Long-term Arsenal target Gary Cahill is now a target for Barcelona, according to The Daily Star.

Just two months on from their purchase of Cesc Fabregas, Barca are again set to upset the north Londoners as they plan to pounce on the in-limbo England defender.

Cahill was expected to move to Tottenham Hotspur on deadline day in the transfer window, however with a deal unable to be agreed, Arsenal had fresh hopes of securing a deal.

A Spanish source told Starsport: “It might seem unbelievable, but Barcelona have been watching Cahill and like the look of him.


“They think he’s comfortable on the ball and very strong defensively, so why not?

“He’s still young and is an England international, so there’s a realistic chance it could happen.”

In addition to the purchase of Fabregas, Barca signing Thierry Henry from Arsenal in 2007.

Arsenal did eventually sign Per Mertesacker to strengthen the central area, however, reports suggest they are planning another bid for Cahill, who is out on contract at Bolton Wanderers next summer.
