North London duo on collision course over England defender

Published Add your comment

Tottenham Hotspur will fight it out with Arsenal for the signing of Bolton Wanderers and England defender Gary Cahill.

The Trotters opted to keep the centre-back in the January transfer window after a bid from the Gunners, but the 25-year-old is now expected to move on from the FA Cup semi-finalists at the end of the season.

Spurs, who as well as Arsenal could offer Cahill another taste of European football, are desperate for a defender who can deal with the demands of a full Barclays Premier League season with Ledley King, Michael Dawson and Jonathan Woodgate constantly on the sidelines.


However a stumbling block for both clubs could be Bolton's asking price for the defender, which is £20 million.

Given that, Harry Redknapp is preparing a cash-plus-player deal that could involve Robbie Keane, whose future at White Hart Lane is uncertain, going to the Reebok Stadium as a replacement for the out of contract Johan Elmander.
