With Harry pledging to show Luka Modric the club’s ambition, there are reports that Spurs will now move quickly in the transfer market and after the decision was finally made on the future of Johnathan Woodgate, the need for a new centre back must now be a priority.
With that in mind, Bolton’s Gary Cahill seems to be back on the club’s radar and Bolton manager Owen Coyle is expecting something to happen before too long,
“Gary could play for anyone, and I really mean that, so if I’m honest I’m a little bit surprised there hasn’t been anything,” Coyle said.
“Looking across the marketplace and a few of the deals that are going on at this moment in time, it does surprise me that there hasn’t been that concrete offer.
It was believed that the player was looking to Manchester City to step in but while their interest has cooled, Spurs could take advantage. The price seems to have dropped from £20m when this story last came out to around £17m so could Gary Cahill be the first big money signing that shows Modric and everyone else that Tottenham mean business?
