Umtiti offer

With about two hours to the close of the 2019 summer transfer window, Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti has reportedly rejected an offer from Arsenal to move to the English Premier League.

Arsenal are desperately looking to sign a defender to strengthen the team ahead of the 2019/2019 season which begins on Friday.

Emery also disclosed on Wednesday that the club will do everything possible to bring in a defender to the Emirates for the new season.

Sport reported that Arsenal made a move for the France international after the decision was made to sell Laurent Koscielny to Bordeaux.

Indeed, the Gunners made an offer of €58m for Umtiti this week.

Season over for Liverpool’s inspirational captain

Published

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson will play no further part in the champions’ bid for Premier League records with his knee injury ruling him out of the rest of the season.

Klopp confirmed that the skipper will not be able to feature again this campaign, but will not require surgery and should be fit again for next season.

He will also be there to lift the Premier League trophy against Chelsea on July 22 as the Reds finally end their 30-year wait to be crowned champions.

“Hendo is the best possible of all bad news: it is a knee injury but no surgery needed,” said Klopp. “He will not play any more in the latter stages of this season but I am pretty positive he will start with us the new season. It was an awful moment when he went down with injury. In Germany, we would call him an animal as he deals with pain so well.

“You saw he knew something happened which shouldn’t have happened. Everyone felt for him. It was a real mood killer.

“We were all concerned when we saw him going down and he left the pitch and when we got the news it was a big relief for all of us.

“It is not cool but it is the best we could get, Hendo is a quick healer and he will be back soon.

“But he deserves to lift the trophy and he will lift the trophy.”

Tiger Woods will make his first PGA Tour start since February at next week’s Memorial Tournament.

The 15-time major winner pulled out of the Players Championship in March with a back injury before the coronavirus shutdown.

Professional men’s golf in the US has resumed behind closed doors and Woods is set to resume his season in Ohio from 16-19 July.

“I’ve missed going out and competing with the guys,” said Woods, 44.

“I can’t wait to get back out there.”

Woods, who has won the Memorial Tournament five times, finished 68th in his last PGA Tour appearance at the Genesis Open in February.

Tiger Woods is aiming to defend the Masters title he won for a fifth time in 2019 when the rescheduled tournament takes place from 12-15 November at Augusta National.
