Federico Fazio: Attracting interest from England, says his agent

The 26-year-old centre-back, who is out of contract at Sevilla next summer, has been linked with a move to Arsenal and Liverpool.

But according to his agent, Ariel Kiperszmid, his Premier League suitors could face competition for the 6ft 5in defender's signature from four Serie A clubs.

Kiperszmind says Sevilla turned down offers from Germany and Russia for Fazio in January and are expecting more at the end of the season.

"In January the club rejected offers from Germany and Russia but in the summer they could be looking at making millions of Euros," Kiperszmid told tuttomercatoweb.

"There are four Italian teams interested in him and Serie A could be a good destination for him, but there are also admirers in England.

"Fede could play for one of Europe's top teams."

Kiperszmind says the defender, who joined the Spanish club's B side in 2007, is eyeing a fresh challenge.

"His contract runs out in 2014 and we have spoken about extending it with Sevilla," added his agent.

"However, his future is probably away from Sevilla because he wants to experience something different."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
