£20m for PL ace, move for Arsenal reject considered and more Chelsea rumours

first_img 8 Emmanuel Adebayor: Chelsea to gamble on free agent not wanted by Arsenal, Tottenham, Man City and Real Madrid? – If Mourinho is after a short-term option in attack, then ex-Arsenal and Spurs striker Emmanuel Adebayor might be the perfect answer. The 31-year-old is a free agent and would guarantee goals if given the service. Discussing options available to the Blues, the Guardian suggests Adebayor could be considered in a bid to bolster Mourinho’s options until the end of the season. Chelsea’s season has been a disater so far and Jose Mourinho is reportedly ready to spend big in January in order to save their campaign.A new striker seems to be the priorty for the Blues, who have struggled in front of goal, and there are some surprising names linked with a mid-season switch, including a man who has enraged every supporter he has played in front of.Here, talkSPORT looks at the latest rumours, which are growing stronger with just over a month to go before the window opens. 8 8 8 Robin van Persie: Another short term fix for Mourinho? – Chelsea’s gamble on Radamel Falcao seems to have failed, so could they turn to his ex-Manchester United strike partner? Van Persie has struggled since moving to Turkey and much like with Adebayor, the Guardian report a loan move in January is an option the club may keep in mind. 8 Vincent Koziello: Nice ace coveted by both Arsenal and Chelsea – We all love a battle between Jose Mourinho and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and we might have one here in the battle for 20-year-old midfielder Koziello, one of the hottest young players in Europe. With neat feet, a sharp turn of pace and an eye for a pass, he might suit Arsenal more than Chelsea. But Spanish website TMW (Todo Mercado Web) says Mourinho is keeping a close eye on his development. 8 8 Harry Kane: Chelsea to take Tottenham Hotspur goal machine? – After a quiet start to the season Harry Kane has found his feet and Spurs are reaping the rewards. Nine goals in eight games has fuelled rumours that Chelsea are preparing a big bid and the Mail claims the Blues will go all out to sign him next summer. Manager Mauricio Pochettino may insist his star striker wants to stay in north London, however, don’t rule out a January bid just yet! The 22-year-old won’t be cheap, but his form suggests he would be worth every penny. Jamie Vardy: Leicester City – click the yellow arrow above, right, to see more Chelsea transfer rumours – Vardy has taken the Premier League by storm this season and could score for the 11th game in a row when Leicester play Manchester United on 29 November. His blistering pace, ice cool finishing and unshakable self-belief would make him an asset to any team, and the Mirror claim that Stamford Bridge boss Jose Mourinho is considering a £20m move. Nikola Kalinic: Serie A hotshot to be looked at – Kalinic, as some of you might remember, has been in the Premier League before with Blackburn Rovers. Now at Italian side Fiorentina, he is one of the in-form strikers in Serie A having scored 10 goals in nine matches. Gazzetta dello Sport believes Chelsea are watching with interest and a winter move could be on the cards. Mousa Dembele: Tottenham Hotspur man to fix Chelsea’s midfield? – There might be a lack of goals at Chelsea right now, but that doesn’t mean they are only linked with strikers. Midfield has been another problem position for Mourinho and the Mirror reports they are preparing a £20m bid for Tottenham’s powerful Mousa Dembele in January. 8 Amadou Diawara: ‘Strong interest’ in the Bologna man – Chelsea have often deployed powerful central midfielders in the last decade, so it is no surprise to see them linked with Bologna’s Amadou Diawara. The 18-year-old has set tongues wagging in Italy with a string of fine displays and Europe’s big clubs are beginning to circle. His agent further fuelled the rumours by saying: “There is a strong interest of Chelsea.” Is a deal imminent?last_img read more

That day was today,” U.S. Marshal Stephen Monier said in a news release. Ed Brown, 65, and his wife, 67, have claimed the federal income tax is not legitimate. They were convicted of hiding $1.9 million of income between 1996 and 2003. Ed Brown repeatedly said that any attempts to arrest him would result in a violent confrontation. The home is on an isolated dirt road and includes a turret that offers a 360-degree view of the property and a driveway that is sometimes barricaded with sport utility vehicles. By Kathy McCormack THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CONCORD, N.H. – A couple convicted of tax evasion were arrested peacefully at their Plainfield home Thursday night after holing up at the fortresslike compound for months, the U.S. Marshals Service said. Ed and Elaine Brown were convicted on federal tax charges in January and refused to surrender to authorities when they were sentenced in April to five years and three months in prison. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

2 board choices for Hawthorne

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! With only one incumbent in the Nov. 6 Hawthorne school board election, voters have a chance to elect a board that may rise above the personal disputes of the past and get down to business. The candidates running for two board seats are Cristina Chiappe, who is seeking her third term; Eugene Krank, a businessman and physician with three children attending district schools; Alexandre Monteiro, a counselor and executive director of Moneta Gardens Improvement Inc., a nonprofit group that deals with health and human service needs; and parent Albert Sanchez. We feel voters should re-elect Chiappe, an adult school teacher who has the backing of the local teachers union. She authored the board’s “code of conduct” policy, which provides trustees with guidance on acceptable conduct during public meetings. Chiappe’s priorities include continuing the steady rise in standardized test scores, maintaining efforts to keep class sizes low and confronting the problem of soaring employee health-care costs in the district. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.We don’t have a strong opinion about who should fill the second board seat. Monteiro has a record of working to help needy families and creating health centers at school sites. Krank, who has served as a chess and basketball coach within the district, sees himself as a communicator with the diplomatic skills needed to work constructively with parents. He also advocates strengthening adult literacy as a way to help students. As a doctor, businessman and parent, Krank may bring some valuable perspectives to the board. On Election Day, we recommend that Hawthorne voters choose Cristina Chiappe and Eugene Krank.last_img read more

In my first under-21s game, I didn’t really feel that great. In the second I felt better and in the third I felt as though I was able to get through 90 minutes and have an impact on the game.“I spoke with the boss (Arsene Wenger) in the week, he felt the same and I travelled to Sunderland. It’s a big week for me in training, getting fitter and sharper. Hopefully next weekend I can get some more game time and go from there.“I’m not saying that I’m there yet, this is just another step on my way to full recovery. There’s a few games left and after that, hopefully I’ll go away with England to the Euros.
