13 July 2017 – Here’s a round-up of all the hottest transfer rumours from today!

Mbappe to Arsenal?

An interesting report from France Football claims that Arsene Wenger met Monaco starlet Kylian Mbappe for approximately three hours on June 14, which is close to one month ago. Wenger allegedly spoke to Mbappe about Arsenal’s plans for the future and why London would be the perfect place for him to develop his career and potentially emulate the impact made by Thierry Henry. As of now, it’s difficult to see a conclusion to this saga, given that Real Madrid are also equally determined to make Mbappe their bumper signing of the summer. If anything, this report goes to show how Wenger is really willing to spend big and push for a Champions League return in 2018.

Olivier Giroud to Borussia Dortmund?

According to the Mirror, Olivier Giroud is being earmarked by Borussia Dortmund as an ideal replacement for the outgoing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Giroud’s first chances are a major doubt now, given that Arsenal signed Lacazette last week. But the Frenchman appears to be more than happy to stay and work hard for a first team role. That said, if Dortmund come knocking with the promise of a decent contract, first-team football, and the opportunity to play in the Champions League, it’s difficult to see Giroud saying no, isn’t it? The World Cup, after all, is happening next summer.

Ryan Bertrand to Manchester City?

Pep Guardiola, still reeling from the frustrations of missing out on Dani Alves, is reportedly prepared to make an offer for Southampton’s Ryan Bertrand. On paper, it’s difficult to compare both players, but Bertrand isn’t exactly a poor choice. He’s played in the Premier League for years and has been rather consistent in recent times too. The Saints are not keen on letting him go, but according to Daily Mail, an offer of around 30 million pounds could be more than enough to convince them.

Angel Correa to Liverpool?

It’s hard to imagine why Liverpool would need any more wingers but Foot Mercato claim that they’ve tabled a five-year offer for Atletico Madrid’s Angel Correa. This rumour is highly unlikely for two reasons. Atletico Madrid won’t be keen on letting anyone go until January, when their transfer ban is lifted. But more importantly, Liverpool have got plenty of options on the flanks, now that even Mohammed Salah has joined them. Having said that, there are no doubts over Correa’s quality as an attacker and he would certainly make Jurgen Klopp’s side a better one.

Riyad Mahrez to AS Roma?

Just over a year ago, Riyad Mahrez was easily one of the most wanted players in Europe, but he has now resigned to fact that a Premier League offer is very unlikely at this juncture. But according to Sky Sport Italia, Serie A giants AS Roma are prepared to offer him an escape route from Leicester City at this juncture. Craig Shakespeare recently urged Mahrez to be a professional should no offer come in, but even he’d know that there’s very little point in trying to keep a player who wants to leave. If a decent offer comes in, expect Leicester to take the deal.

Kedah FA have publicly released a statement to clarify their decision to reject Media Prima’s request of providing live telecast for the Super League clash between Kedah and Selangor this weekend.

Speaking through a statement that was released on their Facebook page, Kedah FA’s Dato’ Aminuddin Omar said: “KFA feels that it’s inappropriate for a team to receive live telecast of three consecutive live matches. For the record, two of our last home games – against Perak FA on the 1st of July and against Melaka United on the 4th of July – have been shown live on TV.

“We are thankful that Media Prima are consistently choosing us and it’s an honour that the official broadcasters themselves are focusing on our form, when it comes to deciding which games are shown live on TV. But the decision has to be made based on a win-win situation for the good of every stakeholder. In fact, there are still Super League teams whose matches have not been shown live on TV yet.

“We are incredibly thankful to all Kedah fans for their continuous support for the team, especially at the Darul Aman Stadium. The sacrifice of each fan will undoubtedly be our main source of motivation to push harder for excellence this season. We believe that fan support plays a huge role in making Malaysian football incredibly lively,” he added.

Pihak KFA amat berterima kasih buat semua penyokong hijaukuning yang berterusan menyokong pasukan di semua gelanggang terutamanya di Stadium Darulaman dan pengorbanan setiap penyokong akan menjadi azimat pasukan untuk terus beraksi cemerlang pada musim ini. KFA percaya sokongan melalui pelbagai cara adalah faktor utama kemeriahan Liga Malaysia terutamanya di bumi jelapang padi.

The news first broke on social media earlier today, through the initial version claimed that Kedah’s decision to reject Media Prima’s offer was premised upon dwindling attendance at the Darul Aman Stadium.

Selepas meninggalkan Melaka United, nampaknya Ilija Spasojevic menjadi rebutan kelab-kelab Indonesia.

Bekas penyerang Persib Bandung itu nampaknya mula dirisik oleh kelab musuh ketat mereka, Persija Jakarta.

Terbaru, kelab yang berpengkalan di Jakarta itu telah menjemput Spaso untuk memperkuat pasukan mereka untuk perlawanan persahabatan menentang kelab La Liga, Espanyol.

Pengurus Besar Persija, Gede Widiade dilaporkan telah menjemput pemain Montenegro itu.

Dalam kenyataan Gede seperti yang dilaporkan oleh Kompas.com: “ Saya telah menjemput Spasojevic untuk perlawanan tersebut. Saya akan melihat bagaimana aksi Spasojevic dalam perlawanan menentang Espanyol.”

Persija sememangnya telah merancang untuk menjemput pemain luar untuk beraksi bersama kelab yang terkenal gelaran Macan Kemayoran itu bagi perlawanan berdepan Espanyol.

Namun, perkembangan terbaru menyaksikan Spaso telah menolak undangan tersebut ekoran masalah keluarga.

“Saya menghormati Pak Gede dan mengucapkan terima kasih kerana menjemput saya untuk bermain bersama Persija untuk menentang Espanyol.

“Malangnya pada hari tersebut saya tidak dapat bermain kerana ada urusan keluarga.”

At only 14 years of age, Aaliyah Yoong Hanifah is already out making waves as Malaysia’s prominent national waterskier.

Aaliyah, who made the top 20 world ranking for the Under-17 category in the International Waterski & Wakeboard Federation (IWWF) last year, is determined to bag two gold medals at the 2017 Kuala Lumpur SEA Games in August.

Her confidence is backed by her hard work and experience; Aaliyah successfully bagged two gold medals at the 2015 SEA Games in Singapore, and she has been diligently training hard in Florida.

“I spent seven weeks training in Florida, and I think the training has really helped to improve my performance.” Aaliyah told BHarian.

“I have been working hard on my jump technique. I feel more confident now for the jump and slalom events. I have also achieved new personal bests in both.” said the 14-year-old, who is aiming to bag nothing less than gold in the trick and overall women’s event.

Aaliyah admits that she has come a long way since winning her first gold in Palembang in 2011, especially since she didn’t have her expectations up at that time.

She was only 8 at the time, and was not aware of the degree of her success. She also became Asia’s 3rd ranked women trick skier that same year.

Now that she’s a consistent gold medalist, she feels more pressure to perform well, which is why she’s thankful that Malaysia is hosting the SEA Games.

“I think the fact that I’ll be competing at home takes away a bit of pressure. I’ll do my best.”

“There’s still a lot of time before the Games and a lot more training to be done. It’s important that I pace myself well and peak when it matters.” The Star quoted her as saying.

The 2017 KL SEA Games will be happening from 19th August until 31st August. Get your tickets here.

Dalam ramai-ramai pemain Asia yang berbakat, pastinya nama pemain UAE, Omar Abdulrahman tersenarai.

Melihat kepada aksi lincah Omar untuk kelabnya Al Ain dan UAE, ramai yang mahu melihat pemain ini beraksi di Eropah bersama kelab-kelab ternama.

Nama Omar telah dikaitkan dengan banyak kelab Eropah, tetapi nampaknya masih belum ada rezeki untuk melihat pemain berusia 25 tahun ini menukar haluannya ke Eropah.

Terbaru, Al Ain dilaporkan telah menolak tawaran kelab Ligue 1, Nice, untuk yang mahu mendapatkan Omar secara pinjaman.

Gambar surat permohonan yang dihantar oleh kelab Perancis itu kepada Al Ain tersebar luas di media sosial.

Dalam surat berkenaan, tertulis tawaran untuk mendapatkan Omar secara pinjaman dengan pilihan untuk membeli pemain tersebut. Mengikut tarikh yang tertera di surat itu, tertulis 27 Jun.

Walaupun laporan menyatakan bahawa Al Ain menolak tawaran berkenaan, media tempatan, The National, menyatakan bahawa satu perjanjian masih boleh berlaku ekoran penglibatan kelab Perancis itu dalam kancah Liga Juara-Juara musim hadapan.

Dipercayai pegawai dari Nice telah berangkat ke Garden City minggu ini untuk berbincang mengenai perpindahan Omar.

Pemain yang menggondol anugerah Pemain Terbaik Asia pada Disember lalu sebelum ini dilaporkan telah menarik minat banyak kelab di Eropah seperti Arsenal, Hamburg, Valencia dan Benfica.
