PAUL HETHERINGTON COLUMN: Asoro may go, Strachan’s pride, Llorente not Guardiola material

18 Jun



“For Sunderland to have any chance of keeping Asoro, they may need to start playing him more.”


Attacking talent Joel Asoro was watched throughout the season that has just ended by the country’s biggest clubs.

Pickford, who is in Poland with England for the European Under-21s Championships, has joined Everton for £30m.

That makes him the most expensive British goalkeeper and Sunderland now face a fight to keep Asoro, also involved in Poland with Sweden.

The Stockholm-born star is only 18 and has made just one Premier League appearance – and that was for only nine minutes as a substitute.

But he admitted that he was aware of Arsenal’s interest in him while Tottenham and Newcastle have also been watching him amid talk of a £3m move.

In Sweden it’s claimed the forward has also been scouted by both Manchester clubs, Chelsea, Juventus, Paris St-Germain, Bayern Munich and the two Milan sides.
