Arsenal defender target on Italian radar - reports

Published Add your comment

Arsenal defender target Gary Cahill has emerged on the radar of new Inter Milan boss Claudio Ranieri.

The former Chelsea boss took the reigns at the San Siro on Thursday following a poor start to the season for the Italian giants, and the Daily Mail claims Ranieri has already set his sights on the defender in a January move.

Arsene Wenger is a known admirer of the player, with the Gunners having a 'derisory' offer rejected for Cahill by Trotters chairman Phil Gartside during the summer transfer window.

However, Owen Coyle insists there is no ill-feeling between the two parties, and expects Arsenal to make another move for the player in the New Year, six-months before the England international's contract expires.

"I don’t know how Arsenal’s finances work, but they know he’s an outstanding player," said the Scot.

"The valuations in August were between the two chairmen, and, of course, it never came to fruition.


"Now there’s the problem of the January window, and I think there will be more than just Arsenal coming back in for him then. We will deal with at the time."

Arsenal will be able to take an even closer look at the 25-year-old this weekend, when his side travel to the Emirates in the Barclays Premier League.
