Laur and out! Former Chelsea star Cahill all set to sign with Emery and Arsenal this summer?

With news that Laurent Koscielny wants to leave Arsenal tis summer, there has been some talk in the media that the Gunners could reignite their interest in free agent Gary Cahill.

Bordeaux have put forward a three-year deal to Koscielny, who has entered the final year of his contract at the Emirates, and while the Gunners want Koscielny to stay and run down his contract, the defender wants long-term security at the age of 33.

And now reports have claimed that the centre-back wants to be released on a free so he can return to his homeland, and he won’t link up with Unai Emery in the United States.

That has led to a whole load of speculation about whom could come in and replace the Frenchman at the club, with free agent Cahill now available to make a free move to the Emirates.

The defender, who won every major honour with the Blues, was not offered the kind of deal that he wanted to stay at Chelsea and is seeking a fresh move to another Premier League club, and he would replace the experience lost if Koscielny does leave.

Cahill insists he is still fit despite starting just six games last season, and wants to stay in the games best League, telling the TalkSpirt website in May: “I’m fit as a fiddle and ready to go. I’ve used the time I’ve not been playing wisely.

“This chapter will close and another will open for me without a doubt, so I have a few more years left to play.”

It was time for Cahill to leave Chelsea as he was done at Stamford Bridge and no longer needed, even as a back-up. So if Arsenal are serious about making a move, They should consider the switch.

Emery has issues at the back and need some experience along with quality, and landing the former Chelsea captain for nothing is a not a big risk to take, especially as he will be brought in primarily to add strength in depth to the side.

He may no longer be the top Premier League defender he once was, but he may still have something to offer Emery for a season or two.
