Chelsea defender Gary Cahill is the bookmakers’ favourite player to sign for Arsenal in the January transfer window.
According to bookmakers SkyBet via Football London, the recently retired England international centre back is likely to sign for the Gunners ahead of the other Arsenal-linked players.
Gary Cahill is at the odds of 5/4 to join Arsenal ahead of Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez (5/2), Paris Saint Germain (PSG) midfielder Adrien Rabiot
Earlier reports had claimed that the 33-year-old has agreed to join the Gunners in the January transfer window but it seems like the North Londoners are still a long way off a deal for the former Aston Villa and Bolton Wanderers player.
Gary Cahill has six months left on his contract with Chelsea but Blues boss Maurizio Sarri has revealed that the Englishman can leave the club amidst the fact that he can’t guarantee him more playing minutes.
Gary Cahill is presently the fourth choice centre back under Maurizio Sarri behind Andreas Christensen, David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger.
Arsenal have a free run at him after English Championship side Aston Villa pulled out of the race to sign him because of the huge financial figures involved in a transfer for the experienced player.
