CHELSEA GOING FOR A SONG
Are Chelsea intent on putting together that Arsenal side that looked pretty good but never won a thing? According to the Daily Express, they are going to follow up their £30m capture of Cesc Fabregas with a £10m move for Alex Song. Well, he has to be better than Jon Obi Mikel (linked to Valencia).

Manchester United are also thought to be interested in Song, who is surplus to requirements at Barcelona.


CHELSEA SPEND YARM AND A LEG
'Chelsea are weighing up a £12million move for Dinamo Kiev winger Andriy Yarmolenko,' say the Daily Mail, who claim that 'Yarmolenko is 6ft 2ins, quick, powerful and has a decent goals record with 54 in 146 games for Kiev and 15 in 39 for the national side'. Which all sounds vey impressive.

Kiev were previously asking £20m - a price which put off both Liverpool and Arsenal - but are now said to be willing to negotiate downwards. One question on behalf of Jose Mourinho: Can he track back?


LIVERPOOL ENTER SHAQIRI TALKS
Quite why the news was coming out of Italy that an English club were talking to a German club about a Swiss player is unclear, but everybody seems to be giving some credence to reports that Liverpool have entered negotiations with Bayern Munich for Xherdan Shaqiri, who has made it clear that he wants to leave the German champions after being frozen out by Pep Guardiola. It certainly makes sense that Liverpool look elsewhere after apparently being quoted £25m for Adam Lallana.


AND THE REST
West Brom's bid to make Tim Sherwood their new manager has run into a last-minute pay row...Wes Morgan is set to sign a two-year deal with Premier League new-boys Leicester...Stoke winger Michael Kightly will join Burnley for £1million...QPR target David Forde has signed a new three-year deal at Millwall...Ronald Koeman is set to be unveiled as Southampton's new manager...Sunderland are poised to table an improved £6m offer for Swansea centre-half Ashley Williams...Fulham have made a £5million bid for Leeds striker Ross McCormack...Hull are leading the chase for Harry Maguire from Sheffield United - but the Blades are holding out for £3million...Burnley are making a £2.5million double bid for Derby pair Richard Keogh and Craig Bryson.

Meanwhile, Arsenal continue to prepare more young players for other teams.

t's just a ride. Bill Hicks is sorely missed, what a prophet and still relevant twenty years after his death. I'm glad though he didn't get to see George Bush Jnr as President.
