Pedro Obiang: Has been linked with an English move

Reports suggest Manchester City are keen on the 20-year-old, while Chelsea and Tottenham have also been linked.

Napoli were thought to be chasing the youngster but his agent, Jose Miguel Gonzalez, has played down links with the Serie A club.

However, he has confirmed there is interest from English sides in Obiang, who is contracted at Sampdoria until 2017.

He told calciomercatoit: "There are only rumors about him.

"There was nothing with Napoli, we have not had any meetings and, as far as I know, Sampdoria have not received any concrete offers from any club.

"I know that many teams, including English ones, are interested in the player but he is very good in Genoa and he's happy.

"We have extended the contract for another season and now he has a four-year contract with Sampdoria.

"We'll see what happens in the summer."

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.
