MEDELLIN Hassan Whiteside Youth Jersey , Dec. 27 (Xinhua) -- Colombia's Atletico Nacional have confirmed their interest in signing Shanghai Shenhua midfielder Giovanni Moreno as they aim to bolster their squad for the 2018 season.
Newly appointed Nacional coach Jorge Almiron said the club is also pursuing out-of-favor Napoli full-back Camilo Zuniga ahead of the new season, which begins in January.
"There is no question about his quality," Almiron said of Moreno in his first press conference since replacing Manuel Lillo earlier this month. "We hope to reach an agreement and have him in our squad. It would be a pleasure to have a player of his class," the Argentine added.
Moreno is contracted to Shanghai Shenhua until December 2019 and his market value is estimated at around six million euros.
The 31-year-old has been one of the most consistent performers in the Chinese Super League since joining Shanghai from Argentine side Racing in 2012.
Almiron said he was not concerned by Zuniga's lack of recent football. The 32-year-old, who began his career at Nacional as a 17-year-old has not played since ending a 12-month loan spell with English club Watford in June.
"His previous managers speak very highly of him as a professional and he is a person who loves this club so I would also like to talk with him," Almiron said.
- A drone rescued two swimmers off an Australian beach on Thursday, a world first for the fast-developing technology that seems perfectly suited to saving lives at sea Dion Waiters Youth Jersey , authorities said.
The rescue took place as life savers at Lennox Head, a beach popular with surfers south of the city of Brisbane, were preparing for a training session on using drones to pull swimmers to safety.
The practice turned into a real rescue when someone noticed that two men swimming outside safety flags were in trouble in a three-metre (10-foot) swell, the government said in a statement.
Lifeguards launched the drone, steered it towards the swimmers and dropped a "rescue pod" into the water, where it expanded so the swimmers could grab it and swim to shore.
"Never before has a drone fitted with a flotation device been used to rescue swimmers like this," said John Barilaro Dwyane Wade Youth Jersey , the deputy premier of New South Wales state.
The rescue took just 70 seconds. The two swimmers were exhausted but unharmed.
Barilaro said the state government had invested A$430,000 (247,940 pounds) in a trial of drone technology in December.
Australia, most of whose 24 million live on the coast, had 291 drownings in the year to June 30, a small increase over the previous year but a decline on a per capita basis, according to the Royal Life Saving Society.

MELBOURNE, Jan. 17 (Xinhua) -- Many of the top seeds at the Australian Open struggled through their second round matches on Wednesday, as the tournament's young guns put on a show for the 70,000 fans in attendance at Melbourne Park.
What was supposed to be a routine match up for second seed Caroline Wozniacki, soon turned into the most exciting tussle of the day.
Down one set to 19-year-old Croatian Jana Fett, Wozniacki looked like she would be making an early exit in the tournament.
With clear signs of frustration Goran Dragic Youth Jersey , including a moment when the Danish star threw her racket on the ground in anger, Wozniacki managed to compose herself and survive multiple match points in the third set to break serve three times and eventually get the win 6-3, 2-6, 5-7.
It was a similar story for Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who was pushed to the limit in a 5-set thriller by 18-year-old Canadian player, Denis Shapovalov.

Other top contenders like Rafael Nadal, Marin Cilic and Pablo Busta Carreno managed to cruise through their second round clashes, while crowd favorite Nick Kyrgios found things a little more difficult.
There was certainly no problem with the way the Aussie was playing, taking out the contest in four sets.
The issues came with a bizarre series of disruptions off-court, that saw a helicopter halt play, a heckler in the crowd get ejected from the venue after shouting and a problem with the arena's audio speakers that caused feedback issues for both players.
"The guy in the crowd was crazy Dwyane Wade Womens Jersey ," Kyrgios said.
"I didn't really know what was going on. [With] the helicopter, that's when I was thinking like, of course it's at my match...there were a lot of things going on there today," he explained after the match.

But the story of the day belonged to 15-year old Ukrainian Marta Olehivna Kostyuk, who became the youngest women to make it into the third round of a Grand Slam in over 20 years, after beating out home town hero Olivia Rogowska.
