Arsenal have reportedly decided not to follow up their interest in Bolton defender Gary Cahill when the transfer window opens in January.

Cahill was consistently linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium during the summer, but the Gunners were unable to agree a fee for the 25-year-old.

According to the Evening Standard, Arsenal chief scout Steve Rowley recommended Cahill directly to Arsene Wenger as a worthy acquisition.

However, it is claimed, the Arsenal boss has now 'withdrawn' his interest in the England centre-back, believing any proposed deal would not represent good value for the club.

Along with Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham have also been pursuing Cahill, and both are likely to approach Bolton in the New Year.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are now more focused on midfield reinforcements, and Wenger is expected to enter the transfer market again when the opportunity arises.

The Gunners boss is thought to be monitoring Rennes enforcer Yann M'Vila, while he is also keen on Benfica's Javi Garcia.
