PSG ‘to bid £12m for Cole’

Paris St-Germain’s ex-Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is ready to table a £12m bid for Blues and England star Ashley Cole, according to the Daily Mirror.

Cole is believed to be a target for Ancelotti along with Chelsea team-mate Frank Lampard, while Jose Mourinho is said to be keen to take Raul Meireles to Real Madrid.

Torres to Russia?

The Mirror and the Daily Mail suggest another former Chelsea boss, Guus Hiddink, is keen to sign Chelsea striker Fernando Torres for bid-spending Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala.

Anzhi are planning to offer £35m for Torres, the Mail say, while the Mirror claim it will be more like £45m.

And The Sun claim Chelsea are ready to spend £35m on Real Madrid’s Argentine winger Angel Di Maria.

The Mail also report that Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic will snub interest from CSKA Moscow and that Fulham are pressing ahead with a move for Trabzonspor striker Burak Yilmaz as a potential replacement for Andy Johnson.
