TRANSFER NEWS: Chelsea Rival Arsenal & Spurs For English Duo

By on July 2, 2011

Chelsea boss Andre Villa-Boas is interested in signing Bolton’s Gary Cahill and Birmingham’s Scott Dann.

Sky Sports reports that the new Chelsea tactician is eyeing British talent and has identified the pair to bolster his squad this summer.

Dann, who has just been relegated with Brum is keen for a swift return to the Premiership with a number of clubs keen to sign the 24-year old. The reliable centre half has already been subject to a failed bid from Stoke City and has been linked with a move to North London pair Tottenham and Arsenal.

Birmingham will be keen to cash in on the £15million rated defender after their failure to secure a Premiership status.

Cahill has been linked with moves to Arsenal and Manchester City respectively and reports suggest Arsenal have already had a bid turned down for the English international with the club holding out for £17million.

Villa-Boas is unlikely to move for both defenders with the West London club already boasting an array of central defenders, including club captain John Terry, Brazilian Alex, the versatile Branislav Ivanovic and exciting prospect David Luiz.

    Do you know what makes me have a little chuckle every time I pick up the paper. When it says Chelsea/City/Arsenal are in for Cahill.Why would they be interested in a player who couldn’t get in Villas first team, who is further down the England pecking order than Mathew Upson, who has played one half of one good season, who was involved in the worst fa cup semi final display since 1927? why?
