Cahill: Attracting interest from big clubs and Coyle has urged defender's suitors to make a bid
Owen Coyle has urged clubs interested in signing Bolton Wanderers defender Gary Cahill to make the 'right offer sooner rather than later'.
Cahill has been linked with a string of the Premier League's leading clubs after impressing at the Reebok Stadium during the past couple of seasons.
Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are reported to be leading the chase for the England centre-half, but have yet to firm up their interest with bids.
Trotters boss Coyle admits he is prepared to let Cahill move on this summer in order to fulfil an ambition of playing in the UEFA Champions League.
However, Coyle is growing impatient that the speculation has not been followed up by offers and he is keen for a swift resolution to the situation.
"If someone comes in with the right deal for Gary and the club, he would go with our blessing."
