So let’s fill you in with what’s happening at the Liverpool rumour mill at the moment, starting with news of Newcastle Utd’s Yohan Cabaye.

The French midfielder has long been linked with a move to Anfield, after missing out on a move to Arsenal in the summer.

However, Cabaye admits he expects to stay at St James’ Park until at least the end of the season, but is eyeing Champions League football.

He is quoted on InsideFutbol as telling French media station RTL, “I lack the Champions League.

“I will be back this season with Newcastle, focused on the coming months. After that, we will see.”

Meanwhile, talkSPORT report that AC Milan have joined Liverpool and Manchester United in the “race” (whatever a transfer race entails) to sign Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke.

The 21-year-old has made seven appearances for Spain and is a first team regular for the La Liga side, who are reluctant to sell the rising start, according to talkSPORT.

The Daily Star report that Koke is valued at around £16million, as well as agreeing Liverpool are an interested party.

TurkishFootball suggest Liverpool are also eying Koke’s teammate Arda Turan, who is also catching the attentions of Man Utd.

The website claim his agent, Ahmet Bulut, said last season, “A destination in the Premier League would be to the liking of the player and I can confirm there are clubs interested, like the two mentioned. He wants to work in England.”

They also claim Liverpool would have to trigger a €40million release clause in the Turkish international’s contract to initiate a transfer.

Just another day down at the LFC Rumour Mill…
