According to reports from Polish site Onet sport, Bolton Wanderers tried to sign Polish international striker Kamil Wilczek on Deadline Day.

The article from Onet stated (in a rough translation):

“Wilczek has a similar problem at Brondby. The balance is the same as Teodorczyk - in comparison with last year’s worse by 15 goals. The 30-year-old striker was interested in Bolton Wanderers, previously Lech Poznan. For now he stays in Denmark, which in one case brings him closer to a friend from Belgium - it will be difficult for him to be in the squad for the World Cup.”

The name Kamil Wilczek might be familiar to you. The 30 year old, who now plays for Danish side Brondby IF, had a trial with Bolton three years ago.

Wanderers, then managed by Neil Lennon, ran the rule over Wilczek for a week. But Lennon opted to sign Adam Le Fondre on loan from Cardiff City instead, which worked out brilliantly.

Reports in Poland state that Lech Poznań will pursue a move for the Polish international Wilczek, having had a bid rejected recently.

Wanderers targeted many players as potential replacements to Gary Madine. Josh Magennis, Chris Martin, Ashley Fletcher, David McGoldrick and Michiel Kramer are some of the names Wanderers pursued.

It’s still thought that Bolton will try and sign a free agent striker.
