The Daily Mail are reporting that Paris St-Germain are willing to outbid Real Madrid in the race for Gareth Bale - and want Andre Villas-Boas to replace Carlo Ancelotti as manager.

Such a scenario would be a disaster for Tottenham and chairman Daniel Levy will be doing everything in his power to prevent it from happening. If he can prove to AVB and Bale that Spurs will be competitive in the transfer market this summer then it is possible that both men could choose to stay, but PSG have near-unlimited funds and the ambition to become the biggest club in Europe, so the opportunity may prove too good to turn down.

Chelsea loanee Mohamed Salah scored a goal in Fiorentina's 2-0 win on Thursday that sent Spurs out of the Europa Cup with a 3-1 aggregate win over the North London club.

Spurs, already down an away goal, didn't generate many opportunities as they crashed out of the Europa Cup on Thursday in Italy. Mario Gomez's goal eventually proved to be more than enough for the win but Jan Vertonghen was stripped by Salah in the 71st minute and the Chelsea man scored to put the tie away. Roberto Soldado could have had a first half chance to put Spurs ahead but, befitting a man whose confidence is low, he chose to pass rather than have a shot on goal.

Marouane Chamakh is one of three Crystal Palace strikers currently sidelined because of a hamstring problem after Alan Pardew confirmed the Moroccan would be out for around two weeks.

Chamakh was injured during the build-up to last weekends’ game and missed the opportunity to face his former employers at Selhurst Park after a scan confirmed a grade one tear – a similar injury to the one suffered by team mate Yaya Sanogo – both players are expected to return for the Queens Park Rangers match in GW29. Glenn Murray and Dwight Gayle could lead the line at West Ham although Shola Ameobi is an option - Fraizer Campbell has been ruled out [for up to 6 weeks]. The Eagles will welcome back James McArthur for the trip to the Boleyn Ground while Pardew also confirmed captain Mile Jedinak had trained fully this week but a place in starting eleven is no gimme with Jordon Mutch impressing recently.

After Besiktas made their five penalties and Liverpool made their first four, Dejan Lovren sent his spot kick high and the miss saw the Reds bow out of the Europa Cup.

Liverpool were lucky not to lose the tie in open play as Demba Ba rattled the cross bar with the score 1-1. The Reds' luck wouldn't hold up as Lovern's miss compounded a miserable week for English clubs in European competition. Liverpool's hot form in the Premier League didn't carry over and now they will have more energy to focus on the Premier League as that will be the only way they qualify for next season's Champions League.

Mame Biram Diouf has technically been back from the ACN since Week 24 but Week 27 signaled his return to the score sheet after two lackluster matches.

Diouf has been a solid-but-not-great acquisition thus far for the Potters. He came to the club on a free but that is generally accompanied by high wages and it isn't clear that he's been worth that part of what it cost to bring him to the Premier League. Far be it from us to disparage the season Jon Walters is having but Diouf's goal against Aston Villa puts Diouf a goal behind Walters and tied with Peter Crouch for second among the Potters' goal scorers. Certainly Hughes would have been hoping he was recruiting a leading man rather than a member of a solid-but-not-great ensemble. Maybe this goal, and the return to form of Victor Moses, will be the thing that turns his season around and pushes him on to bigger and better things.

Brown Ideye's hot streak had to come to an end sometime and Week 26 was the time as the Baggies failed to score at the Stadium of Light.

With Southampton West Brom's next opponents, it might be reasonable to guess that Ideye's goalless streak will go to two matches after the weekend. Ideye's revival under Tony Pulis has been a nice story over the course of February but starting with Week 27 we'll find out if it was just a nice run from a player who remains below average for the Premier League or whether the combination of some time to adapt and a better system around him supplied by Pulis has unlocked the best from the player. Tread cautiously but don't write him off after one poor match.

Tottenham exited the Europa League after an error-strewn 2-0 defeat by Fiorentina gave the Italian side a 3-1 aggregate win.

This could be the final nail in the coffin of Roberto Soldado's spluttering Tottenham career. The away side dominated the first half and had a clear chance to go ahead in the tie when Soldado broke the offside trap and found himself one on one with the Fiorentina keeper. However, instead of shooting he elected to square the ball to Nacer Chadli and woeful under hit his pass, allowing the keeper to recover. It was a shocking piece of play, and Spurs never recovered. Mario Gomez raced clear after a second-half mistake by Federico Fazio and slid the ball under Hugo Lloris before Chelsea loanee Mohamed Salah sealed the win after an error by Jan Vertonghen. The result is a blow for Spurs before their biggest game of the season so far - the League Cup final against Chelsea on Sunday.

There isn't much more you could ask from a new player than what Dame N'Doye has delivered since joining Hull City at the end of January.

Two Premier League matches have yielded two wins, five shots on target, two goals and an assist. There are certainly examples of players who started quickly in the league and then flamed out but N'Doye certainly appears to have the physical gifts to be an above average Premier League forward. Based on what we've seen so far, it wouldn't be unreasonable to guess at a 13 to 16 goal average over a full season. Definitely worth picking up in both the short term and the long term across multiple types of fantasy formats.

Robbie Brady has had an up and down season from a fantasy point of view and he was "up" again in Week 26.

Brady has seen just about everything this season. Strong form. Poor form. Position change. Injury. Playing predominantly as a left back these days, Brady's fantasy production has been lackluster in recent weeks. Week 26 saw a return to previously strong efforts but before anyone reads too much into it, his elevated production was due mostly to an assist. Unless he becomes an assist machine of Fabregas proportions this level of production isn't sustainable.

Nikica Jelavic has returned to fitness in February and goals have come with his renewed fitness.

Jelavic has been a nice redemption story for Steve Bruce when he has been healthy. Ditched by Everton for poor performance, the Croatian forward proved to be a bargain last January when Steve Bruce bought him. 2014-15 has been up and down for the forward punctuated by an early-January injury that cost him a month and a half of the season. Back from that injury he has picked up his scoring pace with goals in each of Hull City's past two matches. The only caveat to his production is that he is scoring goals but not adding much in the way of phantom points. If Buddy Ryan were his manager at Everton he might have been quoted as saying "All he does is score goals." as he sold him.

It's been a long time in the wilderness for Di Maria but he has slowly started producing the sort of fantasy performances we expected from him when he arrived for a hideous pile of money.

Four successful crosses and an assist. That's sort of the minimum that we expected from Angel Di Maria when he arrived from Real Madrid. That's what we've seen in Week 25 and 26 but it feels like it's been a long time coming. The question is, to what extent can Di Maria sustain this sort of production when his team is struggling for attacking fluency. Given that he is a costly asset in nearly every format imaginable, I'd tread cautiously on buying in on the sustainability of his run of good form. It isn't that I don't believe in the player's talent, it's that I don't believe in his team.

Ander Herrera got a goal in his return to the line-up against Swansea. The big question for fantasy managers isn't whether he can do it again but whether he'll even get the chance.

Louis Van Gaal has a lot of attacking midfielders and there doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason to how and when he plays any of them. Ander Herrera had been biding his time on the bench for a number of weeks when he finally got his chance in Week 26. He took advantage with a (slightly deflected) goal but it's hard to have any confidence that it will earn him another start given what we've observed about Van Gaal's rotation policy.
