Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is eyeing Bolton Wanderers defender Gary Cahill.

The People says Villas-Boas wants to pair up England duo Cahill and John Terry in his defence.

The Portuguese chief has told Bolton of his interest and will have first option on the Three Lions star in January.

Villas-Boas steered clear of the mini-auction for Cahill in the last transfer window as Tottenham and Arsenal made low bids for the classy centre-half.

Chelsea put down a ‘marker’ for the defender by sending French forward Gael Kakuta to the Reebok on loan – a deal that will be reviewed in January.

And Villas-Boas will look to seal a deal for Cahill in the New Year market – with his availability for Champions League action a major plus in his favour.
