Redknapp: Arsenal should make £17m defender move

Former Liverpool star Jamie Redknapp believes that Gary Cahill will make the difference if Arsenal hope to challenge for trophies this season.

The Gunners won their Champions League playoff against Udinese last night, and Arsene Wenger will no doubt be pleased at being able to attract players with the carrot of European football this season.

And Redknapp insists that the Arsenal manager should put all of his efforts into bringing Cahill to the Emirates.


“This win for Arsenal may now help them to attract more players,” Redknapp said.

“One who I can see making a real difference is Bolton’s central defender Gary Cahill. Johan Djourou and Thomas Vermaelen were both missing at times last season through injury. Cahill, however, is a fit boy who played in 41 games for Bolton last season”

According to the Daily Mail, Cahill has a £17 million exit clause in his contract, but Arsenal are hoping to get the star for a lower price.

Having not done a deal yet could be a tactical move for Wenger, with Cahill’s contract running out next summer. Bolton won’t want to let the England international go for free, and may decide to let Arsenal have him at a discounted rate at the last minute.
