Reports according to Goal.com say that Arsenal have been given 10 days by Bolton to buy central defender Gary Cahill.
“Bolton want the deal done as soon as possible so they have plenty of time to make preparations for the new season without Cahill and formulate their transfer strategy,” a source told Goal.com.
“Basically, they want it all sorted out by the end of next week and if it isn’t, then they might close the door on any deal until the next window.”
I can see where Bolton are coming from, they do not want a situation where the transfer is drawn out until the final day of the transfer window and then they do not have the chance to buy a replacement. So to for us, we would rather sign Cahill now and know that we have gotten our new central defender and focus on working with him in pre-season whilst we worry about trying to get another signings.
We can not let this opportunity of signing Cahill pass us by. He is a quality defender and just what we need to bolster our defence for next season. The £17million release cause in Cahill’s contract may prove to be the stumbling block as Wenger may not want to pay that much for Cahill. But the time is now for Wenger to start spending!
