Reds chase Fiorentina star

Published Add your comment

Mark Hughes and Martin O'Neill have emerged as the frontrunners this afternoon to succeed Steve Bruce as Sunderland manager.

Bruce was sacked yesterday by the club's American owner Ellis Short, who said a "simply unacceptable" run of results forced his hand.

Crystal Palace stunned Manchester United at Old Trafford last night, as they won 2-1 after extra time in the Carling Cup quarter final.

Crystal Palace manager Dougie Freedman was delighted with a "deserved" victory for his side - who will now face Cardiff City in the semi-finals.

Tottenham also suffered a surprise defeat at home - a 2-0 loss to PAOK that leaves them on the brink of elimination form the Europa League.

Transfer news

Tottenham are chasing Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka, who looks set to leave the Stamford Bridge club in January.

Lille striker Moussa Sow has expressed his desire to move to the Premier League, with Arsenal favourites to sign to him.

And finally, Liverpool are keen to sign Fiorentina defensive midfielder Ricardo Montolivo in a cut price deal in January.
