Chelsea Mulls Bid for Bolton Defender Cahill, Mail Says: Roundup

Nov. 9 (Bloomberg) -- The following is a roundup of sports stories from U.K. newspapers, with clickable links to the Web.

Cahill Move

Chelsea will make an 8 million-pound ($12.8 million) move for Bolton defender Gary Cahill in the January transfer period, the Daily Mail said.

Cahill, 25, is out of contract after this season. He was a target of both Arsenal and Tottenham over the summer, with neither matching Bolton’s valuation of 15 million pounds, the newspaper said.

Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas wants to shore up his club’s defense, which has allowed 15 goals in 11 Premier League matches and recorded just two shutouts, the Mail reported.

No Becks

Queen’s Park Rangers owner Tony Fernandes won’t be signing David Beckham because he feels the former England captain, whose contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy expires after the Major League Soccer season, wouldn’t get into the side, the Sun said.

“I’m not sure where we’d play Beckham because midfield is our strongest area right now,” the Sun quoted Fernandes as saying. “I think he’s happy where he is, so I don’t think it will happen.”

Defoe on Way Out?

Jermain Defoe could be on his way to QPR after Tottenham was linked with Juventus striker Amauri, the Daily Mirror said.

Defoe has been unable to get a regular game this season with Spurs. QPR manager Neil Warnock is desperate to add a proven player up front in January, the Mirror said. Amauri has fallen out of favor with Juventus coach Antonio Conte, the newspaper said.

Reus Wanted

Arsenal will battle Bayern Munich to sign Borussia Moenchengladbach forward Marco Reus, the Daily Mail said.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, acting on a tip from former goalkeeper Jens Lehmann, spoke with Moenchengladbach manager Lucien Favre about the 22-year-old, who has an 18 million-euro ($25 million) buyout clause in his contract, the Mail said.

Reus is considered one of Germany’s top prospects and Bayern believes it has the inside track to sign him, the Mail said.
