Chelsea Move For Arsenal, Liverpool & Spurs Target

By on November 10, 2011

Chelsea are gearing up for an £8million swoop for saught-after Bolton Wanderers defender Gary Cahill, according to reports.

Several news reports claim that Chelsea will move to sign Gary Cahill in January after Andre Villas-Boas identified the England international as the man he wants to bolster his side’s shaky defensive quartet.

The England international was subject to a bid from Arsenal in the summer, with Tottenham and Liverpool also strongly linked with the 26-year-old. Bolton slapped a £15m valuation on Cahill in the summer but none of the interested parties submitted a satisfactory offer and he remained with the Wanderers.

However, the depreciation of Cahill’s contract means he will be available for a considerably reduced fee in January and Chelsea are hoping to capture the defender for around £8million.

Villas-Boas has been alarmed by the number of goals conceded by Chelsea this season, having kept just two clean sheets in the Barclays Premier League.

    Even 8m is too high for Cahill considering he can sign pre contract agreement in January window and will be available for free next season. His Fair price would be 2-3m.
