Paris Saint Germain are looking for a new striker, with Louis Saha and Fredi Kanoute being linked with unlikely moves to the French capital.
PSG are chasing a big-name forward to partner Pauleta and are casting glances towards The Premiership.
Saha wants to stay at Manchester United and fight for his place after an injury-ravaged season. The arrival of Alan Smith and Wayne Rooney has seen the Frenchman fall down the pecking order but his cause has hardly been helped by his fitness travails.
French sources claim United could be interested in a loan deal whereby they pay a percentage of his wages but Saha has no real intention of leaving Old Trafford, even on a temporary basis.
Kanoute is also unlikely to want to quit Spurs, even despite coach Martin Jol's open criticism of the forward after his handball gifted Liverpool a lifeline in the Carling Cup.
The ex-West Ham striker has forced his way into the first team reckoning and has started to find the net again.
Shabani Nonda may represent a more viable option.
The Monaco forward is out of contract next summer and has not managed to agree an extension.
A é¼1.5 million bid might be enough to tempt the Principality outfit into selling, although the African's sizeable salary could pose problems.
