The Blues are hot on the trail of one of the top performing English centre-backs in the Premier League.
Despite enjoying the tightest defence in the Premier League statistically, Chelsea’s rearguard has looked leaky in recent times due to injuries to Alex and John Terry.
It was recently reported that Chelsea had failed in a bid to land Benfica defender David Luiz for £17m, and it appears that the Blues are now looking to put an end to their defensive woes by signing consistent Bolton Wanderers centre-back Gary Cahill .
Bolton have done exceptionally well so far this campaign to currently sit sixth in the league, with Gary Cahill proving one of their top performers.
As such, Bolton will be reluctant to let go of their star defender, and it may take a bid of up to €15m for manager Owen Coyle to accept parting ways with the player. (IMScouting)
Chelsea do not appear to have a great deal of strength in depth at the back and the west London club are looking for alternative centre back options and have opted to pass on Benfica’s David Luiz and instead focus their attentions on Bolton defender Gary Cahill instead.
The 25 year old Sheffield born has been a very consistent performer over the past couple of seasons and has been rewarded with recognition and a call up to the England set up. Owen Coyle will not want to lose the solid centre back but may find it hard to ward off interest from the Premier League champions.
