According to The Sun journalist Alan Nixon, who linked Wanderers with a move for Conor McLaughlin on Sunday morning, also suggested on twitter that Bolton Wanderers were interested in a move for Scotland international and RB Leipzig winger, Oliver Burke.

Burke, 20, moved to the Bundesliga runners up last August from Nottingham Forest for a hefty £13 million sum, making him the most expensive Scottish footballer of all time. Burke has been linked to Premier League teams Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United, Brighton & Hove Albion and Huddersfield Town, but could Wanderers be about to beat them all to his signature? Probably not.

Later on yesterday, Nixon seemed to change his mind to a different Burke, that being West Ham United's Reece Burke.

The defender has been linked with a loan move to The Macron and having played for Phil Parkinson at Bradford, i'm more inclined to believe that over a move for Oliver Burke.

Although, Oliver Burke does follow Filipe Morais on twitter, so what does that mean?
