Report: Wanderers, Wigan, Nottingham Forest apparently eye Icelandic winger

Dean Mouhtaropoulos

It is no secret that Bolton Wanderers are looking to bolster the options out wide. With Rob Hall already in, it has been widely suggested that Wanderers manager Dougie Freedman is looking to add another option on the flank as the Whites prepare for another long, 46-game league season.

Sky Sports and their notorious sources have suggested that Bolton could well be interested in 22 year old Icelandic international Jóhann Berg Guðmundsson. A current member of the AZ Alkmaar first team, he has made 84 appearances, scoring six goals for the dutch side.

Guðmundsson spent part of his youth career in England as part of both the Chelsea & Fulham acadamies respectively. As always the case with these sort of stories, Sky also claim other Championship clubs of similar reputation are keeping tabs on the midfielder, namely Wigan & Nottingham Forest in this instance. The 6'1" winger joined AZ in 2009, signing a five-year deal which is set to expire this coming summer.

Guðmundsson is an international colleague of former Bolton Wanderers right back Grétar Steinsson who also spent an earlier part of his career at AZ Alkmaar. A man with the club close to his heart, Steinsson is currently visiting the area as part of a training camp with his current club, Kayserispor.
