Everton leading race for Ndiaye

  Everton leading race for Ndiaye Everton are in talks to sign Stoke City midfielder Badou Ndiaye, according Stoke on Trent live. Football Insider are reporting that Everton boss Marco Silva is keen sign a defensive midfielder this summer, with the Stoke City man one of his top transfer target. Ndiaye only arrived at Stoke from Galatasary on the final day of the January transfer window in a £14million deal but has been linked with a move away from the club this summer following their relegation from the Premier League. Galatasaray are believed to be keen on taking the Senegal international back to Turkey, but it looks likely that Galatasaray would only be interested in a loan-deal for the player. Newcastle United were also thought to be interested in the 27-year-old midfielder but Everton are now believed to be leading the race for his signature. Ndiaye featured 13 times for Stoke last season, netting two goals for The Potters. Ndiaye started in a pre-season friendly against Wolves last week and is under contract at the Bet 365 Stadium until 2022. However the 27-year-old does have a release clause in his contract, one which is substantially higher than the £14million fee that Stoke paid for him back in January. New Stoke City boss Gary Rowett has had his say on the transfer speculation surrounding Ndiaye. “We know he’s a top player and he will be coveted by a lot of teams across Europe, but he’s our player, he’s under contract with us and ultimately he remains our player. We’ll bring him back in, we’ll work with him.

Advertising campaign introducing # Lithuania n capital #Vilnius as " the G - Spot of Europe ", is the best for the international market

Playing off the idea of a G-spot — the mythically hard-to-find spot on the female body known to induce intense sexual pleasure — this new campaign aims to present the city as a travel destination for millennials and more.

Inga Romanovskienė, Director of Go Vilnius, the Vilnius Tourism and Business Development Agency, said in a press release yesterday, "When it comes to attracting the modern tourist we’re dealing with a very high level of competition with other European cities and countries investing heavily in destination marketing. The young creatives who came up with 'Vilnius; the G-spot of Europe' presented an extremely engaging idea to drive interest in the city."

Trends: Europe news Lithuania news.

The poster produced by two students referring to Lithuania ’s capital as Europe ’s G - spot really sums the city up: it is not where you thought it was. It is not in eastern Europe , not even in central Europe , but the capital of a Baltic state in northern Europe .

Some Lithuanian priests "expressed concerns that the ad used 'women’s sexuality for advertising' and gave 'wrong ideas' about Vilnius," in addition to previously requesting the campaign be postponed until after Pope Francis’ visit, according to the Associated Press.

Jurgis Ramanauskas, one of the student creators of the campaign, said in the press release, "Few people know where Vilnius really is, but when they arrive they fall in love with the city. This insight came from our conversations with international visitors, and we formulated the idea that Vilnius is synonymous with the G-spot theory — nobody knows where it is, but, when it is discovered, everyone is very pleased!"

While it’s unclear how this will play into the impending papal visit, Lithuanian Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis said to Lithuanian public broadcaster LRT on Tuesday, "I think it’s a strange advertising choice, but I believe it does not cross the line in a democratic country."

Guendouzi signed for the Gunners this summer from Lorient for a fee of £7m and has stated that it’s a “dream come true” for him to sign for the club that he supported as a boy. “It’s true there were a lot of clubs interested in me — I had talks with some of the biggest clubs in Europe but as soon as I heard from Arsenal, the decision was very simple and I’m very happy to be here.” Guendouzi also confirmed that he spoke to former Arsenal striker Jeremie Aliadiere before choosing to sign for the club. “I did speak to Jeremie about Arsenal and he said it’s a place where I can progress and learn a great deal from the staff here.” “He always spoke very positively and that made me feel very confident in the choice that I’d made.” “It’s the club of my heart. There have been a lot of French players here and Thierry Henry is a symbol in France after his long career here. I used to watch Arsenal games with my father and it has a special place in my heart.” The 19-year-old was one of five signings made by new Arsenal boss Unai Emery this summer, making his full debut in last weekend’s 2-0 defeat to Manchester City after impressing during pre-season. Despite last weekend’s loss, the youngster insists Arsenal are capable of winning the Premier League title. “Yes, I believe we can win it this season because of the players and staff we have.
