    Silva to Lazio latest

    Last week’s report keeping David Silva in sky blue, albeit in another country, has been buttressed by Thursday news out of Italy.

    Sky Sports says Lazio is increasingly confident of bringing the living Man City legend to Rome.

    Silva is set to star in Friday’s UEFA Champions League second leg against Real Madrid, a result and three more wins from a European Cup to add to his World Cup, two EUROs, Copa del Rey, and 15 trophies with City.

    Lazio faded down the stretch after challenging Juventus for the scudetto for much of the 2019-20 season. The club has rumor mill mainstays Ciro Immobile and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic under contract as well as Luis Alberto and Joaquin Correa, the quartet combining for 58 goals and 30 assists.

    Silva’s not going to hurt that production, given six goals and 11 assists for Pep Guardiola this season.

    Leeds linked with defenders

    Marcelo Bielsa is readying his back line for the test of 19 other Premier League attacks, one with an eye for the future.

    Fulham teenager Cody Drameh and Rangers veteran left back Borna Barisic are being linked with a move to the Peacocks.

    Barisic, 27, has surged back into the Croatia set-up since arriving Glasgow from NK Osijek in 2018. He had two goals and 14 assists for Steven Gerrard last season.

    Drameh is just 19 and yet to make his first team debut for Scott Parker’s also-promoted Cottagers. An England U-18 right back, he registered seven assists in 17 PL2 appearances for Fulham last season.

    Hojbjerg to Tottenham, Walker-Peters to Southampton update

    There are 18 million reasons for Southampton to be okay with wantaway former captain Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg taking the next step in his career.

    That’s the transfer fee reportedly set for St. Mary’s as Spurs purchase the Danish midfielder.

    The Express says that Everton had a $33 million bid accepted for Hojbjerg but that Tottenham interest swayed the player.

    Spurs have also agreed a fee with Saints over Kyle Walker-Peters, who spent the second half of the 2019-20 season on loan to Southampton.

    For some reason, the clubs wanted the deals kept apart, though it’s difficult not to read them as basically a swap given Walker-Peters’ reported $15 million deal.
