Tottenham are considering making a fresh bid for Arsenal defender target Gary Cahill, according to the Daily Mail.

Cahill has put in some spectacular performances for Bolton over the last season, and has been the subject of transfer speculation since the window opened in June.


And while Arsenal were said to be front runners to secure Cahill’s signature, Tottenham have stepped up their chase for Cahill after negotiations for Blackburn star Chris Samba hit a snare.

Arsenal are reportedly yet to make a bid for Cahill, with Wenger reluctant to fork out the £17 million exit clause in the Englishman’s contract.

Tottenham have only made one signing this summer – USA goalkeeper Brad Friedel from Aston Villa. The club are in negotiations for Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor, but any deals by Tottenham look like they’ll be done closer to the last minute than fans may like.

Harry Redknapp was quoted as saying that Adebayor would be a good coup for the club, particularly because Arsenal fans hate him, and Tottenham will no doubt be excited at the prospect of steeling the march on their cross-town rivals to sign Cahill as well.
