There is a very interesting report today saying that Arsenal are very close to signing the Bolton defender Gary Cahill, and it is being said in Bolton that the deal will include the Spanish youngster Ignasi Miquel going the other way, and possibly Nicklas Bendtner as well!
If true it is great news for Miquel, as it is obvious he has far too many centre-backs ahead of him at Arsenal already even without the arrival of Cahill, but he will have far more first team chances at the Reebok.
As for Bendtner, he may just be relieved that he has found a team willing to take him, but is it likely that he may rrefuse in the hope that a better (I mean Champions League team) offer comes along?
I hope he realises that to play regularly in a mid-table team (and score lots of goals!) is more likely to be a springboard to further success in the future. It didn’t do Cahill any harm, and look at how Daniel Sturridge did at Bolton last season.
Talking about Chelsea didn’t a certain Nicklas Anelka get his chance at Stamford Bridge through playing his heart out at Bolton as well……
