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."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
