Former Leeds star urges the club to get rid of this Victor Orta signing in summer - originally posted on Sportslens.com Former Leeds United star Paul Robinson has urged the club to get rid of Felix Wiedwald. The 27-year-old joined the Championship outfit from Werder Bremen last summer but he has failed to establish himself as the club’s number one keeper so far. The German is has been quite error prone this season and it was evident against Bristol City on Sunday evening. The fans will be frustrated with the situation as well and they will certainly back up Robinson’s comments (via HITC). Wiedwald failed to deal with Bristol’s long throw and that resulted in the opening goal. Furthermore, he decided to stay on his line for another throw which led to the second goal. Clea...

Fredericks will add some much-needed depth to West Ham’s full-back positions.

Manchester United’s Matteo Darmian may be set to leave the club as Juventus are reportedly interested in signing him and have made a serious move for him. The Italian has struggled to impose himself at Old Trafford and it appears he’s finally on his way out of the club under Jose Mourinho’s management. Darmian was brought in by Louis Van Gaal as he looked to address the United’s need for defensive reinforcements, particularly at a time when Antonio Valencia was still struggling with adjusting to the full-back position. Fans knew they weren’t getting the most attacking right-back in the world but were pleased to finally have a capable defender in their team. However, the former Torino man failed to impress even in that regard and Mourinho is aiming to overhaul...

Roundup: Wenger confident of signing defender; Arsenal willing to pay £45m for attacker - originally posted on Sportslens.com Arsenal are looking to seal a double deal for Nabil Fekir and Jonny Evans at the end of this season. The Gunners are hoping to add more creative spark to their midfield and the Lyon star Nabil Fekir could be a cracking addition. Apparently, he is a priority target for Wenger. The Ligue 1 midfielder is one of the most talented players around Europe right now and he could be the ideal replacement for Santi Cazorla at Arsenal. The Spaniard has been sidelined for a while and he is unlikely to return to his best again. As per the reports, Fekir is a key player for Lyon and therefore Wenger is prepared to break the bank in order to land the playmaker. Arsenal are willing

Former player says this signing is the reason behind Man Utd star's frustrations - originally posted on Sportslens.com Former Manchester United player Paul Ince has revealed that the arrival of Alexis Sanchez has affected Paul Pogba’s morale. Apparently, the French midfielder was the main man at the club before Sanchez joined but things are different now. Ince said: “Since Sanchez joined the club, Pogba’s confidence and mood seems to have gone in the opposite direction to earlier in the season. He looks like a totally different player. It’s probably due to the fact, that pre-Sanchez, he was the main man. He was the kingpin and the one everyone was talking about. But the arrival of Sanchez has taken the shine off him. What I would say is, at United, you’re all...

Arsenal and Arsene Wenger are reportedly interested in signing Manchester United’s Chris Smalling after Jose Mourinho lost his patience with the player. The Englishman has come under fire recently after his performances, particularly the one that helped Newcastle beat the club 1-0.

Now Wenger is apparently keeping an eye on the defender’s situation in an effort to make a move for him in the summer transfer window. According to Arsenal Mania, the Gunners are favourites to sign Chris after Jose reporte...
