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.

e doesn't need a caoch. He needs a bus. A bloody big one, that he can park across the goal line. And when he gets one, he can do us a favour and let us know where we can buy one from as well.
