Bolton Wanderers have had a £4m bid accepted for Liverpool striker David Ngog, but Lancashire rivals Blackburn Rovers are also in the hunt.
Trotters manager Owen Coyle last week claimed that “time will tell” if Ngog would arrive at the Reebok Stadium, but appears to have got a step closer to bringing in some much needed reinforcements to his forward line.
Having lost Johan Elmander on a free transfer to Galatasaray at the end of the season, and Daniel Sturridge returning to Chelsea after his loan spell, the Bolton strikeforce has grown decidedly weaker over the summer, and Coyle is clearly attempting to rectify matters.
David Ngog has never quite convinced Liverpool fans of his attacking prowess, but scored his fair share of goals in the UEFA Europa League last season.
Perhaps he will make the grade at Bolton Wanderers.
