Arsenal, Man City in £17M battle for Bolton defender Cahill

Arsenal and Manchester City are battling for Bolton Wanderers defender Gary Cahill.

The London Evening Standard says Arsenal are set for a £17million battle with Manchester City for Cahill after losing out to Manchester United in the race to sign Phil Jones from Blackburn.

Cahill is still top of Wenger's wish-list and a club source claimed today that his valuation is "not impossible".

Wenger is searching for a commanding centre-back and believes Cahill fits the bill perfectly but he was reluctant to agree to Bolton's valuation in January and considered a deal for Blackburn's Christopher Samba instead.

Arsenal face competition for Cahill's signature from City, who can offer a superior wage packet, while a move to Eastlands would enable Cahill to remain at home in the north-west.
