Sport Clement Grenier could move to Newcastle to replace Yohan Cabaye after Newcastle made a reported £20m offer for the Lyon Frenchman

Magpies allowed Yohan Cabaye to join Paris Saint Germain on Wednesday and are looking to reinvest the £20m received in the highly-rated Frenchman

<b>Likeliest arrival</b><br/>
After Arsene Wenger admitted that his defence needed bolstering, the Gunners are looking to express further interest in signing 23-year old <b>Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa</b> from French champions Montpellier. He has made 168 league appearances for Montpellier after making his debut in 2007 and recently earned his first cap for France. Yanga-Mbiwa has only one year remaining on his contract, so could be available for just £7m.
