Klinsmann, Lacazette, Man City


The Sunday People report the United States Soccer Federation will not prevent former Tottenham striker Jurgen Klinsmann from taking over the vacant England post. The 51-year-old German has the level of experience the job really requires and has more tactical nous than the inept Roy Hodgson. Germany general manager, Oliver Bierhoff, has suggested Klinsmann is already in discussions with the FA, although you would expect they are just sounding him out at the moment.
Arsenal have informed Italian champions Juventus that 27-year-old (28 in December) Alexis Sanchez is not for sale and have turned down a £37.55-million (€44m - AUS$64.23m - US$48.62m) bid for the Chilean international. Currently he is undergoing treatment for a swollen ankle after helping his country beat Argentina in the Copa America final to retain the trophy.

Lyon President Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has suggested Arsenal have not made a bid for 25-year-old Alexandre Lacazette and said he isn't for sale. Quite how believable that is is anyone's guess, it may simply be a ploy to try and push up his price, which is rather steep for a player who couldn't make the French squad for the European Championships. We are back to the definition of a bid and a verbal discussion.

Manchester City have been in the news for a while now with their interest in 26-year-old Brazilian right-back Bruno Peres from Torino .It is being reported that City have now made an bid of £19.63-million (€23m - AUS$33.57m - US$25.42m) according to the Spanish press who have been speculating over his future for a while. The British press put the figure lower figure.

Watford bid for him last month, Roma are very keen on him but are cash strapped. They have an ongoing problem at full-back and they are continually having to spend money to resolve it instead of developing their own. That puts a strain on finances and makes the bigger signings more difficult. They won't be able to compete with Manchester City and working with Pep Guardiola must be a big pull.
