Tottenham ready to battle Chelsea for Bolton defender Cahill

Tottenham are preparing to bid for Bolton Wanderers defender Gary Cahill.

Tottenham are preparing to bid for Bolton Wanderers defender Gary Cahill.

The Daily Mail says Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has targeted a centre-back and striker for the January window but needs to sell to fund his rebuilding.

Redknapp still believes that 25-year-old Cahill represents the best value for a defender despite his sending off for Bolton at White Hart lane on Saturday.

Chelsea are the favourites to sign Cahill although a fee has yet to be agreed. Cahill is out of contract in the summer and Chelsea hope £7million will prove enough.

However, Chelsea’s dip in form and Tottenham’s resurgence has given Redknapp hope of pulling off a coup he narrowly missed out on in August.
