German international Loris Karius reacts to most of the attention he’s getting from females in Turkey as he was ascribed a new nickname ‘Casanova’
Karius Joined Besiktas on a season-long loan deal from Liverpool which would later be permanent after two years.
The German goalkeeper had been with the Reds for two years before he was replaced by the Brazilian shot-stopper Alisson.
Karius was known for his errors in the 3:1 Champions League defeat to Real Madrid as he had wanted to correct his mistakes but he kept on making errors which gave the fans much to talk about in several matches.
After falling under Allison in Klopp’s pecking order he turned to Turkish football club when he featured in what the fans would regard as not so brightly debut for Besiktas in a 1-1 draw against Bursaspor.
However, Karius claimed that each time he goes out he normally sees people around who wants to take pictures with him.
And he is loving his stay in Turkey and ladies has become attracted to him often times.
“I did not have this many fans in England and I can say most seem to be female,” said Karius.
Karius also added:
“Whenever I am out and about in Istanbul whoever recognizes me wants a photograph.”
The 25-year-old will continue his first choice role as he returns to pick his gloves ahead of weekend clash.
Arsenal Scout Italian Midfielder In Win Over Finland
Arsenal scouts were reportedly in attendance to watch Nicolo Barella in action during the UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying match between Italy and Finland.
Nicolo Barella plays his club football for Italian Serie A club Cagliari at the moment.
According to the report from popular transfer news portal Metro, Arsenal are interested in a move for Nicolo Barella ahead of this summer’s transfer window and they sent scouts to watch him play for the Italian national team against Finland.
Nicolo Barella produced a fine display for Italy as they recorded their first win of the Euro 2020 qualifiers via a 2-0 win over Finland.
The watching Arsenal scouts would have been delighted with his performance in the Euro 2020 qualifier played on Saturday night.
Nicolo Barella gave Italy an early lead in the seventh minute before Juventus youngster Moise Kean added a second goal for the Italians in the 74th minute.
The win was enough to take Italy to joint top in Group J alongside 2004 champions Greece who also won 2-0 against Lichtenstein.
Arsenal are not the only club interested in the 22-year-old Barella.
The Italian Serie A duo of Napoli and Inter Milan are also interested in the young midfielder.
Recent reports claim that it would take at least £43m to prise him away from Cagliari.
Arsenal Face Premier League Competition For Ligue 1 Star
2006 Champions League finalists Arsenal will have to see off competition from two Premier League clubs in the bid to sign Guingamp attacker Marcus Thuram when the transfer window reopens in the summer.
This is according to the specific report from French media outlet Le 10 Sport which revealed that the three clubs are monitoring his situation at Guingamp who are battling to retain their status in the top flight of French football.
Marcus Thuram is the son of French football legend Lilian Thuram.
Lilian Thuram played with distinction for clubs like Italian Serie A giants Juventus and Spanish champions Barcelona.
He sealed his legendary status in French football when the ex-French right-back played a big role in the France team that won the 1998 World Cup tournament on home soil.
Lilian Thuram played his best game for France in the semifinals of that tournament.
He scored two goals as host France came from behind to beat Croatia 2-1 in their semifinal clash.
France went on to stun the then world champions Brazil 3-0 courtesy goals from Zinedine Zidane (2) and Emmanuel Petite.
Arsenal need a new forward/winger ahead of next season and Marcus Thuram could be an option for the Gunners who have to fight off the interest of rivals like Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.
Arsenal Plotting Free Transfer Move For 22-Year-Old Midfielder
Premier League giants Arsenal are plotting a free transfer move for one of the best players in the third tier of English football according to widespread reports emanating from the media in the United Kingdom.
The Daily Mirror claimed that the Gunners have an interest in Charlton Athletic midfielder Joe Aribo.
It was revealed that his contract will expire at the end of this season and that the player has already turned down the offer of an extension from the English League One club.
Charlton offered him half of his current wages for the new contract offered to him and it was understandably rejected by the young midfielder.
Joe Aribo is not only attracting interest from North London.
Portuguese giants Benfica and German Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt are also said to be keen on a free transfer move for him as confirmed by the aforementioned publication.
Joe Aribo has scored six goals and also provided two assists for Charlton Athletic in 26 League One appearances as the London club chase promotion to the English Championship at the end of this campaign.
He could be the unpopular choice to replace Aaron Ramsey at Arsenal though the Gunners will have to pay a compensation fee for him because of his age.
Ramsey is expected to leave Arsenal for Juventus on a free transfer this summer having already signed a pre-contract contract with the Old Lady.
Ferdinand Drums Up England Call-up For Arsenal Loanee
Manchester United legend believes that Arsenal winger Reiss Nelson is one of the players to make the step up from the England junior team to the senior team.
In a chat with The Sun, the former Manchester United defender revealed that the duo of Reiss Nelson and Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden will soon break into the England squad.
He was speaking on the back of the England debut handed to Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi against Czech Republic on Friday night.
Callum Hudson-Odoi impressed during a second half cameo having come on as a substitute for hat-trick hero Raheem Sterling.
The young Blues winger was involved in the fifth and last goal scored against Czech Republic.
Chelsea loanee Tomas Kalas put through his own net to wrap up a convincing 5-0 win for the hosts.
Manchester City star Raheem Sterling was the hero for the England team after his three goals against Czech Republic made him the first player to score three goals in a match for both club and country since Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer achieved the feat in 1999.
Arsenal player Reiss Nelson would be hoping to emulate the likes of Sterling and Hudson-Odoi by playing for England.
He’s presently on loan at German Bundesliga club TSG Hoffenheim until this summer.
Man Utd Target Told To Learn Showboating Lessons From Ronaldo
Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho has been told to learn showboating lessons from Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
In a chat with the Daily Mail, Arsenal legend Martin Keown asked the Manchester United target to learn showboating lessons from the former Red Devils player to know when to showboat on the football pitch.
Jadon Sancho came in for criticism from some section of the media for his showboating skills during the Euro 2020 qualifier against Czech Republic.
It was deemed as excessive against the Czech team as Sancho and England ran riot.
England thrashed Czech Republic 5-0 at the Wembley Stadium to start their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign with a win.
Jadon Sancho was one of the stars of the game which was undoubtedly dominated by Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling.
The 24-year-old scored a hattrick to give the Three Lions of England a dominant win over the Czech team.
Jadon Sancho provided the first of the three goals scored by Sterling who became the first England player to score a treble for both club and country within the same month.
The former Liverpool player had earlier scored a treble for Manchester City in their Premier League clash with Watford at the Etihad Stadium.
Manchester won 3-1 to keep up their chase for the Premier League title.
Dortmund Dismiss Rumoured Man Utd Move For Sancho
German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund have dismissed widespread transfer reports linking one of their players with a move to the Premier League.
England international Jadon Sancho has been in superb form for Borussia Dortmund this season and he has been linked with a move to Premier League clubs like Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United.
Borussia Dortmund had previously dismissed the transfer rumours linking Jadon Sancho with a move away from the club.
For the second time, the German Bundesliga giants have debunked these transfer rumours.
Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc dispelled those transfer rumours for the first time some weeks ago and he has done that for the second time in an interview with German newspaper Sports Bild.
He told the media outlet that there’s nothing like a Manchester United transfer for Jadon Sancho.
English winger Sancho joined German club Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2017 from Premier League champions Manchester City and he has grown to become a key player for his club.
Jadon Sancho has increasingly become a key player for both club and country in the last few months.
He provided an assist for the Three Lions of England during their Euro 2020 qualifier against Czech Republic which ended in a 5-0 win for the 1966 world champions.
Chelsea finally get good news on transfer ban
English Premier League outfit Chelsea will now breath fresh air as they have been told that their appeal for the transfer ban would be heard by the world football governing body on April 11.
This means that the West London outfit have got a chance to engage in this coming summer transfer window should they succeed in the appeal.
It would be recalled that the West London outfit were handed ban, not to engage in the next two transfer window after they were found guilty of international transfer and registration of players under the age of 18.
As soon as the judgment was passed, the Blues’ management in their reaction vowed to appeal the ban and this could be the time for them to be heard by FIFA.
This brings hope that the ban could be listed fully or it could be reduced, depending on their argument and the evidence they have to tender.
It has therefore been hinted that the West London outfit will not give up even if they lose in the appeal as they will proceed to the Court of Arbitration for Sports to make their case.
However, it is suggested that the transfer ban will in many ways determine the fate of the club in next season’s competitions.
How Liverpool will win the league, biggest prediction made
A former Liverpool player John Aldridge is of the opinion that his former side will end up winning the English Premier League title but that will not happen without them losing some points before the end of the season.
The Merseyside outfit are currently top in the Premier League table with two points clear of second-placed Man City with about 7 games left until the end of the season but the Citizens have a game at hand.
After finishing second last season in the Premier League, the Jurgen Klopp side are keen to win the title this season and they have been able to keep up the fight until now.
John Aldridge, therefore, stated that his former side are not convincing that they will win every game until the end of the season but noted that the Pep Guardiola can be uncertain especially with their performance at Swansea in the FA Cup.
He has therefore stressed that the Reds team have got all it takes with the defence and the firing attack to make the difference.
However, the Merseyside outfit have not won a domestic title in 29 years which is the reason why they are desperate to make history by breaking the deadlock.
Kante gives perfect reply to Chelsea exit talks
France international N’Golo Kante has reacted to claims that he would be leaving the West London outfit Chelsea to join Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid.
It is claimed that the former Leicester City star is unhappy at the Stamford Bridge under Maurizio Sarri because of the decision to shift him to a more advanced role in the midfield, different from his natural role.
When asked if he would jump at any offer from the Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid, he refused to be linked with the speculations as he made it clear that he is a Chelsea player and will not want to be drawn into talks with other clubs.
He noted that he has targets at the West London outfit and will want to have it accomplished even before his move.
N’Golo Kante has made it clear that he has no issue with where he plays or not as he is happy and willing to play anywhere the manager wants him to be.
However, the Chelsea team have not been able to meet with their target and they are in the risk of missing out of the Champions League for the second year because of their inability to remain in the top-four.
“Frustrated” at lack of playing time, Christensen drops big transfer hint, Hazard future
Chelsea star Andreas Christensen who is frustrated at his lack of playing time at the Stamford Bridge has dropped a big hint on the transfer plans of the players at the club and his future as well.
Left to Andreas Christensen, he would have pushed for a move away from the club as he has not been favoured with playing time in the manager Maurizio Sarri team.
But the coming transfer window will be a no-go area for the West London outfit as they have been banned from the next two transfer window by the world football governing body FIFA because of an offence of involving deals of players under 18.
However, Andreas Christensen has revealed that the players have been told by the club that no one would be leaving, including Belgium international Eden Hazard because they will not be able to appeal the ruling against them.
This, therefore, means that Eden Hazard might not secure his dream move away from the Stamford Bridge at the end of the season to Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid.
However, it is unclear what the Belgium international would do as he could force his way out of the club against the wish of the management.
