Everton midfielder Tim Cahill at centre of transfer battle
The future of Everton midfielder Tim Cahill remains unclear after clubs in Saudi Arabia and China became the latest to make a move for the Australia international.
Reports have suggested Saudi club Al Hilal have made a multi-million pound offer to lure the midfielder to the Middle East while Press Association Sport understands Chinese side Guizho Renhe have made an official approach to the 32-year-old.
Last week Cahill turned down turned down a 16 million dollar (£10.3million) three-year deal from an unnamed club in Saudi Arabia.
The midfielder, who played a starring role in Australia's 1-1 draw in their World Cup qualifier against group leaders Japan today, has made no secret of his desire to one day play in the Middle East.
He has two years remaining on his contract at Goodison Park and is happy at the club he joined in 2004 but it is believed he would consider a move overseas.
