Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool have each received a timely boost in their alleged pursuit of Yohan Cabaye after it emerged that Paris Saint-Germain are willing to sell him for £19 million - the exact same fee they paid Newcastle United for the midfielder's services in January 2014.

According to The Express, the Ligue 1 champions have decided to freeze the France international's price-tag in the hope of encouraging offers for a player that has barely featured under Laurent Blanc this season.

Cabaye arrived at Parc des Princes with a burgeoning reputation following his successful stint in the Premier League, but he's failed to ever really establish himself in the PSG first-team.

With stiff competition for places in Blanc's starting line-up, the French outfit are ready to cut their losses and cash-in on the player when the transfer window reopens at the turn of the year.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is a known admirer of Cabaye's talent, and came close to luring him to the Emirates Stadium when he left St James' Park in the mid-season window last term.

Arsenal's desperate need for defensive midfield reinforcements will almost certainly mean that the 65-year-old is alerted by news of his availability and would be foolish not to pursue the possibility of a cut-price deal in early 2015.

Having just been rocked by the confirmation that Jack Wilshere faces at least three months out following ankle surgery, and the additional blow that captain Mikel Arteta picked up another calf injury in last night's Champions League clash against Dortmund, Wenger could be forced into the market in search of recruits in January.

However, Liverpool or Manchester United could throw a spanner in the works if Brendan Rodgers or Louis van Gaal decide to firm up their interest in taking Cabaye to Anfield or Old Trafford for the second half of 2014/15.

The 28-year-old is understood to be keen on a return to England, ideally moving to a club that plays in the Champions League, which would place Arsenal and Liverpool ahead of Manchester United in the race for his signature.
