Euro Paper Talk: Wilshere move collapses; Spurs dealt blow

A potential exit route for Jack Wilshere appears to be off, while Spurs have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of a winger, according to Wednesday’s European papers.


Sampdoria move off for Arsenal man

Jack Wilshere will not be moving to Serie A side Sampdoria this summer, a report in Italy claims. state midfielder’s wage demands were too high, something which scuppered his potential move to the club.

The Blucerchiati had been linked to the former Bournemouth loanee, who made 27 appearances for the Cherries in the Premier League last season.

The 25-year-old has also apparently attracted interest from AC Milan, and could have followed countryman Joe Hart’s footsteps in a shock move to Italy.

However, the midfielder’s wage demands are simply too high and would have pushed Samp over their budget, the report claims.


Spurs winger blow

Tottenham Hotspur’s pursuit of AC Milan star Suso may have just become more difficult as the Spaniard has just hired a new agent.

The 23-year-old, who has a contract with Milan until 2019, was set to sign an extension towards the end of Silvio Berlusconi’s reign at the club.

The Spaniard had agreed a new deal with the then CEO Adriano Galliani which would have seen the former Liverpool man’s wages almost doubled.

However, the new Chinese ownership at Milan are yet to tie down Suso, causing him to reconsider his future. His new agent may be a sign that he is ready to find a deal with Milan.

The man who will become his new representative is Alessandro Lucci, who masterminded Leonardo Bonucci’s move from Juventus to the Rossoneri earlier this month.


Man Utd target set for AC Milan

Renato Sanches is set to complete a move to AC Milan from Bayern Munich, snubbing interest from Manchester United.

This is according to L’Equipe, who claim that the Portugal international will move to the San Siro club for a fee of €40m.

Sanches has reportedly given his green light for the move to go ahead, making the seven-time Champions League winners his preferred destination.

Italian paper Corriere dello Sport claim that the player’s agent Jorge Mendes has reportedly been in dialogue with Milan chiefs since last season’s Champions League Final in Cardiff.

This is where the Rossoneri struck a deal for another one of Mendes’ clients in Porto striker Andre Silva.

Talking after Bayern Munich’s 3-2 win over Chelsea, Reanto Sanches told German paper Bild: “I am not happy about my first year at Bayern Munich, that’s clear.

“I’m young, I have to play a lot. I think the chance to do so is greater in Milan than in Munich.

“I want to play more consistently and [a move to] AC Milan is a very interesting option. If the two clubs reach an agreement, I would be happy to join the Rossoneri.”


Fenerbahce name price for Arsenal target

Turkish side Fenerbahce have reportedly named their asking price for defender Simon Kjaer, according to reports in Turkey.

Turkish-Football claim that a source close to the club has told them that it will take a bid of £17.5million to land the 28-year-old.

Sevilla are the latest club to make an offer for the centre-half, who Arsenal saw a £10.5m bid rejected for.

Sevilla sporting director Oscar Arias confirmed being in the race for Kjaer: “We want to reach an agreement over the transfer of Simon Kjaer,” Arias was quoted as saying by Fotomac.

“I do not want the offer to be jeopardised so I am not going to get into details.”

The report suggests that the Gunners are weighing up a possible second bid, though Kjaer’s agent agent Mikkel Beck previously revealed that his client is happy at Fenerbahce.

Koeman makes Barkley admission as Arsenal emerge as favourites

Everton manager Ronald Koeman has admitted that he “100%” expects Ross Barkley to leave the club this summer.  

The attacking midfielder has just one year left to run on his contract, and has definitively rejected the offer of a new contract.

Tottenham have been mentioned as possible suitors, but have balked at his reported £50million asking price, while Manchester United and Chelsea have been mentioned as possible suitors, while Arsenal are currently bookmakers’ favourites to land the player.

But despite insisting there are no offers on the table for the player, Koeman is adamant Barkley will be leaving Goodison Park.

“His personal situation is really not so difficult: we made a good offer to him to sign a new contract, he declined that contract and told me that he is looking for a new challenge,” Koeman said.

“It is not Everton future any more, it is his decision, I need to respect that and then we will see what happens but what I heard from the board is there is not really an offer on the table for Ross.

“My priority is not Ross, with respect, it is his decision. I look more to other players. I knew (this) at the end of the season.

“It is really clear, I am looking to other players and that is my priority and not Ross, with respect. It is his decision.

“Everyone knows what the situation is and that’s enough, I don’t talk any more about this.”

Barkley is currently injured, having had surgery on a minor groin problem, and will be out for possibly the next month.

However, he will be expected to return to training as normal when he has recovered and Koeman has no plans to isolate him from the main group.

“He had his groin surgery last week and normally it takes three to four weeks before he is back,” he added.

“He has one more year of contract and we work with respect for people and if he is back after his surgery, after the injury, and back for training he will be part of first team sessions.”

Asked whether he had noticed a change in the player since his return for pre-season Koeman said: “No, he is the same.”

In light of the England international’s imminent departure, the Toffees are likely to step up their pursuit of Swansea’s Gylfi Sigurdsson as a replacement, although the Welsh club are holding out for £50m, which has proved a sticking point in negotiations so far.

Everton have already been busy in the transfer market, having signed a whopping 11 players so far, including Wayne Rooney, Davy Klaassen, Jordan Pickford, Michael Keane and Sandro Ramirez. Their summer spree has largely been funded by the £90m they received for selling Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United, and Barkley now looks set to join the Belgian out of the exit door.

Barkley has been with Everton for 12 years, making 150 senior appearances for the club, and scoring 21 goals in the process.

Agent of Bundesliga defender labels Spurs a ?fantastic club?

The agent of Hoffenheim defender Jeremy Toljan has increased speculation about his future, with Tottenham Hotspur rumoured to be interested.

Toljan has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur as a replacement for Kyle Walker, who moved to Manchester City earlier this month.

The German international has been with the Bundesliga club since 2011, but his agent Ersin Akan has spoken out about the rumours linking Toljan with a move to North London this summer.

“It is always a pleasure to read big clubs like Tottenham are interested in Jeremy,” Akan told Sky Sports.

“Spurs are a fantastic club with an excellent progression in the last years, but we didn’t speak to the responsible persons and, for the moment, everything is a rumour.”

As well as Walker’s departure, Spurs have parted ways with defender Federico Fazio who has joined AS Roma.

Mauricio Pochettino has yet to complete a signing this summer, and with the new Premier League season less than three weeks away, Toljan could become the clubs first arrival.

Arsenal ?should have signed Benzema, rather than Lacazette?

Philippe Coutinho’s future is up in the air, Arsenal and Manchester United fans lament their clubs’ transfer business, and are Chelsea in trouble after being beaten by ‘only’ Bayern Munich?

Have anything you’d like to discuss? Join the debate here…


Is Coutinho staying or going?

The reports are absolute b******t. Coutinho has agreed to nothing. Radio Catalonia are conveniently leaving out the fact that they would have to get Liverpool’s permission to discuss anything , never mind agree terms.

It’s nonsense and it shouldn’t be doing people’s heads in because there is absolutely no truth in it. He’ll be a Liverpool player when this window shuts.



MrMak the reports may not be genuine, I don’t believe everything I read… But do you honestly think Barca haven’t talked to Coutinho? I personally don’t believe they would’ve put in a bid without knowing he will sign for them
it doesn’t mean Coutinho will push through a move but we can’t take anything for granted
as for getting Liverpool’s permission, after all we’ve been through in the VVD saga are you really saying they wouldn’t have talked to him without our permission?



Lemar and Lacazette no Sanchez replacement

Of what I’ve heard from football experts and some Arsenal fans, apparently signing lemar and lacazette but letting sanchez go will be a good summer for us. I have to say, they’ve gotten their heads so far up wenger’s a*** their ability to judge has become the same as wengers.
First of all, Lacazette is not better than either morata or Lukaku (In my opinion) so our rivals got the better signings even though they might have overpaid but so did we.Secondly,I’ll be utterly disappointed if we offer anything above £40m for lemar. If it’s an monaco midfielder we should have gone for it should have been bernardo silva during the start of the summer.Saying that, lemar is still a good player but not worth above £40m. Either ways, as andy says the only way sanchez can be replaced is with messi, neymar, bale or ronaldo and that’s never going to happen. Mbappe would be a good shout but that’s never going to happen either.

I think more than anything if we let sanchez go it will really speak volumes about the lack of ambition of the club.I mean do you really think if we keep sanchez he will play badly for us. It’s nonsense for especially a player like him I know he’ll give 100% it’s all a question about whether Arsenal budge or not.

Also,even if we manage to keep hold of our best players, and with the signings we made it still wouldn’t be a good summer.Simply because other clubs have made better signings and it should be us doing that because we finished below all of them.We desperately need a Defender and a central midfielder.Van dijk and william carvalho. Then I’d be happy.But knowing wenger and this club this won’t happen because wenger is lazy at man management and should he sign them he wouldn’t want the job of convincing players who take their places in the first team.

Money not the only way to be competitive

I’ve got no real problem with Levy not spending money for the sake of it. We s****ed that 90 million Bale money and got nowhere (at the time), we wasted 30 million on Disco Sissisikoo last year, money down the drain.

I know at the end of the day, it’s those shiny silver things that count, but I think we’ve proven there is another way of at least being competitive at least. The last two years have been pretty much the most exiting time to be a Spud-lover for a fair few decades and long may that continue, and worth remembering during those 2 years I’m pretty certain Pool, YooUtd, City, Goonies and Chelsea out spent us and not all of them finished above us for those years…

Money certainly does help buy happiness in the footballing world, but I like to think it isn’t the only way.



Flawed FFP favours big clubs

I know we’re simply going around in circles with this, my personal stance is if an owner wants to “give” a large wedge to his/her club, then fine, simply put in rules to stop clubs borrowing huge wedges (i.e. Leeds/Portsmouth)…. although there is also a part of me that says if a club is stupid/desperate enough to get into that sort of debt, then that’s their problem. Businesses can go bankrupt, no logical reason why clubs should be prevented from being allowed to do the same thing, other than sentimental nonsense.

As for people thinking it’s a good thing, not too sure many of us did. I also thought, as Red/TKO says, the idea behind it was the big-clubs pulling up the drawbridge behind them while using Leeds/Portsmouth scenarios as the excuse.



Transfer market headache

Just seen Mourinho’s Barcelona prematch interview. Looks like there is a serious issue with getting additional players in. Sounded like the best he was hoping for was getting an additional midfielder. I would be very disappointed if that is a 29 year old Matic at a cost of £50m. I know Ed is going to take the fall for the lack of signings but surely also Mourinho has targeted players that are extremely difficult to get. I wouldn’t blame Ed at all for not paying a combined £100m for a 28 year old Perisic and a 29 yr old Matic. It’s obvious we need experience in the team but trying to sign Matic after mugging Chelsea off over Lukaku and sign Perisic from a newly cash rich Inter just sounds like a transfer market headache. Either way, as it stands, top 4 looks the target again next year!



Where are the top signings?

I do think keeping Coutinho is massive and I agreed with Klopp before in saying that it is like a big signing but that only applies if we strengthen. We can not going into next season with last seasons first 11 + Salah. The other players we’ve signed are squad players and it’ll be great to see how they do and if they can push their way into the starting 11 but you don’t pin your season on those kinds of players, they are welcome bonuses.

Furthermore, I like Lovren but I don’t want to pin my season on him either. I like Henderson but we can’t depend on him for a season because of his heel problem and also you guys know I don’t think he is good enough defensively. We all know that the CL matches are going to put serious pressure on our already threadbare squad. We don’t want to go backwards, we don’t want to stay the same as last season. We need to push on and that is going to require top signings and it’s 3 weeks til our first PL match, so WHERE THE **** ARE THEY .



Glazers out!

We are an economic machine for the glazers who are quite happy to settle for top four not the big prizes and then they extract their dividends. The others well what can I say they just want to be the best!

The fundamental change for me is the glazers move on!



Arsenal should have bought Benzema

Right now it’s just a rumor but mbappe is mostly joining madrid and that paves the way for benzema to leave.We are being touted as being interested for him.This is the player we should have gotten, and now that he might possibly be available we should go and get him.This is a proper proven world class signing,not lacazette.But since wenger felt to rush to sign laca because he’s french he still can’t ignore benzema.Obviously it means either giroud or welbeck will have to go.It will probably be giroud and as underrated as I think he is if a world class target is available it just has to be done!

Chelsea in for an embarrassment in the Champions League?

Well although this was our only second/third game in preseason. We looked terrible and made Bayern so easy at a times. That is worrying after people started getting carried away when we beat a below par Arsenal on Saturday. We have been brought down to earth by a class above us Bayern. It was a scary performance. Even you could sense the frustration in Conte’s face. Hand on heart we are in for an embarrassment in the CL league given that it was only Bayern that humiliated us. Imagine what could happen if we face R.Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus and PSG? Worrying days ahead !
