Bolton Wanderers defender in Barcelona link


According to reports in England, Barcelona have joined the race to sign highly-rated Bolton Wanderers centre-back Gary Cahill, who has been linked with a number of clubs including Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Juventus.

Clubs on the continent were put on alert in early September when Cahill revealed his ambition of playing European football by saying: “As a professional footballer in general you want to strive to be the best you can and try to get to the highest level you can. Playing European football would be fantastic but at the minute I’m not doing that so all I can do is put my performances in for Bolton Wanderers.”

The 25-year-old is out of contract next summer and could therefore leave the Trotters for free, but Barca boss Pep Guardiola is thought to be weighing up a €5m bid in the January transfer window.
