It has emerged that Bolton midfielder – Gary Cahill, is wanted by several top European clubs.
Following a Summer where he was heavily linked with Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur it now seems that Chelsea and Juventus have also entered the race to sign the England international.
Cahill is expected to finally make a move away from Bolton in January as he wishes to play in the Champions League.
His release clause from the current club stands at £17 million, but with so many top clubs competing for his services it is expected to raise closer to £20 million.
Bolton manager, Owen Coyle, has said in the past that he does not want to lose Cahill, but with the defenders’ contract running out at the end of the current season Bolton will try and cash in while they can rather than risk losing him for nothing in the Summer.
Cahill is now established as a center-back for his national team, which has certainly helped to raise his profile around Europe and alert big clubs on the continent.
