Arsenal and Tottenham target reveals he is ready to leave PSV

first_imgArsenal and Tottenham target Georginio Wijnaldum has revealed he is hungry to move abroad and further his career.The Dutch international is currently playing for PSV Eindhoven and has scored three goals in the Eredivisie this season.Wijnaldum caught the eye of several clubs in the summer, especially after he scored in the Netherlands’ 3-0 third-place play-off victory over Brazil at the World Cup, and the 23-year-old has admitted he would love to play elsewhere in Europe.“Next summer would be a great time to take the next step,” Wijnaldum told De Telegraaf.  “PSV also know that I am keen to play abroad, I am the age for it. Although I like it here, I do not want to become too old to go abroad, because I want to play there for a few years.“The more time I take in going, the shorter my career abroad becomes.”However the attacking midfielder ruled out any possibility of moving in January, instead committing himself to PSV’s title chase.“First I want to be champion with PSV, and I will fight for it,” Wijnaldum added.“If a club have been good to you and have always been there for you, I feel obliged to do me something in return for that club. I therefore do not wish to leave PSV straight away.” 1 Georginio Wijnaldum in action for PSV last_img read more

‘It’s too much money’ – Nicolas Otamendi is not worth the amount Manchester City are paying, talkSPORT told

first_imgtalkSPORT’s South American football expert Tim Vickery believes Argentine defender Nicolas Otamendi is not worth the money Manchester City are paying for him.Otamendi was tracked by Manchester United for much of the summer but has elected to move to the Etihad after City agreed a deal reportedly worth around £32m.However, Vickery thinks that is too much money to spend on the defender considering his distinct lack of pace.“It’s too much money, I think,” Vickery told Hawksbee and Jacobs. “He’s a classy centre-back but he’s not particularly quick.“In the 2010 World Cup, when Maradona was manager, he played Otamendi at right-back and there, you remember in the quarter-finals against Germany when Germany steamrollered them, they bombed down that side.“At centre-back it’s more compact with less space but at right-back there is a lot of space there and his lack of pace was exposed there.“I think he is a good centre-back, a classy centre-back and he had an excellent season with Valencia.“He’s quicker than (Martin) Demichelis, who has given better service to City than I thought he would, but it’s a lot of money to pay for a centre-back who is good but not express.”last_img read more
