Isco wants out and could join Liverpool or Arsenal, who are apparently ready to bid big for Edinson Cavani in January.

REMY IN THE ARSENAL CROWD
If you watched Arsenal's match against West Brom yesterday, you will have noticed the cameras panning to Loic Remy in the Emirates crowd during the second half.

Given that the on-loan QPR striker has been rather vocal about wanting a move of late ("Nowadays, without being pretentious, I might be able to play for a bigger club, a top-five European club"), that set tongues-a-wagging, particularly at the Daily Mail, who believe that Remy's presence at the game will 'fuel talk of a move'. Well yes, by you, so it's rather a self-fulfilling prophecy chaps.

Unfortunately, Arsene Wenger did slightly p*ss on everyone's parade after the game. "I have just been informed Loic Remy was here. I honestly did not know," Wenger said. "I hope he paid for his ticket."

Typical Arsenal eh, always focusing on the financial income.


LIVERPOOL AND SPURS CHASE ONAZI
Ogenyi Onazi has been pretty sodding brilliant for Lazio this season, so it is little surprise that the Nigeria international is being linked with some of Europe's top clubs. And Spurs, it seems.

That's the claim of the Daiy Star, who claim that Lazio have put a £10million price tag (not literally) on the defensive midfielder with the hope of either warding off interest or gaining a decent fee should he choose to leave.

Liverpool may be considered to be the favourites to land Onazi, given that the player himself has already desperately flirted with Anfield this season. "Liverpool? They are a huge team and are attractive to any footballer," he said. "I could see myself playing for them. I would jump at the chance."


SOUTHAMPTON SEEK SHAW REPLACEMENT
With talk of getting £27million for his services, one can see why Southampton might be quite willing to sell Luke Shaw this summer. He looks ruddy excellent, but that's a huge fee for an 18-year-old.

In fact, it appears that the Saints may have already found his replacement, with the Daily Mirror claiming that Nice's (ctrl+c, ctrl+v) Timothée Kolodziejczak is interesting the club. To the relief of us all he is nicknamed 'Kolo'.

Kolodziejczak is 22, and moved to Nice from Lyon in 2012. The Mirror estimate that he would cost in the region of £6million.


AND THE REST
Jailed owner Carson Yeung wants £25m for Birmingham City, amid reports he has received several offers for the club... Fulham midfielder Steve Sidwell, 31, will discuss a new deal at the club despite their relegation from the Premier League... Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott, 31 - who is out of contract in the summer - will snub a move to Turkey to stay in the Premier League... Arsenal's hopes of landing 24-year-old Alex McCarthy have improved with the keeper confirming he wants to leave Championship club Reading... Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is determined to turn around the club's fortunes next year and win back the fans.
