Arsenal Hold Private Talks With Cahill Over £15m Move | Midfielder Also Linked

By on June 17, 2011

Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis has held private discussions with Bolton defender Gary Cahill over a potential £15million switch to North London, according to reports in the Metro.

The Gunners are set to secure the services of the English international over the next few days which will see the 25-year old line up at the Emirates next season.

The former Aston Villa man was liked with a move to Manchester City but is set on a move to North London. Cahill could be followed by old boy Sebastian Larsson who came through the youth system at Arsenal.

The Swede failed to make the grade at Arsenal and was shipped out on loan to Birmingham back in 2006 and made the deal permanent at the end of the season.

However, following the Blues relegation the former Gunners trainee was released by City and has suggested interest from Arsenal. He told Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet:

‘I know there is some kind of interest but I cannot currently say whether something can be done or not.’

‘At the moment I do not know how it is going. I know who said that they have shown an interest but the next few days will tell.’

    I’ve just looked at BBC ceefax where Owen Coyle states that no club has made an offer for Cahill which means I suppose no approach has yet been made. As for a private meeting I can’t see Arsenal making one as they always like to keep things above board and surely that would be illegal if they had.

    The Metro is always full of doo doo.

    There’s so many stories banging about it’s making my head hurt. I hope we get Cahill, but not for 15 mil.

    R we going all out for defence alone dis time? Imagine,MU has rooney,hernandez,barbatov & 5 proven CD. Chelshit has drogba,torres,anelka and 4 worldclass CD. Messi,villa & pedro r deadly. Cr7,benzema,higuain,adebayor & dimaria r sensational. Wat do we have? Only RVP & 3 CD verm, kosc & djou. We have lacked ambition!

    Interesting to see that when I criticise your site for posting incorrect information you delete my post yet leave a post that simply says ‘bollocks’.

    Just for the record.

    Your two points were that Cahill had had private talks with Arsenal despite this breaking the rules and that Larsson will join Arsenal too despite him actually already joining another club.

    Chuckle. Good journalistic standards

    You fans really do make me laugh as any player who comes into the tranfer window is a case of, ”please, please buy, buy, buy,”!!! Stop behaving like idiots as you cannot afford to buy every player that but sneezes!

    It’s about time he got on with it opened his purse wider than usual and for gawds sake pay the money the clubs want (within reason) of course, but stop trying to get quality players on the cheap it’s wasting time. Pay up and we’ll make more money in the long run when we start winning things once again..
