Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has been seeking a new centre back all season, with countless names coming up in unfounded rumours. Now, it appears Dalglish has finally made a decision.
The 25-year-old has been heavily rumoured to be on the way out of the Reebok Stadium since last summer, with all four of England's top clubs having registered their interest. Liverpool have tabled bids before, but Bolton have always held strong on a price that no one seems willing to spend.
Right now, the Anfield club's central defense consists of veteran Jamie Carragher, star Daniel Agger, depth men Martin Skrtel and Sotiris Kyrgiakos and youngster Martin Kelly. Dalglish is eager to add some significant talent to the middle and Cahill seems like just the man.
At 6'2", Cahill would add significant stealth to the Liverpool defense. His strength is one of the main reasons he has been so sought after.
In the past three seasons, Cahill has made 111 appearances in Bolton's white, scoring an impressive 11 goals. He made his England debut against Ghana on the 29th of April this year.
The Sheffield native could cost Liverpool anywhere from 10 to 20 million pounds, but would be an immediate improvement to the back four.
