Benitez wants to bring Trotters man to Anfield.
Rafa Benitez is hoping to lure Bolton Wanderers centre back Gary Cahill to Anfield this summer. The Liverpool boss is hoping to get significant funding from an prospective new-owners but if he fails to get the cash injection he needs then he is ready to offload some squad players to help bring in new additions and has reportedly placed the England defender on his wishlist.
The 24 year old was on the periphery of Fabio Capello’s international set up before injury set him back in his race for a World Cup place. The former Aston Villa man has improved immeasurably since his move to the Reebok and has been linked with a move away from the Trotters for some time.
Owen Coyle has tried to distance the player from such speculation but may find it hard to prevent Cahill’s head from being turned by interest shown by the Anfield side who are looking to improve their back four and also looking to add to their ‘homegrown’ quota.
