Juventus are the latest club to be linked with a move for Tottenham Hotspur defender target Gary Cahill.

The England international centre back was anticipated to make a move away from Bolton Wanderers in the summer transfer window, with north London rivals Spurs and Arsenal both keen on the 25-year-old.

However, Trotters boss Owen Coyle managed to keep hold of his defender, but faces the prospect of losing him either on the cheap in January or free next summer, when the player's contract expires.

Sources in Spain have confirmed that Barcelona have been monitoring the player's progress recently, and with Italian speculation now tying the bianconeri to a move, it appears interest for the player has spread across Europe.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp was frustrated on deadline day in his pursuit of Cahill, with the White Hart Lane chief confirming that he thought a deal might be possible.


 

Champions League football is thought to be a key component in any future decision Cahill makes, and Spurs' significant step over the Gunners at the weekend suggests they could be the team to challenge for a top four spot this season.

Whatever his decision, Cahill appears to have several options at his disposal, with either Serie 'A', La Liga or the Barclays Premier League possibilities. Tottenham Hotspur will be hoping he chooses the later.
