Reds ‘trying to gazump Chelsea’

Liverpool are trying to gazump Chelsea’s move for Gary Cahill, the Daily Mirror claim.

Chelsea have had a bid for Cahill accepted by Bolton but are yet to agree personal terms with the England defender.

AVB is keen to sign Cahill.

He is believed to be keen to stay in the north and the Mirror say Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is ready to swoop.

But The Guardian say Chelsea are confident of sealing Cahill’s signing next week and are likely to capture Juventus’ Milos Krasic on loan.

The Mirror also suggest that Blues manager Andre Villas-Boas has told predecessor Carlo Ancelotti to stay away from Chelsea’s players.

Ancelotti has been confrmed as Paris St-Germain boss and has been linked with moves for a number of his former stars.

Chelsea are also said to be still interested in Jack Rodwell but reluctant to pay the £20m Everton want for him.

Fulham are reported to have offered to take Ghana midfielder Derek Boateng on loan from Ukrainian club Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk with a view to a permanent transfer.

And reports in France suggest Fulham are in talks over a loan deal for Andre-Pierre Gignac from Marseille – again with a view to a permanent move – and have also checked on Paris Saint-Germain striker Guillaume Hoarau.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail say QPR manager Neil Warnock is considering signing Wayne Bridge from Manchester City.

Finally, based on Federico Macheda’s agent stating that he is convinced his player will join QPR on loan from Manchester United, several papers say the striker is on his way to Loftus Road.
