Flamini Potentially On His Way Back To Arsenal

Mattheu Flamini could be on his way back to the Emirates after training with the Arsenal side for the past two weeks. Flamini, 29, is looking for a new club after being released by AC Milan this summer.

It had been reported that Arsenal had had a bid rejected for Newcastle's Yohan Cabaye after making a £10 million bid that was described as 'derisory' by Newcastle.

So if Arsenal fail to land Cabaye, I can see them turning their complete attention to Flamini. Flamini is only in his late twenties so should have a few years left in him making the potential signing an appealing one.

Flamini, who left Arsenal back in 2008, had impressed in his last few years in London and became a favorite amongst the Emirates faithful. I'm sure all there would welcome him back even though he isn't the marque signing the fans want.

What do you think? Will Flamini make his way back to Arsenal?

Everton Not Interested In Barton

Everton show little appetite to sign Joey Barton despite his willingness to accept a 50% pay cut. Barton had taken to his twitter page to express his desire to move to Merseyside by tweeting 'Once a blue...'.

Barton, 30, had played his football with French side Marseille last year after QPR sent him out on loan after being given a 12 match ban at the start of the season.

Now that his loan spell is over, Barton wants his agent to maneuver a move to his boyhood team and make his wish come true. If only it was that easy to get a contract with the team you supported as a child, many men would be happy.

Unfortunately, however, Everton aren't as keen on Barton as he would have hoped and don't seem too rushed to make any offer for the midfielder.

Neville Southall has stated his opinion on the matter by saying 'Yes he is fit and runs up and down all day but Forrest Gump did that as well didn't he?'

What are your thoughts? Will Barton be a Everton player next season?

Chelsea's Hopes Of Landing Alonso Boosted

Real Madrid have increased rumors that Xabi Alonso may be on his out of Real Madrid after it is believed that they are weighing up a bid for Real Sociedad's Asier Illarramendi. As many would have guessed, Chelsea seem to be the most keen on the former Liverpool midfielder.

Xabi Alonso, 31, has been at the Bernabeu for four years now since moving from Anfield. Alonso and his representatives have held talks with Madrid but are yet to reach a deal regarding his future at the club.

It is also believed that Liverpool are hoping for the re-signing of Alonso, a player who did such great things at the club. 

The Summer has only begun and this story could take many twist and turns before the end of August but I can definitely see the return of Alonso back to the Premiership. Whether it's Chelsea or Liverpool, I don't know though. A reunion with Liverpool or a reunion with Jose Mourinho at Chelsea?

What do you think? Will Alonso be in the premiership next season?

PSG And Chelsea to Fight Over Cavani Signature

Edison Cavani, who is is hot property this summer, is now ivolved in a tug of war between PSG and Chelsea. The Uruguayan, who currently plays his trade at Italian side Napoli, has a £54 million buy-out clause in his contract.

Cavani, 26, has been sought for some time now, but this summer seems to be the time when one of many top European clubs will get their wish and land the striker.

Jose Mourinho's Chelsea are believed to have made an approach for Cavani but were unwilling to meet the £54 million price tag that was put on the striker's head. PSG are believed to have also made an approach and reportedly put a £43 million offer for the Italian side to contemplate. 

Of course, you can't rule out other top European clubs, with Manchester City believed to have made an offer but like others were reluctant to reach the £54 million that is being asked.

What do you think? Where will Edison Cavani be playing his football next season?

Villas-Boas Insists Bale Is Not For Sale

Andre Villas-Boas has today expressed his belief that Gareth Bale will continue to play his football at Tottenham next season. This comes after much speculation that the Welsh playmaker was on his way out of White Hart Lane.

Bale, 23, was easily the standout player in the Premiership from last season and was deservedly rewarded with both the PFA Players' Player and Young Player of the Year.

The club with supposedly the most interest in Bale are none other than Spanish giants, Real Madrid. With quite arguably the biggest club side in world football it will be hard for Spurs to keep hold of their talisman.

Villas Boas though has reiterated his intent on keeping the Welsh international by stating 'we are not open to offers, whatever they are, and the player will stay'.

The absence of Champions League football though could leave Gareth Bale open to talks with Real Madrid.

What do you think? Will Gareth Bale still be a Spurs player next season?

Chelsea Offload Marin To Seville

Chelsea midfielder Marko Marin has been allowed to move to Spanish side Seville on a season-long loan. The German international, who signed for Chelsea last summer, has failed to make a big impact at Stamford Bridge. 

With tough competition among the Chelsea ranks and after picking up a hamstring injury early on in his Chelsea career, Marin hasn't really got a sniff at the first team. 

With the arrival of Andre Schurrle from German side  Bayer Leverkusen, it seems as if Marko Marin's chances of playing consistent first team football have weakened some more. 

For this, I think a year on loan at Seville is a great decision. Credible side in a very credible league, Marin should be very positive about this move. 

As for Chelsea, although very talented in midfield, players such as Frank Lampard and Michael Essien are getting on a bit. Should they have kept Marko Marin for cover?

What do you think? Is this a good move for all parties involved?
