TRANSFER NEWS: Arsenal Target Dominant Defensive Duo
Arsenal are in talks with Bolton’s Gary Cahill and Blackburn’s Chris Samba. Arsene Wenger has finally accepted that his defensive line needs strengthen and wants proven Premiership defenders.
Wenger was believed to be in talks with a double move for Blackburn duo Chris Samba and Phil Jones, but the 19-year old has opted for a £16million move to Old Trafford. However, Samba is still very much on the radar at the Emirates and could be an Arsenal man for around £12 million.
The Arsenal chief is expected to move for the classier defender Cahill, but Wenger will not meet the £20million valuation set by Bolton’s hierarchy. Wenger was hoping to secure a move for around £15million and include a fringe player as part of the deal reports the Mirror.
Manchester City have also been linked with a potential move for Cahill and Wenger could find himself priced out for the England star, but Wenger is hoping Arsenal will have more appeal that a move to the Midlands.
