Serie A giants Fiorentina are the latest side to have joined the chase for Dnipro hotshot Yevhen Konoplyanka, reports Sport Mediaset.
The highly rated footballer has long been on the radar of Europe’s top clubs and he was on the verge of moving to Liverpool in January.
With his contract due to expire at the end of the current campaign, the 24-year-old is almost certain to leave Dnipro in the January transfer window.
And while Inter seem ready to make a move, their league rivals Fiorentina are also being linked with a January assault on Konoplyanka.
Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi insisted coach Laurent Blanc still has a future at the club.
Samuel Umtiti’s late strike was enough to condemn Blanc’s men to a third consecutive draw in all competitions, after Edinson Cavani had given his side a first-half lead, heading home Lucas Digne’s teasing cross.
The result leaves the champions with a league tally of 10 points from their opening six games, their worst start to a Ligue 1 season under the ownership of the Qatar Investment Authority.
Blanc had come in for criticism before this game and will have been disappointed with how his side threw away a lead for the fourth time in all competitions.
Abdelmalek Ziaya’s late strike earned ES Setif a 2-1 lead over TP Mazembe in the first leg of their CAF Champions League semi-final.
Ziaya’s superb turn and long-range finish in the 89th minute gave the Algerians a narrow advantage over their opponents from DR Congo on Saturday, ahead of the second leg next weekend.
Ziaya’s strike capped a stirring second-half comeback from the hosts, who had appeared set to be the masters of their own downfall at one stage.
After creating a handful of early chances, Mazembe were gifted the lead five minutes after the restart when Said Arroussi turned a left-wing cross into his own net.
