Tevez, Torres Are PSG Striker Targets, Mail Says: Soccer Roundup
The following is a roundup of soccer stories from U.K. newspapers, with clickable links to the Web.
Tevez, who hasn’t played for City since leaving the U.K. without permission last year, and Torres, who hasn’t scored for Chelsea since October, are among strikers being made available to the French league leader, the newspaper said.
Inter Milan and AC Milan have failed in attempts to sign Tevez, and PSG, funded by the Qatar Investment Authority, is looking for players to help improve the club, the newspaper said.
Lazio may offer 6 million pounds ($9 million) for Arsenal forward Andrey Arshavin, the Daily Mirror said.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger isn’t planning to extend the Russian’s contract beyond 2013 and will look to sell him, the newspaper said.
The north London club bought Arshavin three years ago for 12 million pounds, and the arrival of Gervinho and the return of Thierry Henry have kept him on the bench, the newspaper said.
Arshavin’s former club, Zenit St. Petersburg, is also interested in signing him, the newspaper said.
Fergie Tips Solskjaer
Ferguson, who has said he’ll be in charge for three more years, praised the Solskjaer for his willingness to learn and ability to pick up things from training sessions and matches.
Solskjear, United’s former reserve manager, led Molde to its first Norwegian league title in his first year in charge.
“If you go to a club in Norway that have never won the league ever in their history and you win the league you have to have something about you to do that,” Ferguson said.
Saudi Interest in Jones
Jones, who joined Stoke 18 months ago for 8 million pounds, has struggled to make the first team since Peter Crouch was signed in the summer.
