Penarol prospect Facundo Pellistri is being tracked by Arsenal.

The 17 year-old attacker is being watched by the Gunners, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona this season.

El Observador says Pellestri could be on the move from Uruguay in January.

The youngster shares the same agent as Real Madrid starlet Fede Valverde and his father has taken calls from all three European powers.

Atletico hope they have an advantage given their success with Uruguayan talent like Diego Forlán, Diego Godín, Jose Giménez and Ceballos Rodriguez.

Mancienne exclusive: Chelsea culture inspired HSV move; Sancho shouldn't rush

Mancienne exclusive: Chelsea culture inspired HSV move; Sancho shouldn't rush

Michael Mancienne says Chelsea's international melting pot spurred him on to join Hamburg.

Mancienne was a prodigious talent who emerged from Chelsea's academy in 2006, winning the club's Young Player of the Year award and a FA Cup winners medal in 2009.

But after loan spells with Wolverhampton Wanderers and Queen's Park Rangers that spanned five seasons, Mancienne desired a permanent exit from Stamford Bridge to further his career.

That's when the versatile defender made the unorthodox decision to join Hamburg, making him the only English player in the Bundesliga.

Upon reflection, Mancienne told Tribalfootball that the move was inspired partly because of his experiences in the Chelsea dressing room.

"As a young boy growing up I always wanted, and especially being at Chelsea, I saw a lot of foreign lads coming to Chelsea and England," said New England Revolution defender Mancienne.

"And I thought why don't more people, and I know the Premier League is one of the best in the world, but I just always felt I'd want to play abroad.

"It just always kind of stuck with me and then when the opportunity came along, I thought wow, why not just take it, it might not come around again, football's a short career so you've got to make the most of it so I took that opportunity, and I loved it.

"It was one of my favourite times in my career to be honest."

Mancienne would return to England with Nottingham Forest in 2014 after 55 appearances in three seasons for Hamburg.

But the influence of Mancienne's spell would continue, as a number of young players - Jadon Sancho and Ademola Lookman to name a few - have made the switch to Germany after finding opportunities limited in the Premier League.

As a trailblazer for the current generation, Mancienne is happy to see people embracing the Bundesliga.

"I'm buzzing for them and that they're doing well. It's a great move, especially when they are playing in big teams so it's great, they're making a name for themselves you get a different experience of football.

"That time when I was there as well, Germany as a national team were unbelievable and you had teams like Bayern Munich who should've been in a seperate league, they should've been in the Premier League, because nobody could beat them in the league, they were ridiculous.

"So it was just a great experience to play against them and world-class players."

Borussia Dortmund winger Sancho has been linked with a return to England, with Manchester United and Liverpool reportedly interested.

And Mancienne thinks the 19-year-old should not rush his decision.

"He just needs to do what makes him happy to be honest. I don't think there's a massive rush to come back to England.

"It's not like Bundesliga is a terrible league, it's an unbelievable league. It's got great teams and every team tries to play football, there's not a team, even the ones towards the bottom, they're not playing long ball, they're actually trying to still play out from the back."

Liverpool to have Club World Cup games shown live on BBC

Liverpool to have Club World Cup games shown live on BBC

Liverpool’s quest to win the Club World Cup in Qatar will be broadcast free-to-air by the BBC in December.

The Champions League winners will begin their campaign with a semi-final on Wednesday, December 18 and then play either a final or third-place play-off on Saturday, December 21.

Jurgen Klopp’s side face a fixture pile-up over the festive period, having just begun a spell of 14 matches in 43 days up to and including their entry into the FA Cup in the first week of January.

That run of games includes a Carabao Cup quarter-final clash with Aston Villa just 24 hours before their scheduled Club World Cup semi-final.

Liverpool, who are currently leading the Premier League, last featured in the Club World Cup in 2005 where they made the final but lost 1-0 to Sao Paulo.

Philip Bernie, head of BBC TV Sport, said: “We’re very excited to broadcast the FIFA Club World Cup and show audiences the best teams in world football across our free-to-air channels.

“Along with the FIFA World Cup, UEFA European Championship, FA Cup, Premier League on Match of the Day and Women’s Super League, this competition is a fantastic addition to the BBC’s football portfolio.”

Liverpool’s semi-final in Doha will be broadcast live on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer at 1730 on December 18, with coverage details of their second match yet to be confirmed.

All other fixtures at the Club World Cup, which will feature the winners of the six continental confederations and a host representative team from Qatar, will be shown on BBC iPlayer and BBC Sport online.

Frank Lampard opens up on his latest Chelsea ‘project’

Frank Lampard opens up on his latest Chelsea ‘project’

Frank Lampard admits one of his “projects” at Chelsea is to get Mateo Kovacic among the goals.

Croatia midfielder Kovacic broke his Chelsea duck on his 71st club appearance in Wednesday’s 2-2 Champions League draw in Valencia.

The 25-year-old drilled home from 20 yards as the Blues tiptoed out of the Mestalla Stadium with a point despite the hosts squandering plenty of chances, including a missed penalty.

Kovacic could even have had a brace in Spain, only for Jasper Cillessen to deny the in-form Blues creator another goal, as Lampard revealed his plans for the former Real Madrid man.

“We’ve had a lot of jokes between me and him, and the whole squad and him, because he’s a player of such quality that should score more goals,” said Lampard.

“It’s a project for me, for him and for the whole staff to get him more goals, and he could have scored two.

“I’m delighted for him and I hope that’s the start of something new.”
