Liverpool are reportedly considering a move for 33-year-old Cameroon international Samuel Eto'o, according to the Mirror's back page on Tuesday.

"Eto'o good for the Kop," reads the headline, which suggests Liverpool are keen on the striker after he was released by Chelsea.

The Daily Star go with the same theme, using the headline "Kop keen on Eto'o" to introduce their coverage of a possible summer deal.

The Daily Mail are calling Manchester City signing Eliaquim Mangala their "£32m Mr. Fix-It."

Elsewhere, Rory McIlroy's USPGA Championship triumph has turned thoughts toward October's Ryder Cup at Gleneagles in Scotland.

"McIlroy tells US rivals to be very afraid," reads the Times' back page headline.

The Daily Express go bold, with the headline "Bring on the Yanks" and a picture of McIlroy celebrating his fourth major at Valhalla on Sunday.

More McIlroy from the Independent, who have a piece suggesting "Americans are in awe of McIlroy" as their back-page lead.

The Telegraph go beyond America and suggest McIlroy has the whole of golf "running scared" after he made it back-to-back majors at the age of 25.

McIlroy once more for The Sun, who opt for "Ror-some" as their headline and talk of the Northern Irishman's potential to be the greatest of all time.
