Sanogo keen on Prem switch

Ivory Coast international Boubacar Sanogo has revealed his ambition to play in the Premier League.
The African ace is currently on the books of Bundesliga outfit Werder Bremen, but has seen first team opportunities hard to come by in Germany.
A loan move to French side Le Havre had been touted, but Sanogo insists England holds the biggest appeal for him.

Bremen trial Aussie defender

Werder Bremen are taking a close look at Australian international Mark Milligan.
The 23-year-old FC Sydney player has been training with the German giants and Werder sports director Klaus Allofs admits the defender could be a potential target.
"He is a young and interesting man and we have been watching him for some time," Allofs told the club's official website.

"He played well at the Olympic Games and is extremely flexible in defensive positions."
Milligan, who regularly captained the Australian Under-23 team, also flew out with the full national squad in the World Cup 2006 but failed to feature in the Germany tournament.

Juve no-go for Cassano

Juventus president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli has been quick to play down reports linking the club with Antonio Cassano.
Speculation was rife over the summer that the Serie A giants were keen on taking the Italy international to Turin.
However, with Amauri, Alessandro Del Piero, David Trezeguet and Vincenzo Iaquinta already at the club, Gigli believes the Bianconeri do not need another attacking option.

"Cassano? There are no spaces for him," the president explained when questioned about the Sampdoria hit-man.
"Saying he's not a good player would be blasphemy, but we have young players who can become great champions and we must concentrate on their development."
Meanwhile, Juve are rumoured to be ready to offer a contract extension to midfielder Sebastian Giovinco.
The new deal would keep the 21-year-old at Juve until at least 2013.

Atletico insist Aguero is happy

Atletico Madrid have warned Manchester City they would be wasting their time in pursuing Sergio Aguero.
The Argentina international is one of Europe's most highly-rated talents, adapting to life in the Primera Liga with ease since a move from Independiente two years ago.

Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Chelsea have been linked with the 20-year-old in the past, while Manchester City have also joined the hunt following the arrival of their new billionaire owners.
City and Chelsea were believed to have sent scouts to watch the youngster in action against Getafe on Wednesday, keen to determine whether the striker is worth his 47.6million buy-out clause.

Atletico president Enrique Cerezo is not worried by the mounting interest, though, and feels Aguero would reject the chance to move to England even if a suitable offer was received.
