Despite constantly speculation linking Bolton`s Gary Cahill to Arsenal, Wanderers manager, Owen Coyle says there has been nothing "concrete" in the way of a bid for the defender.
Our defence towards the end of the season became so shaky almost every single set piece we had to defender was met with fear and trepidation, it became so bad we were the worst club in the entire league at defender free-kicks and corners, and for a team that was, for a large part of the season, the only challenger to Man United, that`s just not going to cut it.
In the end, we dropped to fourth and the cries from the stands came for Wenger to "spend some f*cking money", the many believing a top quality centre-back was in order.
This obvious need for solidifying our defensive unit led to much speculation that Cahill would move to the Gunners after he claimed it would be hard to say no to one of the top clubs.
However Coyle says there has been no bids from Arsenal, or any other clubs for that matter.
'Gary has been the subject of speculation every day, probably to the point he is frustrated by it, I have been very open. Some of the elite clubs in this country have noted their interest. But there has been nothing concrete. Until that changes, Gary is a Bolton player.'
With the inevitable loss of Gael Clichy our defence has only become weaker since the season finished, let`s hope for some more positive news over the next week or so as the players return to training.
