TRANSFER NEWS: Giants Set To Bid £10m For Arsenal & Spurs Target

By on September 20, 2011

There has been some extraordinary football played last weekend, and now I have a bit of transfer news that can be considered just as sensational.

Arsenal, who scoured the globe for a suitable central defender during the summer, showed real interest in Bolton’s 25 year-old defender, Gary Cahill. The asking price of £17 million was considered too high by Arsene Wenger, and Arsenal purchased Per Mertesacker instead in a last minute rush to find reinforcements across the squad.

Now, what seems to be Arsenal’s loss may prove to be Barcelona’s gain, as they are said to be raising their interest in the former Aston Villa, Burnley and Sheffield United lad, apparently preparing a £10 million move for Cahill.

Out of contract next summer, Cahill is likely to move on with considerable interest from the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea, but surely the European Champions will blow the English sides out of the water. The opportunity to play in such a fantastic team with countless world beaters in the squad is a stunning opportunity, not to mention a very, very rare one indeed.

The England international would provide cover in the Barcelona defence, and with Carles Puyol ageing at an impressive 33 as well as more prone to injuries, Cahill would be capable of stepping in and being that physical presence needed at the back, pairing up with the former Manchester United defender, Gerard Pique.

Cahill has said in the passed he wants to play European football, but surely even he couldn’t have expected to be playing it at Camp Nou rather than the Emirates.

    LMAO, this is possibly the funniest article i’ve ever read. Barcelona have no reason to buy him as they’ve got Fontas coming through.

    It makes a lot of sense, actually.
