As Deadline Day moves forward (it's not quite in full swing yet), Bolton Wanderers may well be a very busy club for the first time in a few years. The club still have a few deals to confirm, a few to deny, and maybe one or two players to kick out the door. The latest rumor comes from the Daily Mirror, claiming that David Ngog is a transfer target for Martin Jol's Fulham and that talks have begun.

The fee rumored is a very cool £2.5 million and should Fulham offer anywhere near that much money, Bolton Wanderers could easily take the money and run.

Ngog was brought in during the tail end of summer 2011 by Owen Coyle in a (reported) £4 million switch from Liverpool after David Ngog failed to impress with the reds' lofty standards. Since then, he's had some good moments but his Bolton stay can be best described as nothing special for a forward.

In 17 games in the Championship and FA Cup this season, Ngog has had numerous injury issues with his back but has managed fourr goals and two assists for Bolton. In the 2011/12 Premier League campaign, Ngog managed four goals and four assists in 39 appearances across League, FA Cup, and Carling Cup play.

Should Ngog depart, Bolton's strike force would consist of Marvin Sordell, Craig Davies, Kevin Davies, and Tom Eaves.

Fulham had apparently tried for David Ngog last summer, lodging a reported £3 million bid that Owen Coyle and Bolton Wanderers rejected.
