Cisse seems to have agreed to join Marseille following talks with the club. The Marseille president Pape Diouf travelled to Merseyside to open negotiations with Liverpool. He is also seeking a loan move with an option to buy him later, but Liverpool's chief executive Rick Parry is likely to hold out for a £7m transfer in the knowledge that Marseille are highly capable of raising funds through the sale of the France international winger Franck Ribéry to Manchester United, Arsenal or Lyon. A Cisse-Ribery exchange deal is also an option for Parry, but not a likely one since the player is valued at £25m.

UPDATE: Following Cisse's injury, any dealings with the player are probably on hold or even cancelled. 

The rest..

Manchester United and Chelsea are in a race to sign Valencia defender Marco Caneira. Valencia Sporting Director, Amadeo Carboni told reporters: "Caneira can move to Sporting or go elsewhere, with his long contract we would be looking for a significant offer though."

Barcelona say they could loan striker Maxi Lopez to an English club for the coming season – news that will alert a number of Premiership sides.

Reported Spurs target Ben Arfa has been placed on the transfer list of his current club Lyon, after he rejected their latest contract offer.

West Ham have had their hopes of signing French international striker Sidney Govou raised following the news that his current club Lyon are prepared to allow him to leave.
