Tottenham Hotspur have approached Bolton Wanderers over the signing of Gary Cahill in the January transfer window a mere 48 hours after the summer window slammed shut, according to The Metro.

Spurs narrowly missed out on Cahill, as Bolton stood their ground on deadline day to keep their prized asset, who is out of contract at the Reebok Stadium next summer.

However in an effort to jump Arsenal, who were also reportedly interested in Cahill, Tottenham are ready to enquire as to Cahill's availability in the new year.


With Ledley King's injury problems still keeping him out of action and the form of Younes Kaboul and Sebastien Bassong a growing concern, the addition of Cahill in the Tottenham defence is seen as very important to the club's attempts to qualify for the Champions League.

Bolton are reportedly demanding £18 million from Tottenham, a fee that became too rich for Redknapp.
