Muriel: 'Fiorentina can dream'

Luis Muriel claims Fiorentina “can be allowed to dream” of a Champions League spot. “After all, we are only five points off fourth place.”

The Viola are on fine form at the moment and fresh from a 7-1 Coppa Italia drubbing of Roma, setting up a semi-final against Milan.

Much of that is thanks to the arrival in the January window of Muriel, on loan with option to buy from Sevilla.

Napoli to purchase Ospina

Napoli are ready to take up their purchase option from Arsenal on David Ospina, even if he doesn’t make 30 appearances.

The goalkeeper arrived on loan for €1m in mid-August, during the final days of the transfer window, with an option to buy for a further €3.5m.

That would become mandatory if he played in 30 competitive games for the Partenopei during the season.

According to La Repubblica newspaper, Napoli have decided they will purchase Ospina on a permanent basis, even if he doesn’t meet the criteria.

Juve target James out for 2018

Juventus interest in Bayern Munich’s Colombia international James Rodriguez could be on hold after a serious knee injury.

There had been repeated rumours of a possible January or June swoop, particularly so he could reunite with good friend and former Real Madrid teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, the Colombian will be out of action for several weeks after suffering a partial tear of his lateral collateral ligament in the left knee.

It’s now unlikely James Rodriguez will be able to play again before the end of 2018.

Inter striker Mauro Icardi has urged Argentina to stick with him after a fifth cap without a goal. “Sooner or later it’ll come.”

Icardi completed 85 minutes of Argentina’s 0-0 draw with Colombia on Tuesday evening, and the Inter captain – who was left out of his country’s World Cup squad – made it clear he was ‘committed’ to the Albiceleste.

“We had a good game and turned the national team into a great group,” he said after the match.
