Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits he may drop his pursuit of Bolton Wanderers defender Gary Cahill.

When Thomas Vermaelen returns from injury, that could mean an end to interest in £15m-rated Bolton man Cahill, who they tried to get in August.

Wenger said: "I like Cahill as a player but Vermaelen will be back in two weeks and Laurent Koscielny is a good defender too."
