Samuel Eto'o To Liverpool - Transfer Talk

Liverpool are having a hard time of it replacing Luis Suárez and even their most ardent followers must be sceptical of their apparent interest in Cameroonian has-been Samuel Eto'o.

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.

There's another line on Galatasaray's double swoop for Joel Campbell and Lukas Podolski, although Santi Cazorla is now at pains to declare his commitment to Arsenal amid interest from La Liga.

Bild are keeping the Mats Hummels momentum going by claiming Manchester United will pip Arsenal to the Borussia Dortmund defender's signature.
