Rivaldo champions Arsenal switch as Richarlison plans for summer move

#Rivaldo #champions #Arsenal #switch #Richarlison #plans #summer #move

Brazilian footballing legend Rivaldo has urged current international and Everton forward Richarlison to reconsider his stance on a possible move to Arsenal this summer.

Per reports in Football365, the former Ballon d’Or winner (1999) views Arsenal as a “good option” for Richarlison, who is set to push for a move away from Goodison Park this summer after informing boss Frank Lampard and the club brass of his intentions to seek greener pastures.

But for Rivaldo, the notion that Richarlison has turned his nose up at Arsenal – who are without Champions League football next season – should be a stance that is reconsidered.

“This could be a big summer for Richarlison and his compatriot Edu, who is the technical director at Arsenal, could be crucial in a potential move to the Gunners.”

“He looks set to leave Everton, with several big clubs interested, and Arsenal looks a good option for the forward. The Gunners have Edu as their director and, after working with Tite until 2019, the ex-Arsenal midfielder knows Richarlison very well from the Brazilian national team.”

“Joining a club that fights near the top of the Premier League could be important for Richarlison, after a tough season with Everton, in which he was crucial to saving the club from relegation. If he gets a big move, he will have a better chance of becoming a first choice forward for Brazil at the World Cup in Qatar.”

Richarlison, who scored 10-goals and added a further 5-assists while helping Everton successfully avoid a catastrophic drop down to the Championship, has initially parried away any possible move to Arsenal in favor of interest from the likes of Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, and Chelsea.


However, with Arsenal heavily in the hunt for a new leading number 9 at the Emirates Stadium under Mikel Arteta, first-choice minutes could be more readily attained in north London ahead of Paris or Madrid which could aid in his push to feature prominently for Tite as Brazil look to secure their sixth World Cup win this coming winter in Qatar.

Arsenal has already been linked with a host of possible summer options to lead the line next season in the vein of Victor Osimhen, compatriot Gabriel Jesus, former starlet Serge Gnabry, and Sassuolo standout Gianluca Scamacca.

But with Richarlison already acclimatized to Premier League football while Arsenal constitutes a considerable jump in profile, the Brazilian international could do well to heed the words of one of his country’s greatest ever players.

The Atlanta Hawks are sending forward Danilo Gallinari and three first-round picks to San Antonio for All-Star guard Dejounte Murray, ESPN reported Wednesday.

The Spurs get a 2023 protected first-round pick via Charlotte, first-round picks in 2025 and 2027, and swap of picks with Atlanta in 2026, per the report.

The Hawks add an All-Star player to the same backcourt as All-NBA guard Trae Young.

Murray, 25, had a breakout season in 2021-22 that resulted in his first All-Star nod. He averaged 21.1 points, 9.2 assists and 8.3 rebounds per game – all career bests – in 68 starts. He finished third in the NBA with 2.0 steals per game.

Murray was selected No. 29 overall in the 2016 draft by San Antonio. He averages 12.5 points and 6.0 rebounds per game in 320 career games (249 starts) for the Spurs. He missed the entire 2018-19 season with a torn ACL.

Gallinari, 33, averaged 11.7 points and 4.7 rebounds in 66 games (18 starts) for the Hawks last season. The Spurs will be his sixth team. He averages 15.6 points per game for his career.

Exclusive: West Ham and Newcastle set to fight it out for forward ‘one step away’ from Premier League move –




Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld

#West #Ham #Newcastle #set #fight #step #Premier #League #move

West Ham and Newcastle are set to go head-to-head for Villareal forward Arnaut Danjuma this summer, with a transfer for the Dutchman now a matter of days away, according to reports in Spain.

The Dutchman is a versatile forward, able to play on either flank or through the middle, and enjoyed a strong season under former Arsenal boss Unai Emery, netting 10 and grabbing 3 assists in 23 La Liga appearances last campaign.

And, he is thought to have a release clause in his current contract in Spain, which could see him depart for around £40m this summer, with Danjuma having previously spoken of having ‘unfinished business’ in England.

West Ham lead Newcastle

It seems as though the Hammers have stolen a march on Newcastle at present, though that could all change now that the Magpies have finalised a deal for compatriot Sven Botman.

They too need cover in the wide areas, having been scared off by the price placed upon the head of French talent Moussa Diaby this summer and keen to add quality in the final third.

While a fee with West Ham is close to being agreed, personal terms are yet to be discussed, leaving plenty of time for Eddie Howe and co, or even other clubs, to swoop in and take him away from David Moyes’s side if they wished to.

Exclusive: Raducanu slams 'joke' question after shock loss –




#Raducanu #slams #039joke039 #question #shock #loss

Under pressure? You must be joking.

Emma Raducanu, who won last year’s US Open at the age of 18, hasn’t gotten past the second round at a grand slam tournament since then.

That streak continued at Wimbledon, where she lost to Caroline Garcia of France 6-3, 6-3 on Centre Court.

“There’s no pressure. Like, why is there any pressure? I’m still 19. Like, it’s a joke. I literally won a slam,” the 19-year-old British player said. “Yes, I have had attention. But I’m a slam champion, so no one’s going to take that away from me. Yeah, if anything, the pressure is on those who haven’t done that.”

But whether or not the player herself believes there’s no pressure on her, there is a perception from some that she has struggled to adapt to life as a major winner.


“I was speaking to a few people that sort of suggested that after the success Raducanu had at the US Open, the world opened up to her,” Wally Masur said on Stan Sport’s Grand Slam Daily.

“A lot of endorsements, a lot of time spent advertising certain products – maybe just taken the eye off the ball a little bit on what’s really important, and just needs to get back on track with the training, and the focus, and dealing with all the off-court stuff.”

The 10th-seeded Raducanu has dealt with minor injuries recently, including a side strain that forced her to retire from a match at the Nottingham Open two weeks ago. She said she didn’t feel any pain but acknowledged being rusty after playing only “seven hours of tennis in a month.”

“To even compete with these girls at this level and win a round I think is a pretty good achievement,” she said.

Raducanu beat Alison Van Uytvanck 6-4, 6-4 in the first round — also in the main stadium — but ran into a player on a roll in the second round. Garcia, who has been ranked as high as No.4, extended her winning streak to seven matches, which includes the Bad Homburg title in Germany last week for her first tournament win in three years.

“I struggled to find a way through her today,” Raducanu said. “But it’s OK because coming into this I didn’t really have many expectations of myself. Playing on Centre Court again was, again, a really positive experience for me. So, yeah, I can take it going forwards.”

Forward is Flushing Meadows, where last September she went from qualifier to major champion by beating Canadian teenager Leylah Fernandez 6-4, 6-3 in the final.

Murray bows out in second round

“Going back to New York, it’s going to be cool because I have got a lot of experiences playing on big courts, playing with people in the stadium, playing with the spotlight on you,” Raducanu said.

“I don’t mind that. I mean, for me, everything is learning. I’m embracing every single moment that is thrown at me.”

In her grand slam debut at the All England Club last year, Raducanu reached the fourth round as a wild-card entry. She followed up her US Open title with second-round exits at the next two grand slam tournaments — the Australian Open and the French Open.

Raducanu had beaten Garcia in three sets at Indian Wells this year in their only other head-to-head match.

“Obviously I learn a little bit some stuff when I played against her in the US and tried to learn from my loss and makes things better,” the 28-year-old Frenchwoman said. “It was different surface today, so it’s very different.”


It’s also easier now to prepare for Raducanu, Garcia said, compared to a year ago when “pretty much no one knew her.”
