Fabian Giefer: Thought to be attracting interest from several clubs

The 22-year-old goalkeeper, who has a year remaining on his contract at the Esprit Arena, is believed to be on the radar of a number of clubs, including Everton and Bundesliga side Schalke.

The Germany Under-21 international, a summer arrival at Dusseldorf from Bayer Leverkusen last year, has produced a string of impressive displays for the Rhine club this season.

Former Bundesliga top scorer Allofs, who is on the club's board, says any interested suitors would have to offer at least €5m (£4.2m) to pique Fortuna's interest.

He told the Rheinische Post newspaper: "If there is any serious interest in Fabian Giefer, any starting bid would need to be beyond €5m. Otherwise this is nothing of our concern.

"In the end we would always have to insist there is still a valid deal existing between Fabian Giefer and Fortuna Dusseldorf."

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

T

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.
