Liverpool agree €55m deal for Riyad Mahrez

  Liverpool agree €55m deal for Riyad Mahrez Liverpool have agreed a fee of €55m (roughly £48.7m) with Leicester City for Riyad Mahrez, according to a report from beIN SPORTS in France. The Algerian, according to the report, will have a medical with the Reds tomorrow ahead of the move. Earlier today, it was reported by the Press Association that Liverpool were not interested in Mahrez and that they’d even contacted The Foxes to let them know that reports of their interest were wide of the mark. However, beIN seem to think differently and are reporting that the former PFA Player’s Player of the Year will indeed make a switch to Anfield as a replacement for Philippe Coutinho who is set to become a Barcelona player in a £142m deal.

Marko Arnautovic created three and scored the other as West Ham lifted themselves away from the Premier League relegation zone with a 4-1 victory over Huddersfield Town.

For the third successive away game, Arnautovic found the back of the net for the Hammers, his latest strike coming 11 seconds into the second half at the John Smith's Stadium.

The Austria international created the opener for Mark Noble midway through the first half, only for Joe Lolley to level things up with his first league goal of the campaign.

Huddersfield were not level for long, though, as Arnautovic stunned the home crowd with his sixth of the season, a powerful drive beyond Jonas Lossl.

Victory lifts the Hammers into 11th place in the table, above Huddersfield, while also giving David Moyes his 200th Premier League victory.

Huddersfield had the better of a competitive start with attacking trio Rajiv van La Parra, Tom Ince and Lolley leading the charge.

However, it was West Ham who broke the deadlock just before the half hour after a mistake by Lolley from Lossl's short goal kick.

Town's attempts to play the ball out backfired dramatically as Arnautovic and Noble applied pressure, the pair dispossessing Lolley before the latter slotted home.

Moyes doesn't want any outgoings

  Moyes doesn't want any outgoings David Moyes has said that he doesn’t want to let any of his players leave this month, saying interested teams will have to pay a lot of money to convince him otherwise. It has been reported that West Ham were looking to offload summer signing Javier Hernandez in the last few days, and that Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho are both wanted men, but Moyes wants to keep them all at the London Stadium. The Hammers coach wants to keep all of his goalscorers, as he sees the club’s strength in depth as an advantage in ensuring they retain their Premier League status. Moyes is looking for additions in the transfer window though, namely a right winger, but he has seen any and all offers rejected as of now. Talking about his reluctance to sanction sales this month, Moyes said; “I don’t want any of them to go. We’ve got no players here who we want to leave. We want to add to our squad.” “Ideally we strengthen, so my intention is not to let anyone go. We’ve got four or five strikers and the competition is tough for all of them but I’m happy that way.” “If we were (to sell) it would take an awful lot of money in this window to prise any of them out.” Diafra Sakho is one who has looked destined to leave this month. The Senegalese forward has stated his intention to leave, and has found minutes tough to come by this season, with Mark Arnautovic and Michail Antonio preferred up front to him.

Making such a mistake on his first home Premier League start could have easily affected the 25-year-old, but he responded in the perfect fashion by levelling things up before the break.

A neat Huddersfield move on the right ended up at Lolley's feet, he cut inside and was given plenty of time to curl a sumptuous shot out of Adrian's reach.

David Wagner's hopes of Huddersfield maintaining momentum in the early stages of the second half were quickly extinguished by a sensational Arnautovic strike from the kick-off.

A long ball from Angelo Ogbonna was flicked onto the Austrian by Cheikhou Kouyate, he lifted it over Tommy Smith and lashed beyond Lossl to restore West Ham's lead.

With the wind in their sails, West Ham pushed for a third and came within inches as Aaron Mooy cleared off the line after Lossl had failed to deal with an Aaron Cresswell corner.

And there was no respite as Lanzini put the game to bed with two strikes in quick succession.

His first came after a neat passing move that finished with Arnautovic slipping the Argentine in, Lanzini making no mistake from 15 yards.

As the clock ticked past the hour he had his second, this time profiting from Arnautovic's rapid counter attack to lift the ball beyond Lossl.

The introduction of new signing Alex Pritchard gave Huddersfield renewed hope, but there was nothing the former Norwich City man could do as Moyes celebrated his milestone win.

Chelsea consider move for Marko Arnautovic .
Chelsea are considering a move for West Ham United striker Marko Arnautovic, according to ESPN FC. The Premier League champions are in the market for a new forward and it looked like they had Andy Carroll as their prime target but his injury means that they’ve had to turn their attention elsewhere. They’ve been linked to the likes of Peter Crouch, Islam Slimani, Edin Dzeko and Ashley Barnes in recent weeks and now, the latest name being touted around is Arnautovic. The Austrian international joined the Hammers in the summer for around £25 million and after a slow start, he’s hit a purple patch of form in which he’s scored six goals and had three assists in his last eight Premier League games. It’s highly unlikely that West Ham would sell the 28-year-old as he’s their main goalscoring threat at present, so it’d take a huge offer to even get them to think about a sale.
