According to The Football League paper, Bolton Wanderers are eyeing up a move for former Peterborough United striker Paul Taylor. The article states:

"A host of EFL clubs are chasing the signing of former Peterborough and Ipswich forward Paul Taylor. The 29-year-old left Posh in April, after being told he would not be offered a new deal, and The FLPunderstands League One sides Rochdale, Bradford, Bristol Rovers and Wigan, and newly promoted Championship side Bolton, are all interested in the player’s services.

In January, Grant McCann confirmed Peterborough had turned down a bid from Mansfield for Taylor, but while the Stags are assembling an impressive squad and have made 13 signings so far this summer, they are no longer interested. Bolton meanwhile are heavily interested in Taylor, with the club desperate to add some attacking flair to the side, after selling Zach Clough to Nottingham Forest in January, and struggling to agree a new contract with winger Filipe Morais."

The 29 year old's goal scoring record isn't great. He only managed to score three times for The Posh last season in 39 league games. It's obvious Wanderers need to add to their attacking ranks, but is Taylor the right signing?
