As reported by The Newcastle Chronicle, Bolton Wanderers face competition from several sides in The Championship and League One for Adam Armstrong.

Wanderers boss Phil Parkinson told the Bolton News earlier in the week: “I think we will add to the squad at some stage, be able to freshen things up a little bit but the most important thing for me is making sure we keep what we have got.”

The article from the Newcastle Chronicle reports that several clubs are eyeing a move for Armstrong. It’s reported that the youngster has become frustrated at not being used more as a striker. The Chronicle stated:

“As the Chronicle reported last week, he could move elsewhere with interest from League One. Blackburn and Bradford City – who are long-term admirers of the former England under-19 man – are both interested in signing the striker if he becomes available while there is also some interest from the Championship.”

Adam Armstrong has scored three times for Wanderers this season, but has lost his place in the starting line-up recently to Will Buckley.

If Wanderers want to extend his loan deal until the end of the season, then they may have to play him more up front.

But with Gary Madine preferred as the sole striker, where does Armstrong fit?

Do you agree with Phil Parkinson that we need to keep all four loanees? Let us know in the comments box below.
