Liverpool FC to snap up centre-back as Arsenal and Chelsea pull out

Cahill will be heading to Anfield this summer for an initial £14mLiverpool FC are ready to step up in their efforts to land Bolton Wanderers centre-back Gary Cahill by offering Owen Coyle’s side at least £12m up front plus numerous calculated add-ons should Liverpool reach the top four next season.

The current Bolton valuation for Cahill is around the £17m mark which has put the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea off. Arsenal feel the price is too high and have turned their attentions to 28 year old Phil Jagielka of Everton, whilst Chelsea still consider Cahill to be a back-up defender and do not want to pay £17m for a squad player whilst John Terry could still have a few seasons left in him.

With Cahill having not played in the Champions League before, it is not something that he will miss for one more season, meaning he will be able to focus on getting the Anfield side into the top four before embarking on a European campaign should the Merseyside outfit prove good enough.

Bolton are yet to receive any offers however will consider a shorter price with lucrative add-ons believing Liverpool to be within the top four within at least the next two season.
