According to The Express, Bolton Wanderers striker Alex Samizadeh is a possible target for SPL side St Johnstone. A tweet from Express writer Scott Burns states:

Samizadeh, only 18, found first team chances hard to come by last season. The Iranian youngster made his debut back in the 2015/2016 season, coming on as a substitute during Wanderers' 3-1 defeat against Brentford last April.

The youngster has only played once since, playing eight minutes after coming on as a substitute against Blackpool in the EFL trophy. Samizadeh also spent time on loan with Chorley last season.

The former Manchester City youth player has been offered another year scholarship deal, having featured prominently for David Lee's U23 side. It's unknown whether St Johnstone will be able to convince Samizadeh to join.

Would it be a mistake to let Samizadeh leave? Who knows. Plenty of Wanderers fans have wanted the youngster to appear more for the first team.
