Get the job Dann Arsenal.

Byline: OLIVER HOLT

CENTRAL defender Scott Dann (above) has emerged from the wreckage of Birmingham City's relegation as one of the most soughtafter transfer targets of the summer.

His pounds 12million move to Stoke City collapsed last week but Arsenal have hardened their interest in him since then and new Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is also weighing up a move for him.

Villas-Boas is keen to recruit a centre-half before the start of the season and is studying tapes of Dann, Bolton's Gary Cahill and Everton's Jack Rodwell.

But it is Arsenal who are leading the chase for the commanding centre half whose absence with injury in the second half of last season was a crucial factor in Birmingham's demise.

Dann, 24, would cost Arsenal around pounds 10m.
