OC: Cahill could be sold in Jan

The England centre-back was a summer target of Arsenal before

Arsene Wenger decided to instead sign Per Mertesacker from Werder

Bremen for £8million. Reports have suggested Wenger could

renew his interest in Cahill, who is thought to be valued at

£17million by Bolton, while Tottenham failed in attempts to

complete a deal. Coyle would prefer to keep his star man, but the

Bolton boss acknowledges factors may mean his club’s hierarchy will

have to think about a sale. “That is something that will be seen to

be the case in January,” Coyle said at a pre-match press conference

ahead of Saturday’s trip to West Brom when questioned about

Cahill’s future. “I would love to work with Gary Cahill every day

of the week for as long as I could because he is a top player and a

fantastic young man. “Again, sometimes things are taken out of your

grasp. We will wait and see what January brings. “But, for this

moment in time, what’s more important is we continue to improve as

a team and continue to pick up points in the Premier League.”
