Schalke line up permanent deal to sign on-loan right-back Jonjoe Kenny from Everton after impressing in Germany

  • Everton right-back Jonjoe Kenny has impressed on loan at Schalke this season
  • The Bundesliga high-fliers want to make his loan permanent in January
  • Everton are also keen to offload Oumar Niasse and Cuco Martina this month

Schalke want to sign right back Jonjoe Kenny on a permanent deal after impressing on a season-long loan from Everton.

The former England Under-21 defender joined the Bundesliga side in the summer and has so far scored one goal and provided two assists in 17 league games.

Indeed, Kenny has played every game as David Wagner’s side have risen to fifth in the table and continue their challenge for a Champions League berth.

Schalke want to agree a permanent deal for Everton’s on-loan right-back Jonjoe Kenny

After a difficult season in 2018/19, Schalke now sit level with fopurth-placed Borussia Dortmund and just seven points from the summit. 

Meanwhile, director of football Marcel Brands has confirmed Everton are working on deals to sell Oumar Niasse and Cuco Martina this month.

The pair are out of favour, with Martina yet to feature this season after spending last campaign at Feyenoord.

Striker Niasse has appeared just once in the Premier League this season and in total has nine goals in 40 games since moving to Goodison Park in 2016. 

The Toffees are also attempting to offload striker Oumar Niasse during the January window

Atletico Madrid chief ‘flies to Paris to negotiate transfer of Paris Saint-Germain striker Cavani’ http://www.footy.to/2020/01/18/atletico-madrid-chief-flies-to-paris-to-negotiate-transfer-of-paris-saint-germain-striker-cavani/ http://www.footy.to/2020/01/18/atletico-madrid-chief-flies-to-paris-to-negotiate-transfer-of-paris-saint-germain-striker-cavani/#respond Sat, 18 Jan 2020 21:12:29 +0000 http://www.footy.to/?p=15560

Atletico Madrid chief ‘flies to Paris to negotiate transfer of PSG striker Edinson Cavani’ despite interest from Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United

  • Edinson Cavani could be set to leave Paris Saint-Germain in the January window
  • Uruguayan striker’s contract expires in the summer, when he can leave for free
  • Atletico Madrid are frontrunners to sign the 32-year-old forward this month

Atletico Madrid will hold showdown talks with Paris Saint-Germain this week as they seek to seal the signing of striker Edinson Cavani.

The Spanish side have reportedly sent CEO Miguel Angel Gil Marin to Paris to negotiate the transfer despite the reluctance of PSG sporting director Leonardo to strengthen a Champions League rival.  

Spanish outlet Marca claims the PSG ace could be heading to the Wanda Metropolitano despite interest from Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United.

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani  is Atletico Madrid’s top target in January

Cavani has struggled for game time this season because of injuries and competition up front

Cavani has struggled for game time this season because of injuries and competition up front

Cavani, 32, has struggled for game time this season at PSG as a result of injuries and increased competition for places in attack following the loan signing of Mauro Icardi.

He has started just four league matches and played a bit-part role in the group stage of the Champions League. Cavani has scored five times in 13 outings, mainly from the bench.

With his contract set to expire in the summer, PSG are keen to sell Cavani during the January transfer window rather than allow him to leave for nothing.

Atletico are in pole position to sign Cavani and talks have already been held with the French champions. Cavani’s preference is to play for Diego Simeone in Madrid if he is to leave Paris.

Cavani has been an outstanding player for PSG since his arrival from Napoli in 2013, scoring 198 goals in 290 matches, winning five league titles, four French Cups and five French League Cups.

The Uruguayan has spent plenty of time warming the bench and is likely to move away

Paris Saint-Germain ‘prepared to rival Inter’ for Christian Eriksen http://www.footy.to/2020/01/18/paris-saint-germain-prepared-to-rival-inter-for-christian-eriksen/ http://www.footy.to/2020/01/18/paris-saint-germain-prepared-to-rival-inter-for-christian-eriksen/#respond Sat, 18 Jan 2020 21:03:21 +0000 http://www.footy.to/?p=15551

Paris Saint-Germain ‘prepared to rival Inter Milan’ for Christian Eriksen after Italian club see £10.5m offer rejected for wantaway Tottenham midfielder

  • Christian Eriksen looks set to leave Tottenham before the end of the month
  • The Denmark international has been the subject of a bid from Italian giants Inter 
  • Paris Saint-Germain are also confident that they can beat Serie A side to the star
  • His Spurs contract expires in the summer and he will not sign a new one 

Paris Saint-Germain are preparing to hijack Christian Eriksen’s potential move from Tottenham to Inter Milan.

The Denmark international looks set to leave the north London club this month, with just six months left on his current deal. 

Inter have seen their initial bid of £10.5million rejected by the Premier League side, who are holding out for a fee closer to £20m. 

Paris Saint-Germain are ready to rival Inter for the signature of Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen

However, according to the Mirror, Paris Saint-Germain are ready to rival the Serie A side for the 27-year-old’s signature. 

They report that the Ligue 1 champions have been monitoring talks between the two and are encouraged by the low numbers surrounding the deal. 

With Eriksen having just six months left on his contract, the French side are free to approach the player directly, too. 

The former Ajax man has been rumoured to be heading towards the Spurs exit door for some time and has turned down the chance to sign a new deal. 

He intimated last summer that he was ready to ‘try something new’, though he was unable to secure a move away before the window closed.

After the match, Jose Mourinho said of his player: ‘He played very well, very professional, which is what I expect from him.

‘If his decision is to leave I think he has to leave with his head up, if he gives everything which is what he tries to do for the team.’

‘The Premier League is simply the most interesting’: Chelsea handed a boost in pursuit of Real Madrid target Timo Werner as he reveals desire to play in England

  • Chelsea are interested in Timo Werner after having their transfer ban reduced
  • Real Madrid are reportedly lining up a £68million move for him this summer
  • Werner has praised the Premier League but has not ruled out a switch to Spain
  • RB Leipzig star says he is not seeking a move in the January transfer window 

Chelsea appear to be in pole position to sign RB Leipzig hitman Timo Werner after he admitted that he wants to test himself in the Premier League.

The Germany international has attracted interest from a host of Europe’s top clubs after firing Leipzig to the top of the Bundesliga with 18 goals this season.

And although Spanish giants Real Madrid are among those reportedly considering a move for him, Werner looks to have his sights set on a switch to England.

Chelsea are particularly keen on the striker after having their transfer ban reduced, and Werner told German newspaper Bild: ‘The Premier League is certainly the most interesting league, you have to say.

‘There is a certain flair to watching the English league and playing there.’

However, with Real also being linked with a £68million move for Werner this summer, the 23-year-old was quick to not rule out a potential switch to La Liga. 

He added: ‘But many Germans have also been very successful in Spain, such as Sami Khedira and Mesut Ozil.’

Leipzig are unlikely to be willing to cash in on Werner this month as they look to win their first ever Bundesliga title.

And fortunately for them, the former Stuttgart star says he is ‘not worried’ about securing a move away in January. 

‘As of now I have no desire to look for a move elsewhere,’ he said.

Champions League could add ANOTHER group stage as European football chiefs ‘near agreement to add four more rounds of fixtures’ with top clubs quitting the Carabao Cup to make room for more matches

  • UEFA and the European Clubs’ Association want to add Champions League ties
  • They are close to an agreement to include four extra matchdays from 2024-25
  • Group stage could be expanded or they may look to add a second one later on
  • Plans are likely to cause problems due to England’s packed football schedule
  • Champions League teams may be forced to give up playing in the Carabao Cup  

Teams competing in the Champions League will have to play four extra matches from 2024 as European football chiefs close in on an agreement to revamp the tournament, according to The Times.

A new report claims that the European Clubs’ Association (ECA) and senior figures at UEFA want to expand the competition, which could cause chaos for England’s already-packed schedule.

Although it has not been confirmed how the four extra matchdays will be squeezed in, it is said that the group stage of the competition will either be changed or another one added before the knockout rounds begin.

Liverpool played 13 games on their way to winning the Champions League final last season

The ECA had originally hoped to add 10 extra fixtures to the Champions League in order to increase games played between European football’s biggest clubs.

But it is claimed that they are satisfied by the new proposal of four matches, even though it could cause a major problem for Premier League clubs.

The Times report that the Carabao Cup could become a competition exclusively for sides not competing in the top tier of European football as a result.

Raheem Sterling and Manchester City could be forced to quit the Carabao Cup from 2024-25

Raheem Sterling and Manchester City could be forced to quit the Carabao Cup from 2024-25

The controversial plan, which has been consistently opposed by the Premier League, would mean that the finalists of the competition play 17 matches rather 13.

However, the new format is likely to appeal to the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City and the rest of the ‘Big Six’ as more Champions League fixtures will lead to increased revenues.

There is potential for UEFA to introduce eight groups of six teams rather than four, or six groups of six teams, in order to add the four extra games to the schedule.

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin is keen to add more fixtures to the Champions League

An alternative would be to add an extra group stage, potentially with the eight quarter-finalists being split into two groups of four, with the top two progressing to the semi-finals.  

As part of the new plan, clubs who reach the last four of the competition would automatically qualify for the following season’s group stage regardless of their league position. 

It is also claimed that UEFA want to prevent any move from Real Madrid and FIFA to set up a World Super League, with extra European fixtures likely to help appease them.

  • Marcus Rashford and Tammy Abraham have been in fine form this season

  • Upcoming English stars have produced the goods this campaign in front of goal

Marcus Rashford and Tammy Abraham have shown the future is bright for England by leading the goalscoring charts for Under-23 players across Europe’s top five leagues.

Rashford currently sits top with 14 goals for Manchester United, while his England team-mate Abraham has 13 to his name as he continues to impressively lead the line for Chelsea.

The Three Lions duo have both scored more goals than Kylian Mbappe – who is tipped as a future Ballon d’Or winner when Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo’s dominance dies down.

Meanwhile, Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez and the lesser-known Victor Osimhen of Lille have also delivered the goods this term.

Martinez, who is hoping to fire Inter to their first Serie A title since 2010, and Osimhen both have 10 goals – sitting joint-fourth in the U23 charts.

RB Leipzig 3-1 Union Berlin: Timo Werner moves above Robert Lewandowski at the top of the Bundesliga goalscoring charts with a brace as leaders come from behind to go five points clear at the summit

  • Union Berlin’s Marius Bulter gave the visitors a shock lead early on in the match
  • Timo Werner got the Bundesliga leaders back on level terms having gone behind 
  • RB Leipzig’s Marcel Sabitzer scores their second goal to move points clear

Leipzig overcame more protests and a one-goal deficit to stretch its lead at the top with a 3-1 win at home over Union Berlin.

Union fans held a mock funeral march and erected a shrine before the game, displaying crosses and a large banner saying ‘Soccer is dying in Leipzig.’ 

The supporters stayed away from their seats before kickoff and remained silent for the first 15 minutes of the game in protest against the home side, which has been unpopular since its formation in 2009 through energy drinks manufacturer Red Bull.

The Union fans couldn’t help breaking their silence in the 10th when Marius Bulter fired the visitors into an unexpected lead.

But Timo Werner scored twice in the second half as Leipzig came from behind to move five points clear of second-place Borussia Monchengladbach.

Werner’s brace took him to 20 league goals for the season.

This meant he leapfrogged Robert Lewandowski who plays against Hertha Berlin with Bayern Munich on Sunday. 

Hansi Flick’s side are seven points off Leipzig with a game in hand.
