Premier League giants chasing Lyon youngster

Premier League sides Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, Southampton and Everton are understood to be following Olympique Lyon youngster Samuel Umtiti, according to reports in the press.

The 21 year old is a versatile defender, who can play both as a centre back and a left back. He has made 30 appearances for his club this season, scoring 2 goals and providing 3 assists. His exploits in defence have been helpful in steering his club to the helm of the Ligue 1 standings.



Chelsea following Anderlecht teenagers

Chelsea are understood to be keeping tabs on Anderlecht teenagers Youri Tielemans and Leander Dendoncker, according to reports in the press. It is understood that Chelsea scout Tony White watched the players in action when they met Kortrijk on Sunday, with the game ending 2-0 in Anderlecht’s favour.

17 year old Tielemans is also understood to be on the wishlist of Premier League heavyweights Manchester United and Arsenal. He is a traditional central midfielder, who is also capable of playing in a defensive midfield role. The promising Belgian has contributed to 8 goals in 38 appearances for his club this season, and is touted to be a star of the future.



Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool target likely to move to Madrid

Premier League heavyweights Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool are in for a major shock, with respect to their pursuit of Porto full back Danilo. According to reports in The Daily Mirror, the 23 year old is ready to pour cold water on the hopes of the aforementioned sides and move to Real Madrid in the summer.

It was recently reported that the Red Devils had become ready to meet the player’s release clause by splashing out £37m (€50m) for him, and that his agent had flown to Manchester to broker a deal for him. However, reports in the press now indicate that the Brazilian may be on the verge of a move to the Santiago Bernabeu for an even lower transfer fee of £27m.



Young elated after scoring crucial winner

Manchester United winger Ashley Young was found in an elated mood following his side’s important last-ditch 1-0 win over Newcastle United at St. James’ Park in the Premier League. The Englishman was the scorer of the Red Devils’ only goal, after a costly error by the Magpies ‘keeper Tim Krul, which led to the ball landing right at the player’s feet.

Youngs was quoted telling reporters after the win: "We heard of results, others winning around us so it was vitally important to get a win here."



Rodgers heaps praise on Henderson after Burnley win

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers lauded Jordan Henderson following his side’s convincing 2-0 win over minnows Burnley in the Premier League yesterday. Henderson was the star of the match, scoring a scorcher from 20 yards in the 29th minute of play, before stepping up to provide the assist for the side’s 2nd goal, which was tucked away by Daniel Sturridge.

The Northern Irishman was quoted telling reporters after the game: "It was great - the strike for his goal and the feed into Daniel Sturridge for the second. He is up there with the top assist makers in the league."


Allardyce unhappy with decisions that favoured Chelsea

West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce was disappointed after his side slumped to a narrow 1-0 loss at the hands of Chelsea at Upton Park, with the boss pointing out that it was due to a number of decisions that went against them – most notably Eden Hazard’s goal, which was scored from an offside position.

Big Sam was quoted telling reporters, "These decisions need to go for you not against you. In saying all that we shouldn't have lost it in the chances we missed. We started the second half brilliantly, the keeper made some great saves, and it is a shame these are happening on a regular occurrence with no wins. We can only hope it turns in our favour quickly."



QPR boss feels Hoops were unlucky against Arsenal

Queens Park Rangers manager Chris Ramsey was predictably in a disappointed mood after his side slumped to a 2-1 loss at home to Arsenal in the Premier League encounter between the sides last night.

Ramsey was quoted telling reporters, "We played very well but you cannot keep being unlucky and sorry that you lost the game. Detail has cost us and I am genuinely sick for the players, I thought they gave everything but at this level it is the detail that matters."
