Arsenal consider Pato swoop

Published Add your comment

Fabio Capello has named his squad for England's upcoming international friendlies as the Three Lions continue their preparations for Euro 2012.

Daniel Sturridge, Jack Rodwell and Gabriel Agbonlahor all earned call ups after impressing with their recent form in the Barclays Premier League.

John Terry is selected despite allegations of racial abuse, with Joleon Lescott, Glen Johnson and Kyle Walker also called up in defence.

But there was no place for Rio Ferdinand, Andy Carrol or Wayne Rooney in the squad, with Capello set to experiment against Spain this Saturday.

Today's transfer news sees reports that Arsene Wenger is preparing a sensational bid for AC Milan striker Alexandre Pato.

Manchester City and Chelsea are said to be competing for the signature of Ajax and Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen.

And finally, Sir Alex Ferguson is targeting Athletic Bilbao’s Javi Martinez and Villarreal’s Bruno Soriano to strengthen his midfield.
