Eto'o did a decent job up front for Chelsea last season but couldn't score away from home and three of his goals came against David Moyes' Manchester United. With Daniel Sturridge currently injured, Brendan Rodgers has witnessed a post-Suárez Liverpool with Rickie Lambert up front and the former Southampton striker is already suffering from Crouchitis.
Now 33, or 36 in José Mourinho's eyes, Eto'o is a free agent after his season at Stamford Bridge and would represent the perennial extra body with Champions League experience. Still, it's quite a comedown from Radamel Falcao and Edinson Cavani.
Bild are keeping the Mats Hummels momentum going by claiming Manchester United will pip Arsenal to the Borussia Dortmund defender's signature.
Southampton will continue to fine Morgan Schneiderlin if he refuses to play against Liverpool on Sunday. The club have also reminded the Frenchman his puerile behaviour will harm his international ambitions.
And Fulham have found a home for Kostas Mitroglou - his former club Olympiakos.
