The 28 year old French international left Newcastle United for the Parc des Princes in January but is struggling to retain a foothold in Laurent Blanc’s starting eleven and has subsequently seen his role in the national tema suffer and as such is said to be considering his options.
Cabaye enjoyed a successful two and a half season spell at St James’ Park and it’s that English top tier experience that may be tempting Brendan Rodgers to land the cultured midfielder.
PSG are thought to want £20m for Cabaye and that’s a fee Liverpool could be willing to pay though it’s not immediately obvious as to where he would fit into a starting eleven that would also presumably need to include Steven Gerrard, Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana.
The set-piece specialist made 93 appearances for the Magpies, netting 18 goals in the process.
