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 manoeuvre 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?
