“Gary Cahill should be walking on air heading back to Bolton Wanderers. Against Ghana he showed he’s comfortable on the ball, he can change direction quickly and that he has got a good awareness of the defensive line – not an easy thing to do at Wembley with all the pressure of making his first start. . . Bolton paid Aston Villa £5million for him in 2008 and back then some thought they had paid too much. But it looks a bargain. Managers at Champions League clubs would have to pay £15m to get him now. He is probably out of Arsenal’s price range but any of the other big clubs will pay the money – possibly Liverpool or Manchester City and he could go to either, if Bolton elect to cash in.”
Cahill does certainly fit the bill for what Liverpool are looking for. With Jamie Carragher going into the twilight of his career, aged 33, Sotirios Kyrgiakos also closing in on the latter stages of his playing time, as well as Daniel Agger’s constant injury worries, Cahill could be seen as an ideal candidate for a summer purchase.
The 25 year old has many of the attributes which would command him a place in the Liverpool team. He is very commanding in the air and is very dangerous in the opposition box at corners. During his career at Bolton so far, he has already scored 11 league goals in over 100 appearances for the Trotters and he would certainly give the Reds that much needed attacking threat which Kyrgiakos currently provides.
