The English defender would be a perfect recruit for Arsene Wenger who has been without a solid and reliable central defensive player for quite some time. Thomas Vermaelen looked to be back after nearly missing all of last season, but now he once again is sidelined.
His injury has once again exposed just how week the Gunners back line truly is. If Arsenal want a chance at winning something for the first time in more than half a decade, they need reinforcements yesterday.
Cahill could be available for around £12 million, and with Bolton suffering from debt built up over the last several years he could be sold on reluctantly to balance the books a little more in favor of the club.
With only a season remaining on his conflict, the player could stay at the Reebok for another season and then move on a free transfer next summer but Arsenal truly could use him sooner rather than later.
