Inter Milan target Barcelona defender

first_img Read Also: Messi expresses heartbreak over Copa America postponement What’s curious is that MD say that their interest in the central defender is based on the idea that Milan Skriniar, their current defensive rock, would be going the other way to join Barcelona along with Martinez. That would mean two of the team’s best players moving in one go – it’s hard to imagine there’s any way Barcelona could afford that this summer, even if they do throw in Lenglet. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Barcelona’s attempt to sign Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez rumble on, with the Catalan club now attempting to finalise the deal before the end of July. https://www.instagram.com/p/CApzrmSiX5p/ Barca want to try and reduce the cost of the Argentine striker by including players in the deal, and thus far names like Junior Firpo and Arturo Vidal have come up, none of them sounding particularly tempting for an Antonio Conte team looking to improve and challenge again for the title. Mundo Deportivo today claim that there is one Blaugrana that has caught the Italian club’s eye however – Clement Lenglet.

Duckett out, Foakes, Crane in for England Lion’s Caribbean trip

first_img(CMC) – Ben Duckett has been omitted from the England Lions’ tour of the Caribbean next year, but Ben Foakes and Mason Crane, currently part of the Ashes squad, have been included in a strong touring party announced this week.The 23-year-old Duckett, a part of the current Ashes tour, was already suspended for an incident in a Perth bar a couple of weeks ago when he poured a drink over teammate Jimmy Anderson.The England and Wales Cricket Board confirmed Duckett had been overlooked because of the incident.Foakes, however, a right-hander who averages 41 in first class cricket and leg-spinner Crane, who has played two Twenty20 Internationals, are in the four-day squad but have been overlooked for the one-day matches.Both the red and white ball squads will be led by Keaton Jennings.“We have included two members of the Ashes tour squad, Ben Foakes and Mason Crane, for the four-day matches, with the possibility of either or both of them leaving the Lions tour early, if they are selected in the England squad for the two Tests in New Zealand in March and April,” said national selector James Whitaker.“We will be naming that squad in the new year, and the same goes for the squads for the North-South Series which will be played in Barbados at the end of the Lions tour – and is likely to include the players who have been selected for the one-day series against West Indies A.Meanwhile, the highly-regarded pair of Jamie Porter and Sam Curran have been named in both squads, while fast bowler Roby Roland-Jones, who played two Tests against West Indies last summer, has been included in the red ball squad only.Porter and Roland-Jones will be making comebacks from injury.“Jamie Porter and Toby Roland-Jones are all available again after injuries – Jamie and Toby after working exceptionally hard on the ECB’s Pace Programme over the last couple of months,” Whitaker said.“Sam Curran missed out on the Lions training camp in Australia but he has also been training hard, under the supervision of Surrey’s strength and conditioning coaches, before going out to play T20 cricket in New Zealand.’England Lions face West Indies in three four-day ‘Tests’ and three one-dayers from February to March 11 next year.SQUAD – Keaton Jennings (captain), Joe Clarke, Liam Livingstone, Sam Curran, Jamie Porter, Paul Coughlin, Saqib Mahmood, Nick Gubbins, Alex Davies, Haseeb Hameed, Dan Lawrence, Ben Foakes, Toby Roland-Jones, Jack Leach, Mason Crane, Josh Tongue, Sam Northeast, Liam Dawson, Dom Bess, Tom Helm, George Garton, Matt Parkinson.last_img read more


Women of Troy looking to make noise

first_imgAt this point in the season, it’s all about who has the hot hand.This unofficial law of March basketball bodes well for the Women of Troy. Currently riding a season-high six-game win streak, USC is liking its chances to make a deep run in this year’s Pac-12 tournament.“Everything is starting to click for us,” senior guard Briana Gilbreath said. “It’s all about putting it all together as one team, and hopefully we can keep that going.”Hitting their stride · Junior forward Christina Marinacci is averaging 8.8 points this season for (18-11) USC. The team has won six straight contests. – Chris Pham| Daily TrojanThough that sort of confidence is invaluable at any point in the season, it is almost a necessity during postseason play.One bad night and the Women of Troy know that their season could be over.“Our tournament started a few weeks ago,” Gilbreath said, alluding to the team’s mentality following a loss to Stanford that preceded its current win streak. “Right now, we’re trying to go win a championship, and we can’t afford to lose any games.”Thanks to its current streak, USC shot up the Pac-12 standings during the final month of the regular season. After the loss to Stanford dropped their conference record to 6-6, the Women of Troy caught fire thanks to contributions from numerous players, including junior forward Christina Marinacci, who is coming off a stellar performance this past weekend against the Washington schools. She was rewarded by being named Pac-12 Player of the Week.“You can really tell that [the team is playing well] by the way we practice,” Marinacci said. “Hopefully we’ll carry it into the next game, whether we get Oregon State or Washington State.”USC’s ascent to the top of the standings was rewarded with a first round bye, but the team hopes that the extra day’s rest does not affect its game.“For us, we need to just focus on what we’re doing,” Marinacci said. “I don’t think any other team can beat us, but we can definitely beat ourselves.”The key to USC’s success during its run has been defense. The Women of Troy have held opponents to under 60 points in four of the last five games.The Women of Troy will play Washington State, a team that finished 11th in the conference and won just five league games, entered the Pac-12 tournament having lost eight of its past nine games. The most recent of those losses was to USC on March 3.Tipoff for Thursday’s game is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. at the Galen Center.last_img read more

Wenger plays down Drogba speculation

first_imgArsene Wenger insists Arsenal are not about to offer Didier Drogba a route back to the Premier League.Drogba left Chelsea for Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua during the summer, but has since been linked with a number of English and European clubs. The 34-year-old Ivorian has reportedly been at the centre of a power struggle in Shanghai, with Arsenal, Liverpool and Real Madrid touted as possible destinations should he depart.However, if Drogba agreed to cancel his contract it is highly unlikely FIFA would sanction a move to another club as a player must be a free agent when the transfer window closes to qualify for a free transfer before January. The only exception is when a club goes out of business. Last March, Bolton signed Gregg Wylde from Rangers but as he agreed to rip up his deal with the beleaguered Scottish club, FIFA blocked him from playing for the Trotters until the start of this season.Wenger maintains the Gunners are not preparing to go back into the market for Drogba, who gave their defence so much trouble during his eight years at Stamford Bridge.“At the moment no. In my opinion he is not free. He has just left England. I don’t know about the situation because he came out with a completely different statement.“You hear he might go to Real Madrid – but then he says ‘I am staying in China’. Is it just because he wants to be paid off? I don’t know,” Wenger said. Wenger, meanwhile, remains hopeful Bacary Sagna will extend his stay at Arsenal. The France defender is currently close to a return from a broken leg suffered at the end of last season.He recently voiced his concerns in a French newspaper following the sales of captain Robin van Persie and midfielder Alex Song, as well as the desire to secure trophies like former team-mates Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri have done since joining Manchester City.The 29-year-old revealed, despite heading towards the final season of his current deal in 2013, discussions had not yet started on an extension. But Wenger is not concerned about the situation.“Bacary didn’t want to be negative, but you all know what you can do with any statement,” Wenger said. “It is important to understand what he wanted to stay. What he wanted to say was not exactly the spirit of the whole thing, but you have the freedom to say what you want in life.“It is also important you understand what people feel about the club and their job. It is always important to have good communication with them. With Sagna we want to extend his contract. He is 29, so his contract finishes when he is 31. So of course we can’t give him five years. “We lost players until now, but the situation is changing and will be in favour of Arsenal much more because of financial fair play. We will be in a very strong position.”last_img read more

Today’s MLB DFS Picks: Advice, strategy for Friday’s DraftKings, FanDuel daily fantasy baseball contests

first_imgWatch ChangeUp, a new MLB live whip-around show on DAZN Editor’s Note: This is a FREE preview of Fantasy Alarm’s MLB DFS Playbook. For full analysis every day and more ways to dominate your daily fantasy baseball competition, check out DFS site-specific advice and the rest of Fantasy Alarm’s great season-long and DFS tools available to subscribers.MORE: Fantasy Alarm PRO toolsToday’s MLB DFS Picks: DraftKings, FanDuel advice for Friday, April 26Miles Mikolas, Cardinals vs. Reds. Mikolas, aka the Lizard King, has allowed three or fewer earned runs in four of his five starts this season and makes a living on his 49-percent ground-ball rate. He’s not a big strikeout pitcher by any means (17.3 percent), but a 3.9-percent walk rate always helps him limit the potential damage. Up against the Reds, who have 25-percent strikeout rate vs RHP, he should hit the upper end of his strikeout potential tonight.Jason Castro, Twins vs. Orioles. Castro should slot into the starting lineup tonight for the Twins since he will have the platoon advantage against Alex Cobb, who allowed a .330 wOBA and 1.15 HR/9 to lefthanded hitters last season. He’s great salary relief on a loaded slate.MORE: Friday DK Lineup | Friday SP rankingsJustin Smoak, 1B, Blue Jays vs. A’s. Do you want any of this Smoak? Well, you should in a matchup like this. The Blue Jays come in with an implied run total at 4.46. Smoak is up against Mike Fiers, who allowed a .305 wOBA to lefties last season along with 1.52 HR/9. Smoak had a massive .257 ISO vs RHP last year, putting him on home run watch tonight.Kolten Wong, 2B, Cardinals vs. Reds. Wong and the Cardinals are going to be one of the most popular teams on the slate since they have a high implied run total at 4.59 and are facing a struggling pitcher. That pitcher is Anthony DeSclafani, who couldn’t get lefties out last year with a .385 wOBA and 2.58 HR/9, and it’s much of the same for him this season. Wong had a .328 wOBA and a .159 ISO last season vs. RHP and is priced a bit better on FD tonight.Cole Tucker, SS, Pirates @ Dodgers. Tucker is an exciting young player for the Pirates who has hits in five of his six game this season. He is a very cheat tournament-only options tonight vs Hyun-Jin Ryu, who is allowing a sneaky bad 36-percent hard contact rate to righthanded hitters this season.Vladimir Guerrero Jr., 3B, Blue Jays vs. A’s. Today is the THE DAY. Vladdy Jr. is here and making his MLB Debut. Take all the hype out of it, he had a .227 ISO last season in Triple-A and is baseball’s top prospect. The ownership will certainly be there since the Blue Jays are in good spot overall, so know that going in. Happy Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Day! Baseball’s top prospect will be making his major league debut tonight against the A’s, and you can bet he’ll be in plenty of DraftKings and FanDuel lineups tonight. It’s a 15-game MLB DFS main slate (though a few games will be dealing with rain), so the options, both sleepers and studs, are seemingly limitless.The two games most threatened by weather are Rays-Red Sox and Brewers-Mets, but Padres-Nationals and Marlins-Phillies could also see delays. Make sure to consult the Fantasy Alarm Weather Center before lineup lock. Cody Bellinger, OF, Dodgers vs. Pirates. Bellinger is one of the best hitters in the league and comes in with three home runs in his past seven games. He always has massive tournament upside due to his multi-HR ability and being up against Chris Archer, who allowed a .345 wOBA and 1.56 HR/9 to lefties last season.For more player recommendations and analysis, become a Fantasy Alarm subscriber today!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Pos PlayerMatchupOpp. SPDKFDY!AnalysisSPJ.

Tour de France 2019: Thibaut Pinot wins 14th stage; Julian Alaphilippe increases lead

first_img Tour de France 2019: Julian Alaphilippe tightens yellow jersey grip with surprise time-trial win Alaphilippe passed another big test in the 73-mile ride from Tarbes to cross the line in second spot, stretching his advantage over defending champion Thomas by 36 seconds to 2:02.Alaphilippe claimed a surprise individual time-trial win Friday – the 100th anniversary of the yellow jersey – and made another statement to his rivals in the mountains. Related News 1. Tim Wellens (Lotto Soudal) 642. Thibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ) 423. Thomas De Gendt (Lotto Soudal) 37WHAT’S NEXT?The penultimate week will end with a 115-mile ride from Limoux to Prat d’Albis on Sunday. The climbers will come to the fore on a narrow, twisting final ascent of 7.3 miles. Alaphilippe stuck to Thomas’ wheel on the brutal final ascent of iconic Tourmalet – where he sealed the King of the Mountains title last year – and continued to press on after moving past Thomas in the final mile.Thomas looked weary as he lost time on a stage witnessed by French President Emmanuel Macron, but Steven Kruijswijk dug in to finish third and remain in the same position of the general classification standings. Egan Bernal, Thomas’ teammate, was fifth and trails Pinot by three minutes, while Alejandro Valverde, Nairo Quintana and Richie Porte struggled.Warren Barguil and Elie Gesbert attacked before being reeled in on the lung-busting final climb, and it was Pinot who emerged from a group of a dozen to take the win.Last kilometre – Col du Tourmalet Watch, listen, enjoy Regardez, écoutez, profitez #TDF2019 pic.twitter.com/APufObsVZP— Tour de France(@LeTour) July 20, 2019 STAGE RESULT1.
