Ignacio Scocco: Knows of Sunderland's interest

Scocco has been on loan in Argentina with Newell's Old Boys from Al Ain, and he has been in sensational form - finishing the season with 27 goals in 36 games.

Scocco, though, looks set to shun interest from Europe - including from Sunderland, and is set to extend his stay with Newell's.

"Sunderland are interested in Scocco, but they know Nacho's claims," said Scocco's agent Fabian Soldini.

"Nacho thinks that if he has to leave Newell's, where he is happy, he is going to do so to play in the Champions League.

"If there is not anything that is interesting, Ignacio will stay until the end of the year at the club (Newell's)."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
