Juventus deny interest in Liverpool striker

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has denied media reports linking Liverpool's misfiring striker Mario Balotelli with a move to the Turin giants in the winter transfer market.

The Italy international has scored just two goals since joining Liverpool from AC Milan in a #16million transfer in August and has yet to find the back of the net in the Premier League this season.

Allegri, who coached Balotelli at Milan before taking the helm of Juve in July, told Italian TV station RAI: "I think this is a made up story.

"Balotelli has done very well with me but he belongs to Liverpool and he is not a player that can arrive at Juventus."

Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli could have to pay up to 10,000 euros in speeding fines in the Italian region of Bergamo.

Balotelli racked up 18 offences between 2012 and 2013, including driving at up to 200km per hour in a 130km zone, but has thus far not paid them.

The striker told the court of Bergamo that he had not settled the fines, as he was living in Manchester at the time, so did not receive them.

One of Britain's most wanted fugitives has been arrested while trying to sneak back into the UK in a light aircraft from the Netherlands.

Suspected drug smuggler Paul John Scott, 32, was picked up by police after flying into East Winch Airfield in Norfolk in a Cessna 170.

The pilot, who was also arrested, had raised suspicions by flying into the same airfield in a different aircraft earlier this month.

The National Crime Agency (NCA) said Scott is a suspected member of a drug-smuggling gang from Merseyside that plotted to smuggle up to 40 tonnes of drugs into the UK.

The NCA said he was wanted by the Guardia Civil in Spain in connection with the murder of a British man, Francis Brennan, in Alicante.

He appeared at Liverpool Magistrates Court yesterday, charged with conspiracy to import cocaine, and was remanded in custody until his next court appearance on 2 January.

The pilot, who was also arrested on suspicion of money laundering, was bailed pending further enquiries.
