Bolton manager Owen Coyle has revealed he has been receiving enquiries about star defender Gary Cahill but a concrete offer is yet to be made.
Coyle welcomed Cahill to Bolton's pre-season training yesterday and the Scottish tactician has said he is getting fed up with all the speculation and talk surrounding the England international.
The Trotters boss has explained clubs will only be able to tempt Cahill away from the Reebok stadium if the £17m buy-out clause in his contract is met.
Manchester City, Tottenham and Arsenal have all been closely linked with moves for the 25-year-old but as yet, no formal offers have been tabled.
“There have been various interests in Gary - but that is all it has been," Coyle explained. "Clubs have been on and noted that they think Gary is a player they like. But there is nothing concrete for him.
"As soon as I know something he will be the next to hear. There are big clubs after him, but it is up to them to come on and back that up. If they don’t, I hope they move on somewhere else and leave the boy alone.
“If a bid comes in, we will look at it. If it doesn’t we will make the best of the situation. We know we have got a top-class player in our ranks.
“It is frustrating for everybody, but Bolton Wanderers is Gary’s club and we pay him a good salary. He is focussed on the job and will be until something happens.
"I don’t want to lose Gary, but if the right offer came in for him it would be better sooner rather than later.”
Mega-rich City were initially believed to be the favourites to land Cahill but it is thought Arsenal is the player's preferred choice.
