PSG IN FOR CABAYE NOW
Ah, a thickening plot.
The Independent reports this morning that Arsenal could well have some competition for Yohan Cabaye, with Paris St Germain's longish-standing interest in the midfielder set to be revived.
The paper claims Arsenal's move was 'undermined when their £10m bid for the Newcastle midfielder, made earlier in the day, was gazumped by Paris St-Germain who offered £15m for the Frenchman.'
The Daily Telegraph claims, as many places do, that Newcastle want £20million for their man.
Arsenal are also said to be keen on Micah Richards and could re-sign Mathieu Flamini, who is apparently training with the club.
Oh, and The Daily Mirror claims Arsene Wenger still hasn't given up on Luis Suarez.
NEW BIDS FOR FELLAINI AND BAINES
Ah, two new sagas to take our attention. Great.
The word around this morning is that Manchester United will make more bids for Everton pair Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines.
The Guardian reckons United 'are expected to return with separate offers' after their initial joint one was laughed out of town.
As for who Everton might spend any potential fee on, apparently Gareth Barry and James McCarthy are the primary candidates.
Speaking of United, it seems Javier Hernandez will be sticking around.
The Daily Mirror reports that the Mexican striker has the chance to move to Valencia if he wants, but would prefer to stay at United.
The striker's agent, Eduardo Hernandez, is quoted as saying: "Of course he wants to play more, to have more minutes, to participate more, but he wants to do it at United, he wants to defend the title and go far in the Champions League.
"The interest from Valencia was real. He had the chance to speak with the sporting director [Braulio Vazquez] but Javier, I reiterate, wants to stay at Manchester United, this is the challenge.
"He was very grateful to Valencia and the other clubs who called him.
"It's not a question of money - we didn't even talk about that subject, there's only one subject for Javier: he wants to play and be a starter at United.
"He knows it's a very competitive club and that he has to fight to play every day, in the dressing room and on the training ground, but he's not scared, he says he's more motivated than ever.
"His outlook is the same as when he moved to English football; to triumph.
"Now, with the new manager, he has a lot of hopes, a big desire to play and to grow as a footballer. This season is a new challenge for him.
"He wants to triumph in England. He knows that a starting spot comes with working hard and he has to take advantage of the opportunities that come his way, like he did with Alex Ferguson."
CISSOKHO SET FOR LIVERPOOL
Quick line from The Daily Mirror now.
They report that Valencia left-back Aly Cissokho is all set to sign for Liverpool today on a season-long loan.
The paper also says Brendan Rodgers will discover at some point today whether his £28million move for Willian is successful, while he has 'also renewed his interest in Sporting Lisbon's Tiago Llori.'
