Liverpool target set for new release clause

  Liverpool target set for new release clause Liverpool target Faouzi Ghoulam could be set for a new contract at Napoli, with a release clause. According to Calcio Mercato, if Ghoulam signs a new deal with the Serie A club then he would have a release clause of up to €40m. Ghoulam’s current contract with Napoli expires at the end of the season, which is a concern for the Italian team. They are working hard to tie him down for the future, with Liverpool having the chance to sign him on a free next summer if they fail in doing so. The report claims that Juventus, Liverpool and Atletico Madrid are all eyeing up the left-back and are watching his contract situation very closely. Ghoulam has been impressing for Napoli in the Serie A this season, catching the eye of the three European giants. Liverpool signed Andrew Robertson from Hull in the summer, but are clearly still looking to strengthen their fullback position.

Defending Italian Open champion Francesco Molinari was among six players to shoot a seven-under round of 64 in Milan as the fifth Rolex Series event of the year got under way on Thursday.

Molinari recorded a brilliant 22-under for the tournament to win by a single stroke from Danny Willett a year ago and he is seeking a historic third title, having also triumphed in the 2006 edition.

The 34-year-old made a flying start with birdies at the first and second, but dropped shots at the third and eighth holes left Molinari two-under at the turn.

Former sporting director confirms United's interest in Mertens

  Former sporting director confirms United's interest in Mertens Napoli’s former sporting director Pierpaolo Marino has confirmed Manchester United are tracking Belgian forward, Dries Mertens. Marino told Italian newspaper Tuttosport, as cited by football.london, that the United are keeping tabs on the versatile attacker who has scored nine goals already this season. “The €28m clause is likely to be a low price even if he is 30. It turns out that United are following him very closely.” Mertens has a relatively low release clause in today’s market of €28 million, which converts to roughly £25 million. The Belgian impressed last season playing as a makeshift central striker due to injuries in the Napoli squad but has since made the position his own. He, alongside the likes of Lorenzo Insigne, have formed one of the most exciting attacks in European football at the moment. Mertens was linked with a move to Premier League champions Chelsea over the summer, with the player’s agent holding talks with the club, but no move materialised.

Fantasy golf headlines. Francesco Molinari defends the Italian Open . Hatton in command of Alfred Dunhill Links. Uihlein among notable MCs at Safeway Open . He's missed just one of his home Opens this century and collected 11 top 25s, with five top tens (including the pair of wins).

A flawless back nine featured birdies at four of his last five holes, including a superb chip-and-run at the last, to leave Molinari among the leading pack at his home event.

Kiradech Aphibarnrat went out in the first group of the day and set the low-scoring tone with a bogey-free 64, picking up three birdies in the first four holes and maintaining his fine form throughout the round.

The Thai has not won on the European Tour since 2015 but showed he could be a contender for the Italian crown with a typically aggressive display of strokeplay from the off.

Sweden's Alexander Bjork, Englishman Eddie Pepperell, Jamie Donaldson of Wales and late climber Matt Wallace also hit rounds of 64.

Arsenal considering swoop for Maksimovic

  Arsenal considering swoop for Maksimovic Arsenal are considering a move for Napoli central defender Nikola Maksimovic, according to Football Italia. The report claims that Arsenal have been scouting Maksimovic, presumably on international duty, and are tempted to make a move in January. Arsenal are not alone in their pursuit of the defender, though, as Italian side Inter Milan are also said to be monitoring his progress. Maksimovic could be free to leave Napoli in January, due to his bit-part involvement so far this season. He has made two appearances in all competitions so far, and struggled to retain a regular place in the side last season. The Serbian joined the club from Torino for €25m last summer but has failed to live up to his price tag as of yet. Arsenal will be hoping that they can secure a deal and bring out the best in the tall defender, if they can beat Inter to the punch.

Race to Dubai-leading trio Tommy Fleetwood, Sergio Garcia and Jon Rahm comprised the Italian Open's star group and while the Open de France winner could only record a level-par 72, both Spaniards are in the hunt after fine opening rounds.

Masters champion Garcia, who announced this week that he and his partner are expecting their first child, shot five-under and compatriot Rahm, number five in the world rankings, was a single shot back as the 22-year-old looks to follow up his star-making performance at July's Irish Open with a second Rolex Series success of the year.

British Masters winner Paul Dunne looked in good shape to join the leaders after stringing together four birdies on the spin during his back nine, but a dropped shot at the 16th leaves the Irishman three shots off the pace.

Tyrell Hatton is not faring as well after his victory at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship last week, however, shooting an uneven round that featured three bogeys in his two-under round of 70.
