Harry Redknapp is hoping to beat Manchester City and Arsenal to sign England international Gary Cahill, with the Tottenham manager willing to offer Sebastien Bassong or Younes Kaboul as part of a player plus cash deal worth £17 million, according to the Daily Mirror.

Tottenham have reportedly been keeping an eye on Cahill for months, and while word is circulating that Arsenal and City have made bids for the star, Owen Coyle insists no club has spoken to him yet.


“Gary could play for anyone, and I really mean that, so if I'm honest I'm a little bit surprised there hasn't been anything,” Coyle said.

“Looking across the marketplace and a few of the deals that are going on at this moment in time, it does surprise me that there hasn't been that concrete offer.

“But people have to take their time and make sure they come up with the right offer because he certainly won't be going on the cheap, that's for sure.”

Arsenal have particularly been connected with Cahill lately over City, with Gunners legend Ray Parlour recently saying he thinks Cahill would be the ‘perfect’ signing for Arsenal.

Manchester City won’t be discounted from the race, though, with a higher budget than Arsenal and Tottenham as well as the ability to offer Champions League, which Tottenham currently can’t put on the table.
