b>Our pick of the transfer rumours from across the paper’s this afternoon

1) Chelsea have made an enquiry for Paris St-Germain striker Ezequiel Lavezzi during their David Luiz negotiations, The Daily Mail report. It is understood the Argentine, 29, is keen to play in a more competitive league outside France with Luiz moving to PSG after the French champions agreed to pay Chelsea £48 million for the Brazil international. The Argentine forward still has two years to run on his PSG contract and the French club want to extend his deal but may be prepared to use Chelsea’s interest in him as part of a big bid to sign Eden Hazard.

2) Harry Redknapp’s newly promoted QPR are after Frank Lampard and Rio Ferdinandand, The Guardian report. The manager has said he has learned from last time and now need to sign quality players to keep the side up. Redknapp has worked with the duo, both 35, before at West Ham and with both out of contract with Chelsea and Manchester United respectively, they are available for no transfer fee.

3) Arsenal are showing keen interest after QPR have revealed striker Loic Remy is available for around £8million, The Mirror report. Wenger is reported to be an admirer of the French international and is looking to strengthen upfront. "I don't see Remy wanting to come back and play," said Redknapp. "He's talking about playing Champions League somewhere."I wouldn't know what he'll do, but I think he's got a buy-out clause which is at a reasonable level." The 27-year-old scored 14 Premier League goals in 26 appearances on loan at Newcastle last season.

4) And finally The Guardian report former Sunderlan manager Paolo Di Canio has put himself forward to be the next Celtic manger. The Italian’s agent has said he would consider a return to Parkhead as Neil Lennon’s replacement. His UK representative, Phil Spencer, says the 45-year-old would relish the chance to become the club’s new manager. He is quoted in a number of newspapers saying: “Paolo would be keen to speak to Celtic. He played for the club and he certainly has a good relationship with the fans. There has been no contact between Paolo and the club. But if there was, it’s something he would consider.”
