PSG AFTER OSCAR AND HAZARD
Given that Chelsea let Juan Mata leave Stamford Bridge in January we can't see Jose Mourinho allowing either of Eden Hazard or Oscar to go in the summer, but the Daily Telegraph this morning claim that Paris St Germain are interested in both of Chelsea's principal attacking midfield options.

The story focuses on quotes from PSG midfielder Lucas Moura, who goes far beyond eyelash-fluttering in Oscar's direction.

"Oscar is a very good player, a rare talent in today's football, given his qualities. He is very complete and is very smart. We need someone like him at PSG.

"I think he would help us a lot. The more quality players there are, the better it is for the squad. Also, he's a very good friend of mine. I would be very happy if he came to PSG, the club too."

Those follow the lead of new PSG signing Yohan Cabaye, who spoke recently on his hopes of Eden Hazard joining the French champions.

"Hazard is the player I'd like to see at PSG. He would do a lot of good to Paris and the league. He's one of the best players against whom I've played."

Probably more pertinent is the paragraph that admits that Chelsea are likely to reject all offers for both players, and may instead offer them contract extensions in order to further tie them down. Guess that doesn't quite sell.


COLE TO LIVERPOOL
Brendan Rodgers is, like pretty much every manager at the top of the Premier League, looking for a left back this summer. However, whilst we probably thought that he would look abroad for his option, the Daily Star claim that Liverpool may instead make a shock offer for Ashley Cole.

Rodgers knows Cole from his time at Chelsea, and may be prepared to try and persuade the England international away from a move to the MLS, the Star believe.

Let's just say that it would be a fair surprise.


SPURS WANT TO RE-SIGN CAULKER
There are many sticks with which to beat Tottenham's recent transfer activity, but the news that they are considering re-signing Steven Caulker just a year after selling him to Cardiff is probably the biggest, especially given the struggles of both Michael Dawson and Younes Kaboul with form and injury this season.

That's the line in the Guardian today, who ponder whether Spurs may in fact have put a first-option clause option into the deal to sell the defender last summer. The paper also remark that Tim Sherwood would be happy to welcome back Caulker, but that rather depends on whether Sherwood himself is still around to put out the bunting.

If Cardiff were relegated, one supposes that Spurs wouldn't have to pay a fee too much higher than the price they sold for, but it's still a fair-sized swallowing of pride.
