Liverpool and Arsenal are reportedly on red alert following news of Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani hinting at leaving his current club and making a move to the Premier League in January.

The Merseysiders and the North Londoners were both heavily linked to the Uruguayan striker this summer, with there being reports of the Reds making an official enquiry and the Gunners tabling a £50 million bid.

But, in the end, Cavani's move to the Premier League failed to materialise and Liverpool and Arsenal ended up signing Mario Balotelli and Danny Welbeck instead.

Now the Uruguayan has once again reignited rumours by saying that he may be moving to a different club in January.

"In football we never know what is going to happen the next season, or the next day. There are lots of things that could happen in a club," said Canavi, according to the Daily Express.

However, the former Napoli striker claims that he is happy at PSG, insisting that the reports about him being unhappy at the club could simply because of his facial expressions on the pitch.

 "I have never been a very smiley player on the pitch so you can think that I am not happy maybe. 'Cavani is not happy because he is playing at a different position. Each person has their own view, but to talk about me being sad or other problems, it has never been the case," he added.

Meanwhile, Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers dismissed suggestions of him wanting to offer a new deal to Steven Gerrard due to the player having a sentimental value at the club.

The Reds captain, who is currently on the last year of his contract at Anfield, recently stated that he would be moving to a new club this summer if Liverpool did not extend his contract beyond this season.

With Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini hinting at making a move for the 34-year-old next summer, Rodgers finally revealed that he was in talks with Gerrard's agent over a new deal.

But the former Swansea City boss insists that Gerrard will be offered a new deal at Anfield due to him being still being an "outstanding player" rather than him having a sentimental value at the club.

"It's certainly not sentimental," Rodgers told the Guardian. "As manager of this club you can't afford to be sentimental."

"But both on an off the field, as a leader and as a captain, I want to ensure that Steven is very much part of this second curve we're on in terms of group development. When you see some of his passes and his influence in the changing room he's still an outstanding player."
