Arsenal and Chelsea target Gary Cahill insists he is staying calm about his future - despite admitting he has no idea where he will be playing next season. reports how the 25-year-old Bolton defender, who is out of contract at the Reebok Stadium in the summer, has been the subject of intense transfer speculation over the past six months.

Having been courted by north London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham in the summer, it is Chelsea who now appear favourites to land his signature in an attempt to shore up their fragile defence.

Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas is under increasing pressure following Sunday's 2-1 Barclays Premier League defeat against Liverpool at Stamford Bridge, condemning Chelsea to their third loss in the last four outings.

The Portuguese tactician has earmarked defensive reinforcements as the main priority in January, and has been linked with an £8million move for Cahill.

However, the Blues could face competition from Gunners boss Arsene Wenger who may renew his interest in the England international in the New Year, following deadline day signing Per Mertesacker's slow start to life at the Emirates Stadium.

Despite increased speculation surrounding his future, Cahill is adamant he will not be unsettled by rumours, and revealed how he is taking the transfer talk in his stride.

"There's no disguising the fact I am out of contract at the end of the season, so there will always be speculation," he confirmed. "For me, it's just a matter of keeping focused and playing football and trying to play at the top of my game.

"Nobody has a crystal ball so no-one has a clue what will happen. I am contracted to Bolton and they have been fantastic.

"I will deal with whatever is in front of me if and when it arrives."
