Aubameyang is valued at around £50m (Picture: Getty)Arteta is particularly keen on a forward because the Gunners fear that they will lose Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer.The Gabon international has one year to run on his deal at the Emirates and he’s attracted attention from Barcelona.Arsenal are still hopeful they he can be convinced to stay but negotiations over a new deal have subsided and the Gunners will listen to bids of around £50m, particularly if they miss out on Champions League qualification. Arteta’s preference remains to keep Aubameyang, particularly as he’s club captain. Should the Spaniard be forced into sellling to buy, he’d rather raise funds through the sale of Alexandre Lacazette.The Frenchman has found playing time hard to come by under Arteta and is valued at around £35m.MORE: Tammy Abraham admits he’d ‘love’ to play alongside Manchester United star Marcus Rashford Odsonne Edouard is valued at £35m (Picture: Getty)Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is interested in signing Celtic forward Odsonne Edouard this summer as the Spaniard looks to bolster his frontline.The Frenchman’s value has skyrocketed since joining the Bhoys from Paris Saint-Germain in a club record £9m deal. The 22-year-old’s bagged 62 goals in 126 appearances in Scotland and Celtic are already fighting off competition from some of Europe’s biggest clubs for the striker’s signature.Celtic are keen to give Edouard a new deal but they’re realistic about their prospects of keeping him and cashing in on their prised asset could offset some of the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTNeil Lennon’s side value the forward at £35m and Le10 Sport claim Arsenal are monitoring Edouard’s situation with a view to making a bid this summer.

On Nov. 10, 2007, Lock Haven (Pa.) beat Clarion 17-14. They have lost all 45 games since.Just one more loss will tie them for the longest losing streak in the history of Division-II football.Fifth-year quarterback Jarrett Kratzer’s career at LHU coincides with that winless run. But now he feels the program is on the right track as he looks to end his collegiate career with at least his first win. This is the best team he’s played for in five years, he said. And with this team, he hopes to avoid some dubious history.“I’ve been able to get myself motivated again,” Kratzer said. “I mean, going out there and not ending up with the result we want, essentially we just have to stay positive to the point where we know we’re going to get one and we know our time’s coming.”Kratzer feels that confidence, though Lock Haven has not had a winning season since 1982. And the Bald Eagles are scoreless through three games this season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textKratzer and his teammates prefer not to think of their infamous streak, though he admits it inevitably comes to mind. While head coach John Allen never mentions the streak, his influence on the program in just his second year at the helm has Kratzer believing in the team’s future success.The 2012 season is LHU’s first with Allen’s recruits on the team. Not only are this season’s freshmen higher-caliber athletes than in seasons past, there are simply more of them. The Bald Eagles came to campus this fall with 105 players on the roster, said Kratzer. In the previous four seasons, he said, they never broke camp with more than 70.Injecting young talent, in addition to some schematic changes, forced Allen’s players to “learn to practice.”“We practice very fast during practice, very detail-oriented. I can see that,” Allen said. “We go from drill to drill in a crisp manner, so I’m not sure that was the case before I got here, but it’s the case now.”Allen looked over the years prior to his hiring and saw very few upperclassmen. He had just five seniors in his first season in charge. There are 12 this season. He expects around 16 next year.A lack of senior leadership plagued LHU football.“That tells me that kids weren’t staying around within the program, and when you don’t have groups of freshmen on up that stick around for all four years,” Allen said, “then you have a lot of turnover, and that’s not good when you’re trying to build a program.”Allen recruits players to fit his fast-paced, aggressive style of play on both sides of the ball. He knows his team cannot recruit top-tier, D-II talent. Instead he recruits the best players he can, selling the school’s academics and reviving ties to the community.Ultimately, he goes after speedy, intelligent players to keep his offense constantly on the move, and powerful but equally fast talent to fuel his 4-3 defense.“We’re definitely looking for those tweener types at times,” Allen said. “Obviously, if we can get the big studs, there’s no question, we all want the studs. But like I said, that’s not always going to be the case. We try and find kids that fit well in our system and play well in our system.”That style of play has kept fans and the team positive, despite its lack of on-field success. According to Allen, alumni and students who watched LHU practice and play are excited by the squad’s progress.Saturday’s potentially historic game against Edinboro coincides with the town of Lock Haven’s Community Day. In an effort to get the student body to the game, players are scheduled to make appearances around campus through this week. The Bald Eagles will give out free pizza and T-shirts to students in residence halls, and “get ’em rowdy,” Allen said.Yet the energy and positive improvements will not mean nearly as much without a win. After more than four years with the team, Kratzer still does not know the feeling of victory in a game of college football.“It would pretty much just give the program a new direction, new hope,” Kratzer said. “We feel like we’re right there, to actually getting it and actually feeling what it feels like to win again.“It’s going to be huge.” Comments Published on September 19, 2012 at 1:59 am Contact Jacob: [email protected] | @Jacob_Klinger_ Facebook Twitter Google+
Wisconsin (10-12, 3-6 Big Ten) lost 76-61 to No. 6 Michigan State (19-3, 7-2 Big Ten) Friday night in East Lansing.In what at first looked to be a blowout with the score 37-21 at halftime, Wisconsin battled back to bring the team within six points midway through the second half.Despite the loss, this game was one of the more promising performances the Badgers have had all season. Happ and Iverson, neither of whom have been great this year from the line, went a combined 14-16 on free throws. This, paired with winning the turnover battle — albeit not too impressively at 13-11 — gave the Badgers a real shot to compete in this game.Men’s basketball: Badgers to face toughest game this season against MSU SpartansThe University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team is gearing up for a pivotal matchup against the Michigan State Spartans, looking Read…Unfortunately, Michigan State’s shots were falling relatively consistently whereas Wisconsin had difficulties with jumpers throughout the game. The Spartans shot 50 percent from the field and 42.1 percent from three, while the Badgers only hit 36.2 percent and 20.8 percent respectively.This game was a positive sign of the Badgers going back to the fundamentals. Limiting turnovers and hitting free throws were staples in the Bo Ryan and Greg Gard teams. But this game also showed weaknesses in the Badgers defense and shot efficiency that have not been typical of past Wisconsin lineups.The player who wasn’t on the court — D’Mitrik Trice — had the biggest impact on this game. With Trice’s return date still up in the air, the team’s lack of depth at the guard position is showing as prominently as ever.Badger basketball suffers minor setback during mid-seasonHistorically, University of Wisconsin men’s basketball’s greatest strength has been the program’s ability to recruit and develop dependable four-year players. Read…Though he has struggled in the past, Davison was able to limit his mistakes in this game with only two turnovers to his four assists. However, the increase in his passing efficiency came with a decrease in his shooting efficiency as Davison went just 3-12 on the day and 0-6 from beyond the arc. When the backcourt goes cold shooting, the Badgers’ options are limited to Brevin Pritzl, the only other true guard on the team.Time will tell if this performance is the start of a late-season renaissance or merely a one-off outing.
