ESPN FC: Bye bye Cabaye?
Arsenal target Yohan Cabaye is not on the brink of joining Paris Saint-Germain, a source close to the player has told ESPN.
Newcastle boss Alan Pardew was particularly scathing about the timing of the offer, as the Gunners look to bolster their squad before the close of the transfer window on September 2.
It was reported by the Independent and Daily Mail on Wednesday that PSG could scupper Arsenal's attempts to land the France international, who signed on Tyneside for around £3 million from Lille in 2011.
Cabaye is understood to be keen on a move to Emirates Stadium with negotiations ongoing, amid reports Newcastle are seeking nearer £20 million for his services.
