“The best outcome for us is for the player to join us. His technical attributes are immense. His pace is fantastic as well. He”s been playing magnificently at international level, normally alongside John Terry, and he can add to this squad or any squad.
“He can make this jump. But we are still far away in terms of agreement with the player.”
And According to the Daily Mirror, Liverpool are ready to vest their interest.
Manager Kenny Dalglish is a huge admirer of Cahill and is prepared to swoop, with the defender reportedly preferring to stay in the north.
Cahill joined Bolton from Aston Villa for 5million in January 2008 and has emerged as one of the country”s finest central defenders, forcing his way into Fabio Capello”s England squad.
