Barcelona are ready to join the race for Bolton’s England centre-half Gary Cahill – and give him a dream shot at Champions League glory.

The Catalan giants have been tracking Cahill since he made his international debut and ­supremo Andoni Zubizarreta is due to make a personal check on him.

Cahill could be sold by Owen Coyle’s club in the next window before he leaves for free at the end of the campaign – with Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs also on his trail. However Barca, looking to sign a classy centre-half who would be eligible for the Champions League ­campaign, would blow them all away if they decide to bid.

Bolton have good relations with Barca after trying to sign some of their players in the ­summer, only to be knocked back on Thiago Alcantara and Jeffren Suarez.

And Barca may offer them some of their other reserves to sweeten the deal, although Wanderers are likely to look for cash and hope to get as much as £8million for Cahill, 25.

Cahill would clearly jump at the move to the Nou Camp and will try to stay in prime form to attract them to buy. Chelsea are also studying him and will see him at close hand today.
