There is a lot of speculation that Liverpool are still in the market to sign a new centre-back this summer and Bolton’s Gary Cahill is reportedly high on our wanted list.
Cahill put in a solid display for Bolton in their opening Premier League game against QPR and the giant centre-back opened the scoring for Bolton with a superb goal that would have made any striker proud. Besides scoring the goal, Cahill looked very composed at the back and that is the kind of centre-back Liverpool should be looking to bring in if we are indeed after a centre-back.
Apparently Cahill has a £17million release clause and I wonder if Liverpool would be willing to spend so much on the 25-year-old England International. The beauty with Cahill is that we can bring in him and build or backline for the future around him. We have Jamie Carragher currently leading the defence but truth be told, Carra is get on in age and his legs will not go on for another 2 or 3 seasons. So rather than panic in a season or two, we can bring in Cahill now and start working with him alongside Carragher and then later on with Agger or Kelly. I am still a big believer that Kelly is a future centre-back for us as opposed to a right-back, and seeing him alongside Cahill would be great for Liverpool.
Please make this one more big signing Kenny.
