Bolton manager Owen Coyle admits that there is a possibility of Arsenal making a bid for Gary Cahill in January.
Speaking at a press conference ahead of Saturday’s game when the two clubs lock horns at the Emirates, Coyle said:
‘I won’t be surprised if they came back for him. Wenger has always said that he’s an admirer of Cahill, so I think it’s possible they’ll bid for him come January.’
Arsenal tried to sign Cahill in the summer with a bid that was believed to be around £7 million, which Bolton rejected, stating it was an insult from the north London club.
Many believe that Cahill will use games like Saturday’s as a platform to showcase himself, but his manager believes otherwise:
‘He has nothing to prove to anyone. He has already shown time and again what a talent he is and I believe his future will be brighter.’
I’m not sure if Wenger realises this, but, in my opinion, Coyle is a sales representative trying to do his business early this January.
