Liverpool and West Ham United are involved in a head to head battle to secure the services of Crystal Palace star Yohan Cabaye, according to reports from the Brentwood Gazette
Crystal Palace most certainly pulled off a major coup by securing the services of Yohan Cabaye from Paris Saint-Germain during the summer and while the Frenchman has not been able to produce his best in recent times, his contribution during the first half of the season should not be ignored.
Cabaye was the orchestrator behind Palace’s wonderful start to the campaign and with the French international pulling the strings, the Eagles even threatened to finish in one of the European positions this season.
A remarkable slump has seen Palace’s European dreams crushed but Cabaye remains one of the better players for the Eagles at the moment and it has recently been reported that there are a host of clubs eyeing a summer swoop for the 30-year old.
Cabaye wanted by West Ham and Liverpool
Liverpool were mentioned as a possible destination for Cabaye and it had been claimed that the Reds were preparing a £15million offer for the midfielder.
Now according to reports from the Brentwood Gazette, it has been claimed that even West Ham United have joined in the race to sign Cabaye.
West Ham want to sign a host of marquee players ahead of their move to the Olympic Stadium next season and manager Slaven Bilic is said to have identified Cabaye as one of his main targets as he bids to add more creativity into his lineup.
There have been suggestions that Alan Pardew could be open to parting with Cabaye if West Ham are willing to include Michail Antonio as part of the deal but one can safely assume that no concrete discussions have been made as of yet.
