Leonardo Ponzio: Impressive form for River Plate

The 30-year-old Argentina international midfielder has been in impressive form for River since returning to the club earlier this year from Real Zaragoza.

Ponzio has split the last nine years of his career between River and Zaragoza, spending two three-year stints in Spain with another two-year period back at the Estadio Monumental sandwiched in between.

Spurs are believed to have watched Ponzio in the derby clash with Boca in which he scored the equaliser in the 2-2 clash.

"I knew that some people came to watch me in the match against Boca and I think in another game too," said Ponzio.

"Nobody spoke with me about a possible transfer or real interest. Anyway, regarding my future, I am very comfortable where I am and I feel respect. I would like to take advantage of this moment."

Asked specifically about a possible move to England with Tottenham, he said: "What comes for my career from now on will be analysed. At my age I have to analyse everything with my family.

"It's not a year yet since I came back from Spain. Therefore, if an offer arrives, River and me will have to analyse it.

"I am at a good personal moment and I have to keep on going on in that way. I would like to have the chance to play for the national team again, so I have to keep on doing well at River."

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.
