According to Alan Nixon of The Sun, Bolton Wanderers are interested in Ipswich Town striker, Joe Garner.

Wanderers now look set to miss out on the signing of Bradford City striker Charlie Wyke, who is close to a move to Sunderland.

Garner was linked with Bolton back in June, with a £500,000 transfer fee mooted at the time.

Best known for his spell at Deepdale, Joe Garner is a striker who i’ve always thought could one day play for Wanderers.

Having scored 121 career goals, Garner is a proven goalscorer and would certainly be an interesting option to pursue. Garner scored ten goals for Ipswich last season, having joined from Rangers for £1 million.

For £500,000, it’s a reasonable fee for a goalscorer like Garner. If Ipswich would take that, it could be a shrewd signing for Bolton.
