Transfer news: Sunderland close on Argentine striker Ignacio Scocco
By Paulo Freitas | Last Updated: 12/01/14 10:14pm



Ignacio Scocco: Thought to be close to joining Sunderland



Sunderland are reportedly closing in on the signing of Argentine striker Ignacio Scocco.
Sunderland boss Gus Poyet confirmed earlier this week he was interested in Internacional ace Scocco and reports emanating from South America claim that he is on the verge of a move to Wearside.
The likes of River Plate, Newell's Old Boys and Valencia have been credited with an interest in Scocco, but it appears Sunderland are in pole position to land the Argentine international.
The Black Cats have held a long-term interest in the 28-year-old and the player's father, Hector, has claimed the most likely destination for his son is the Stadium of Light
"The most likely today is that [Scocco] joins Sunderland," Scocco Snr told Diario Ole. "River and Newell's asked for him but Internacional's demands are too high and they don't want to loan him out.
"That's understandable as they want to recoup the investment they made and no club in Argentina can afford what they want."
Scocco Snr also revealed that Poyet had spoken with his son about a move to the Premier League.
"Poyet told him what he wants that he is very interested that Scocco goes [to Sunderland.]," added Scocco Snr.
Internacional's director of football Roberto Melo has confirmed Scocco wants to leave the club and that several sides are chasing his signature although he ruled out any loan switch for the forward.
"There are many clubs interested in Scocco and there are several offers, but we want a permanent move, we are not interested in loan offers," Melo told Radio Bandeirantes.

This whole Scocco thing is shaking my brains about.  Last week on Sky, it was said that di Fanti had already turned down the chance of signing him.  This week, we find that Poyet has been on the phone to him, and we are closing in on signing him. 

They can't both be right.

Of course they can! In the January transfer window brinkmanship rules. Selling clubs and agents try to call the shots and get as much for their players as they can, and buying clubs play chicken with them, to see who blinks first.

SAFC are likely to be negotiating with a number of targets, and Gus has made it clear he is involved in transfer activity, as well as di Fanti. I expect they have a 'good cop - bad cop' routine going with Gus agreeing who to go for and then Di Fanti playing hard ball with fees and wages offered. Then back to Gus to soften them up, tell them how much they are wanted, how much they will bring to Sunderland, what a great club it is, fantastic fans etc etc etc.  Laughing 

Unfortiunately some of these targets, or their agents, tell the press certain things to try to expedite a decision, while the club says nothing officially until the player is signed, so I take anything from 'Sky sources' with a pinch of salt.

It might easily smack of something else though, H.  It's only a couple of months ago that Poyet was talking about walking out unless he had the last say of first team recruits.  How is he and di Fanti getting along these days?  That's the question.

Watch and wait might be advisable.

Sunderland quoted £5m for Scocco


Nacho Scocc


BRAZILIAN club Internacional are looking for a fee in excess of £5million for Sunderland target Nacho Scocco.

Scocco is one of three Argentine players on Sunderland’s radar, with the Black Cats keeping tabs on both the winger and Catania goalkeeper Mariano Andujar, while they look to finalise a deal for centre-half Santiago Vergini.
Sunderland made enquiries over Scocco’s availability during the summer, after he netted 30 times during 46 appearances in a loan spell at Argentine side Newell’s Old Boys, before he joined Internacional in a deal worth around £4m. But after a fall-out at the Brazilian outfit, Scocco is expected to be on the move again this month, with both the 28-year-old’s agent and his father confirming Sunderland’s interest.
Sources close to Internacional have indicated that the club want to more than recoup their outlay on the one-time Argentine international though and are looking for a fee of more than £5m.
Sunderland, who cannot sign any more players on loan, would be wary of splashing out such a hefty figure, with the club’s league position so precarious and their Premier League status in such significant jeopardy.
But the Echo understands that Sunderland, who were yesterday linked with a move for Catania’s Argentinian striker Maxi Lopez, are working on adding to their attacking arsenal this month and have made headway with an overseas target.
Internacional’s asking price has scuppered Scocco’s chances of moving to his homeland, either with River Plate or Newell’s Old Boys.
But despite Scocco’s agent indicating interest from La Liga outfit Valencia, Sunderland are thought to be the only European club who have made a formal enquiry with Internacional.
The deal for Vergini is far more advanced, with Sunderland hopeful of tying up the formalities of the £500,000 deal.
Vergini is still in Argentina, as he looks to reach a settlement with his club Estudiantes before finalising his switch to the Stadium of Light.
But sources close to the 25-year-old remain confident that the move will be signed and sealed in the next few days.
Meanwhile, Brighton boss Oscar Garcia insists the Seagulls are keen to keep Liam Bridcutt at the club despite the midfielder submitting a transfer request last week.
Bridcutt, who missed Saturday’s victory over Birmingham with a groin problem, asked to leave the Amex Stadium after Sunderland saw a bid of around £2million rejected for the 24-year-old.
When asked whether Bridcutt would still be at the club at the end of the window, Garcia said: “I don’t think anybody can say that about any player, maybe Messi or Ronaldo, but all the other players have a price. But we want to keep him because he is one of our main players.”

Gus Poyet targeting Argentina striker to boost Sunderland's survival hopes

GUS POYET has been told he must fork out £6.5m to land Argentinian forward Ignacio Scocco.

Poyet is on the lookout for additions to his squad, as they bid to secure their Premier League survival (GETTY)

Sunderland want the 28-year-old on loan, but his club Internacional are only willing to do business this month if the Black Cats agree to a permanent deal.

Poyet faces competition from Argentinian sides River Plate and Newell’s Old Boys for once-capped Scocco, who is keen to move to the Stadium of Light.

His dad Hector said: “Internacional don’t want to loan Ignacio out, and the most likely outcome is that he will join Sunderland. Gus Poyet has told us he’s very interested in Ignacio joining them.”

The Black Cats are on the verge of signing £500,000 Estudiantes defender Santiago Vergini on an 18-month deal.

Ki Sung Yueng

But they could still lose Ki Sung Yueng - after Swansea insisted they can recall the Black Cats loan star.


Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins wrote:“He’s our player and we can recall him up until January 31”


The 24-year-old has been a revelation since joining in August, and Poyet is keen to cut a permanent deal for the former Celtic playmaker.

The Sunderland head coach admitted his relief at what he thought was the passing of the deadline last week for the South Korean to be called back to the Liberty Stadium.

But Poyet will be left to sweat a little longer after the Swans confirmed they retain the option of cutting the season-long loan short until the end of January.

Chairman Huw Jenkins said: “He’s our player and we can recall him up until January 31.”

28 years old,one cap, seems as if they tried him and didn't rate him.Rather would have had Guedetti,  Long, Jelavic but missed them,Regarding Ki I don't think Gus would have said anything without going through the contract with a fine tooth comb.
