According to online site clubcall, Bolton Wanderers are looking at Leicester City striker Joe Dodoo (great name). The 20 year old, born in Ghana, has been with Leicester for seven years.

Neil Lennon reportedly sent a scout to watch Dodoo play in Leicester's 2-1 U21 defeat to Liverpool on Monday night.

Joe Dodoo made his first team debut in August, scoring a hat-trick as Leicester thumped Bury 4-1 in the second round of the League Cup away at Gigg Lane. He played the full 90 minutes and also assisted the goal scored by Andrej Kramarić.

Subsequently, Dodoo made his Premier League debut on the 29th August, coming on as a substitute for Marc Albrighton is Leicester's 1-1 draw with AFC Bournemouth. Dodoo then scored in the League Cup again last week against West Ham United, in a 2-1 win for the Foxes. With four goals in two games, Dodoo is currently the League Cup's top scorer.

Bolton and Neil Lennon's search for a new striker continues after failing to bring in other targets.

The Whites have already failed with moves for Swansea City forward Marvin Emnes and West Bromwich Albion striker Victor Anichebe, and are still waiting to hear from Charlton Athletic striker Igor Vetokele, who is reluctant to move before being fully match fit.

It's also doubtful Yann Kermorgant will be available for now after striker Callum Wilson went off on a stretcher, in the Cherries 2-1 defeat at Stoke City. Wilson will now be out for the next six months.
