Jackson Martinez: Linked with a move to Serie A side Napoli

De Laurentiis took to Twitter to respond to speculation linking the Serie A side with a number of players around Europe, including Paris Saint-Germain's Marco Verratti.

De Laurentiis said: "We are a friend of Paris Saint-Germain and Verratti is not for sale.

"The player's agent is trying to put pressure on Paris Saint-Germain in order to gain a pay rise, but we do not go along with these games.

"We are searching for the right reinforcements in attack. It may be Martinez or it may be another. Our manager Rafael Benitez will decide."

Benitez has had a busy start to his reign as Napoli manager and has already lost star striker Edinson Cavani to PSG.

One player linked with replacing Cavani is Brazilian Leandro Damiao, but Internacional president Giovanni Luigi says that they have not received an official offer for the player.

Speaking with Radio Gaucha, Luigi said: "Leandro Damiao is focused. There has been no contact in the last days.

"They talked about Napoli, but nothing official has come."

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.
