REPORTS: Serie A Giants Line-Up £12m Arsenal, Chelsea & Spurs Target

By on October 15, 2011

Italian clubs Juventus and Inter Milan are both believed to be considering making offers for the in-demand Bolton defender, Gary Cahill.

The centre-back, now an England regular, has less than one year left on his current contract and is free to talk to clubs from January onwards, with a view to a free summer switch. It is thought Bolton will consider offers in the region of £12m in January for their prized asset and avoid losing him for nothing in the summer.

Premier League rivals Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham have all been linked with the defender, and Tuttosport now claims that the Serie A clubs have joined the race for the highly-rated 25 year-old, who’s current club find themselves bottom of the Premier League, after 6 consectutive league defeats.

    my sister lives in Milano and I talked to her husband yesterday and I asked him about the Cahill rumour and he says its an english media thing.
    the only mention of it in the italian press was saying ‘british papers report that Inter is interested in Cahill’.
    his brother then said to me “We have enough mediocre centrebacks… ive seen Cahill play this year and its honestly pathetic”.

    I think its more of a case of an agent tweaking the right sources to get a buzz going around his client. its done all the time.

    dont forget that the EPL pays an extra premium for the few remaining players in EPL which are english but taht holds little value outside.

    and being on the national team has very little significance, all it takes is for a player to have 3 good games (Wellbeck, Sturridge, Carroll) and they jump right into the starting lineup.

    Cahill will stay in Britain because his perceived value is higher (and his visibility is minimal outside it).
