Arsenal are ready to renew interest in Bolton Wanderers defender Gary Cahill according to the Daily Mail.
The highly rated England international is high on the Gunners' summer shopping list along with Blackburn Rovers captain Christopher Samba.
Arsene Wenger is keen to land Cahill, and is considering a player-plus-cash offer for the 25-year-old stopper that will include a loan move for highly rated Spanish starlet Ignasi Miquel.
Miquel is widely regarded as an Arsenal star of the future, but may be handed the opportunity to gain some first team experience on a season long loan at the Reebok Stadium.
The 18-year-old defender made his Gunners first team debut in an FA Cup tie at Leyton Orient, and impressed with an assured performance, following up with an equally promising display in the Emirates Stadium replay.
However, in an attempt to continue his development, Miquel could follow in the footsteps of current Arsenal prodigy Jack Wilshere – who also completed a successful loan spell with Owen Coyle and Bolton before breaking into the Gunners first-team last season.
Miquel has already attracted interest from other Barclays Premier League sides but Coyle may consider him too inexperienced to replace Cahill in the Trotters line-up and so could still look for a straight cash deal.
Having already lost out on first-choice defensive target Phil Jones, who confirmed a five-year deal with rivals Manchester United today, Arsenal are desperate to land Cahill to show a signal of intent to build a squad capable of challenging for the title again next season.
