Clinton Morrison urges Arsenal to sign proven winner, was earning £100,000-a-week last season

Former Premier League football Clinton Morrison has told Talk Sport that Arsenal should look to sign Gary Cahill on a free transfer.

The ex-Crystal Palace striker was a pundit on Jim White’s show and believes the former Chelsea man would be a ‘great signing’.

Arsenal have been linked with a move for Juventus star Daniele Rugani on loan (Corriere Torino), and Morrison thinks he’d be ideal alongside Cahill.

He told Talk Sport: “One man who’s available at the moment is Gary Cahill.

“I know they want younger players but if you sign Cahill to play alongside say, Rugani, then it’s a great signing.”

Cahill is 33 now but Arsenal will undoubtedly be on the lookout for defenders before the window slams shut next month.

TBR Verdict

This isn’t a bad shout from Morrison.

It is perhaps a surprise that Cahill hasn’t been picked up by anyone just yet given his vast experience.

The veteran earned £100,000-a-week during his last year at Chelsea and Arsenal may be unwilling to give him such a sum.

A chance to play for a couple more years at a top Premier League outfit would surely appeal to the Champions League-winning defender, however.

Alongside someone like the 25-year-old Rugani, it could be a decent partnership for the Gunners going into next season.
