerned about his starting spot at Spurs next season?

7. Aaron Ramsey, Wales (average rating: 7.50)

James Chester: Rated higher than Aaron Ramsey

He might be fiercely Welsh, and also have dyed his hair a rotten colour, but one goal and two assists in four games tells you everything you need to know about Ramsey’s importance.

Having been tipped to make an impact at the tournament by Arsene Wenger, the Frenchman will now hope Ramsey can bring some of his form back with him to the Emirates after an indifferent campaign for the Gunners last time around.

6. Lukasz Fabianski, Poland (average rating: 7.54)

Seen as something of a calamity keeper during his time with Arsenal, Fabianski has grown in confidence and maturity since moving to Swansea. Having ousted Premier League rivals Wojciech Szczesny and Artur Boruc for the No 1 jersey for his country, he’s rewarded the Poles by keeping three clean sheets in four games, with only Shaqiri’s unbelievable effort breaching his ranks so far.

To put his performances into perspective, the next highest rated keeper so far in France in Gigi Buffon (average rating 7.17) – and most people know exactly how good he’s been so far.

5.Mesut Ozil, Germany (average rating: 7.56)

Mesut Ozil: Has been asked about the PL by Germany team-mates

Labelled as nothing more than ‘an assist king’ by our readers, it may surprise you to learn the Arsenal star has created just one goal so far for Die Mannschaft. In fact, Ozil makes the list after some impressive all-round stats for Germany thus far.

Playing alongside Julian Draxler and Thomas Muller in the three behind Mario Gomez, Ozil might not have grabbed the headlines so far, but there’s no doubting his effectiveness and importance for the second favourites.

4. James Chester, Wales (average rating: 7.71)

Wales’ second-best performer behind Gareth Bale (8.33), Chester’s displays may have come as something as a surprise given his lack of a look-in in his favoured position at West Brom. Used in a variety of positions by Tony Pulis (namely as left-back) Chester has been an absolute rock at the back for Chris Coleman’s side, winning an average of 2.5 aerials per game and making numerous important tackles and interceptions.

With Jonas Olsson and Gareth McAuley the preferred centre-half options for West Brom, Pulis may want to think about playing Chester centrally for the Baggies next season….

3. Dimitri Payet, France (average rating: 8.17)

No surprise given this man’s performances for the host nation so far, or the fact that another day brings with it another cash-rich European suitor join his growing list of admirers.

Two goals, one assist and some unbelievable performances have seen Payet rightly selected as most oberservers’ stand-out player of the tournament so far.

His rise to prominence for club and country over the past 12 months makes Marseille’s decision to allow him to leave for just £10.7million one of the biggest transfer misjudgements of recent years.

2. Eden Hazard, Belgium (average rating: 8.22)

The revitalisation of Hazard has been as pleasurable to watch as it has been frustrating, given his woeful performances for Chelsea last term.

Hazard arrived in France, having pretty much spent the majority of last season failing to get out of second gear, and it seems his half-baked efforts for the Blues are paying rich rewards for the Red Devils.

With one (brilliant) goal, three assists, is it any surprise to see Real Madrid back lurking around the Belgium playmaker once again?

1. Kevin De Bruyne, Belgium (average rating: 8.35)

Kevin de Bruyne: Not yet scored at Euro 2016

Not just the Premier League’s best performer in France, the tournament’s best player in France so far, according to whoscored.com’s stats.

After a stellar first season with Man City, the £55million they spent on him last summer already looks an astute piece of business, and for all the struggles of his club mates, Joe Hart and Raheem Sterling, in France, De Bruyne at least can return to Manchester this summer safe in the knowledge that his place in Pep Guardiola’s side is as good as guaranteed.

The two-month injury absence of De Bruyne was blamed by some as a factor in Man City’s title failure last season. If they can keep him fit for the majority of this coming term, it’s more than fair to assume the Belgian will again be key for City’s trophy hopes.

Carragher: England too soft because academies create babies

Jamie Carragher has branded England’s players “too soft” following their exit from Euro 2016.

Manager Roy Hodgson resigned after the 2-1 defeat to Iceland meant the Three Lions were knocked out of the competition in France.

However, former England and Liverpool defender Carragher believes the players should take their share of the blame.

He told the Daily Mail: “Too soft. The more I think about England’s humiliation against Iceland, the more those two words come into my mind.

“This is what England’s players have become. The Academy Generation – for that is what they are – are soft physically and soft mentally.

“We saw the end result in all its gruesome detail in Nice on Monday when another major tournament ended in calamity and blame.

“Roy Hodgson, inevitably, carries the can. There was no way he could continue as England manager after the results and performances at Euro 2016 and he cannot escape the spotlight – but don’t for one moment think the players should escape liability.

“I call them the Academy Generation because they have come through in an era when footballers have never had more time being coached. At this point I want to make it clear I am not pointing the finger at academy coaches, as others will do.

“But they get ferried to football schools, they work on immaculate pitches, play in pristine training gear every day and everything is done to ensure all they have to do is focus on football. We think we are making them men but actually we are creating babies.

“Life has been too easy. They have been pampered from a young age, had money thrown at them and, when things have gone wrong, they have been told it is never their fault. Some 12- and 13-year-olds have agents now. Why?

“It never is the players’ fault when England crash out of a competition, is it? Well, it’s time to explode that myth.

“I call some of the squad, I don’t believe it applies to the full group, too soft. It’s always someone else’s fault when they don’t produce – the coach picked the wrong team, someone played the wrong pass – so when I heard suggestions the senior players were unhappy with Hodgson’s training, I was incensed.

“Why won’t they take responsibility? They live lives now with personal assistants, player liaison officers, nannies and agents organising every little detail for them. Some wouldn’t even know how to book a holiday or an appointment at the dentist for themselves.

“It strips character. You can see that in the interviews they give…there really is no point in watching them, as they are afraid of saying anything.”
