Arsenal winning battle with Man City for Bolton defender Cahill

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is in advanced talks for Bolton Wanderers defender Gary Cahill.

The Daily Mail says Wenger is poised to beat Manchester City in the battle to sign Bolton's Cahill after agreeing to match the 25-year-old defender's £17m release clause.

The Arsenal manager is anxious to strengthen his defence after missing out on Phil Jones this week despite matching the £16.5m fee paid by United for the Blackburn teenager.

Cahill is understood to favour a move to the Gunners.
